Yup , I plan on doing my whole chaplain suit with it, so far so good. Doesn't crack at all, even under severe bending, very nice results so far. It's more a graphite type finish, not just metal flaked black. I got six cans of the pearlizer for 30 bucks off amazon and I buy the plain black Plasdip at Home Depot for like 4 bucks a can, so not too expensive. More Pix eventually.
