rame....or japanese sparkle paint
anyone ever get sparkle paint done here in the US? apparently its just metal flake mixed in at various steps to give the sparkle some depth. could a powdercoater do it? im not talking about pearl.

winner sparkle and metal stars...the pic makes it look like a little kid's test after a teacher grades it, but in person i can almost guarantee its gorgeous.

Check out the pink bike built by SquareBuilt at

I've seen it in person and it is a very intense sparkle. I need to contact the builder about a fixing a bent fork and repainting my frame with a similar sparkle paint like it original was.

a decent auto paint shop will be able to do flake, pearl, and/or candy as a multistage shoot. not sure about powder, though.

Before I looked up the term 'rame', I thought you were calling the sparkle paint lame in a Japanese accent--rame.
