First lay down your coats of white dip, then when you lay down the last layer, take your silver metalizer and lightly spray the entire car.

Painting Over Plasti-Dip
A brief run-through of my experience painting wheels with Plasti-Dip and

Some notes/things I learned here:
I strongly recommend against painting indoors like I did here. The fumes
are terrible even with a mask on, windows open, and fans going. It's a
As noted in the video, I don't recommend using the Plasti-Dip spray cans
until the very last drop, as they seem to want to spatter towards the end

Plasti Dip Snake Skin
Well guys this is a cool snake skin pattern, very very easy to do for those
of you who have or want to get an airbrush. basic simple beginner way that
i did this just for you guys! I started with a base of white, and gold
metalizer. sprayed the white down, while that was wet i added a good coat
of gold to get a nice tannish with a bit of sparkle for a scaly effect.
then i laid down the mesh, and sprayed the brown through the airbrush
first, and then the black outlines and specks. I then pulled the mesh off
and did a little shading and such to really make it pop. there are several
other advanced ways of doing this pattern, just did this one so you
beginners and guys who never airbrushed before can start out doing
something cool. YES IT IS ALL DONE WITH PLASTI DIP. i think this would be
cool to make some
"super snake" stripes with this design.
