    Hey all,

    I have a body I want to refinish in a DIY hack job that is more for fun than for anything else. That said, I do want it to look rad as hell. And what's more rad than black sparkles?

    What's a good brand of paint for this that I can get in high enough volumes to paint a bass body, that closely approximates the examples below?

    Easiest, I'd say duplicolor paint ship jet black, duplicolor paint ship metallic clear.
     
  5. The Rust-Oleum metallic branded paints are good and go on very well also.
