(I have no ties to the company) Blue only, silver is gloss. I did mine with a gun but it does come in a can.

I thought you paid an arm and a leg for it? Mother spent less than 50 bucks...

Ok. But I thought you told us it was expensive so that's probably why nobody pursued it.

Randy said he used 3 cans. So that would be 150 bucks. Kinda expensive for spray paint.

I think it would end up being even more than that since you would need a base coat and then the "soft touch" clear on top of that.

Well 3X $40 is $120 but you only need 1 coat of this. Now I bought a quart and when WyomingWarrior paints his tins that will be 3 bikes for $150.
Look you guys can do the math, one is for dipping screwdrivers and the other goes on $250k cars. The manufacture claims you can't even scratch it with a key and that it's self healing. I've taken 2 first place and 1 second place, and the judges have told me it's because of the mod on the tank, the soft feel paint and the CT. I'm not affiliated with the company, just like to pass on what I think is a cool product.

I agree that it's a cool product... but I personally don't have the paint experience to do my bike with something permanent that's also going to eat up a significant portion of my mod money.

As far as applications go though, they recommend using Alsa soft touch on drawer pulls and door handles.... Oh, and they specifically state that it's not for private consumer use. Plasti-dip comes in different colors now specifically because of the all the people using it on cars and wheels.

But hey, as soon as I have a $250k car I'll be sure to look into your doorknob paint.
