        I've got some 3d printed rings and have been dying to try this paint. It's supposed to be the most chrome paint.

        The Krylon paint is $7.99 at Micheals, big difference in price. I tried some other 3 part chrome paint and could not get the same results as the Krylon paint.

        I am working on some rounded ones now, should be pretty similar to the original rings.

          Rounded ones came out pretty good! Now I am trying to design the outside ring, but I dont think that I will have any luck making them look segmented like the originals. I have a design for flat ones and if they come out ok, then I will try and make some rounded ones.
