Plasti dip 101

1. Make sure you buy the correct color

That is all!!!!

Ok so bought matte black and what I thought was silver metalizer. Only noticed after 2nd coat what color I actually bought.

Being as I'm color blind and it was getting dark didnt help. So couldn't stop. Kept going.

Matte black with gold metalizer on SGM.

Not great. Nor what I wanted but you learn and move on. And it was fun to do.

And I'm still pissed at myself for not reading it correctly

At least with the Plastidip, you can remove it if you're not satisfied with the look!
