  • Dormant vs Chameleon

    Are dormant powders the paint version of chameleon colors? The local bicycle shop is paying BIG $$ for chameleon paint jobs! I've got the chance to "ease" on into this job if I can come up with a chameleon style color that he likes! What's the going rate with/without forks in a single color $110 to $80 or so?

    I have seen a few up here,up to $300 for a paintjob in fades/metallics and the chamellion colors.The fades and metallics were not impressive as we have seen better posted on here by forum members.The chamelion looked ok,but not for $300.I'd say the flip flops or illusion colors would work well.I had 3 bikes come in after my pinstriped valve cover as most thought powder was just like plain old paint.

    Its a good look for some bikes,the illusion stuff and metal flake.Lots of people are restoring 20-30 year old bikes up here and are trying to match some old school looks.Big $$ for a "Vintage bike"

      I'd say the flip-flops are more the equal to chameleon paint. The big reason those paintjobs cost so much is that the paint is it about $100 an OUNCE! I had a guitar painted and luckily, one once of color did it. Barely.

          You may want to try this

          https://shop.houseofkolor.com/hok/st...ordsPerPage=12

          scroll down to the Kameleon Pearls...........lol but at $353.09 for 2oz I dont think you would want to do too many trial pieces

          I know their regular pearls work with powder cause I have used them alot......still waiting for the "right$" customer to let me try out the Kameleon Pearls

              At one time HOK chameleon was like 4 grand for a gallon or something ridiculous. That equals two gallons when reducer is added. $3K alone for a total auto paint job.

              I'd be interested in trying true chameleon powder when ever it comes out.

                Rohm Haas has a chamelion. I coated a set of rims last weekend with it. Looked awesome!
