    No, not the same rocket, three rockets.

    I'm looking for some team colors in metal flake and also the US Flag colors in metal flake. I know these won't match up exactly, but close is good enough for me.

    I think the two biggies, Rustoleum and Krylon have some of these available. I also some glitter coats and even a PEELABLE version formulated to be peeled off every 3 to 6 months! I wonder what happens if it's permanent? Also saw some gold and silver flake for the PEELABLE, must go over peelable top coat.

    What luck have any of y'all had with any of the metal flakes?

    Thanks,

    This is the colors I'm planning for:

    Would you be able to use a spray gun? I love metal flake jobs.

    Check out the Repli-Color line. I usually buy them off of Amazon. They have a lot of specialized colors like metallics. One of the few places that you can get Metallic Green in a spray can.

    Just curious: why such a magenta hue for the stripes in the flag?

    Duplicolor has a line of "Metal Specks" colors but only in those shown. I have used the red and blue with very good success. Auto Zone, Farm and Fleet and Amazon carries it but look online to see where you can get it where you are locally.
