There are a couple forms and a few methods. In all forms, as the paint dries, it goes from a liquid to a shrink wrap-like rubber coating which can be peeled off.

Spray can: use it like spray paint
In a can (like brush on paint): dip things in it
In a can (and put inside a paint sprayer): use it like any other paint

You can also combine colors to make your own customer shade, and they have an additive to make the paint UV resistant. Pretty incredible stuff.



AND YOU CAN JUST PEEL IT OFF WITHOUT DAMAGING THE PAINT UNDERNEATH!

Just sprayed the fake chrome vent things that go on the side... The "FOCUS" was covered in paint, so I don't know how it's going to turn out but we'll see. I'll post up pics when they dry, and decide whether I like it, or I'm peeling it off and trying again
