Paul, do you have a pic of the flash design? That would help us to see what exactly you are thinking of?

depends on what shade of metal you want ? I find that on a dark metal ,Black an grey a simple light greywash works great . Always start off with a light shade you can always go darker an metal effect can be acomplished like so ,Thats just my know how , so i hope that helps :icon_cheesygrin: :icon_cheesygrin: Ed :icon_cool:
