When the Hard Rock Casino needed dozens of chrome guitars, they contacted Cosmichrome. Cosmichrome allows you to apply a chrome like finish to nearly any object and guitars are perfect for it. Because Cosmichrome is sprayed on in a paint booth it can be applied to nearly anything you can paint. Commonly called spray chrome, Cosmichrome is the only finish of its kind guaranteed not to turn yellow from sun exposure. This project is for the Hard Rock Casino. They look incredible.
These guitars made of wood. They were coated by http://coatofchrome.com for installation at the Hard Rock Casino. Don Pirre at Coat of Chrome has more than 15 years of spray chrome expertise.
This beautiful helmet was designed by Joseph Roth from Revenant Paint. Alternative Chrome Creations applied the Cosmichrome finish for the substrate. Joseph then sprayed a custom paint finish over the Cosmichrome base.
This is a fine example of the amazing things our customers do with Cosmichrome. These results can’t be accomplished with any other spray chrome. The helmet doesn’t conduct electricity so electroplating is out of the question. It has to be sprayed and even more importantly, the tinting, masking, and 3D engraved appearance must be accomplished without discoloring or peeling. Cosmichrome has incredible intra-coating adhesion so it can be taped with masking tape for custom paint applications.
Cosmichrome is the only spray chrome trusted by West Coast Customs, Counting Cars ( Count’s Kustomz) and General Motors.

A visit to West Coast Customs is always exciting. You never know which stars you might see there not to mention the stunning cars they create. Their shop has really grown over the years and their projects get more amazing. This year the Mitsubishi Motors 100th anniversary inspired a build replicating the first Mitsubishi car ever made. The challenge for Cosmichrome with this build was to simulate the original brass trim on the 1917 Model A Mitsubishi.
We made another trip to Burbank after the SEMA Show to help with a rare 1957 Cadillac featuring green tinted Cosmichrome trim. We also coated a guitar with the same color. While working on the 57 Cadillac we recoated a few trim parts for a new model Kia in copper tinted Cosmichrome. Copper and rose gold are the two most popular colors for Cosmichrome.

COSMICHROME EN 8 MINUTOS
If you are looking for how to apply a chrome finish to a 3D print your answer is here. Cosmichrome is ideal for applying simulated gold, chrome, copper and nickel finishes to 3D prints. The finish is applied in a paint booth. Most 3D model shops already have paint facilities so Cosmichrome is a logical addition to 3D part production. In this example the skulls are SLAs. I believe they were made in an Objet brand printer but I am not certain. They had a waxy residue from the setup material that I cleaned off with a toothbrush and alcohol. I mounted the prints to dowels using hot glue. Then I applied an Epoxy primer because I wasn’t certain how well I had removed the residue. Unfortunately the primer never hardened so I removed it with lacquer thinner and got fresh epoxy primer from the local paint store. I then let the primed part and let it dry over night at room temperature.
Then I applied Cosmichrome base coat. I applied three layers to be sure I got good coverage down in the low spots in all the detail on the model. I let the base coat dry over night at room temperature. The base coat can also be baked to speed up the drying process but on delicate 3D prints heat can distort the shape of the part so room temperature drying is the safest choice. After the base coat was completely dried I flame (plasma) treated the base coat then proceeded to the plating process you can watch in the video below.
I let the part air dry in front of a fan for about twenty minutes and then applied the top coat. Here is the final result.
Rose gold is very fashionable at the moment. We manufacture rose gold for electroplating that is very popular with jewelers and some people are plating car emblems with our brush rose gold too. You can simulate rose gold using Cosmichrome to take advantage of the rose gold surge in popularity. This is a sample of rose gold colored Cosmichrome created in our Montreal office.
