    The best aerosol mirror chrome paint ive used is SpatzStix: It is actually a pretty decent “mirror” finish.

    It’s useful, it’s versatile, it’s everyone’s favorite product…foam! Let me acknowledge that foam can be a very dangerous material when not treated with care and respect. No respirator cartridge can filter out all of the bad stuff that comes out of foam when you break it down chemically. Acetone and hot knives were the processes […]
  • Hole-y Scrim! January 5, 2022
    Happy New Year from the Scenic Route Blog!
