gday all i'm about to start a build and would like to know if anyone here has mixed

Cerakote colours burnt bronze & graphite black.

i am looking to get a colour that in low light looks very dark but in sunlight shows the

burnt bronze like shark skin .

i have seen net pics of up to 80BB 20% black but it wasn't much darker than the bronze .




cheers Darren

I have not done the particular color you are looking for but the graphite black really adds a lot of black. When making a custom color I usually try small amounts in proportion to what I'm looking for. Remember it will look slightly different once dry. I would try a mix of 5-6ML burnt bronze with 4ml Graphite black and see where that gets you after test spraying something. Adjust from there after seeing your results.
Burnt Bronze is an awesome color I have worked with a bunch and it really changes depending on lighting.

this is exactly what i want but it will have to be dark as the rifle will be put in a black with

grey spider web stock .

The first two are burnt bronze. The scope rings have since been coated also. The suppressor is Coyote Tan for contrast. The multi cam is just thrown in for contrast.

Thanks for posting those. Pretty nice. I can see where you might want to try to put some graphite black with it. Tough call. It's pretty darn nice straight up too. Looking forward to seeing your results.

I don't think those two colors will go the way you want. I would do 75%bb 15%black 10% tungsten. I think the black plus tungsten will get you the type of shine. You are going for.

sounds interesting punisher.

this is pretty close and is 60% BB 40% GB a pity none of the pics are in direct sunlight

again not my rifle but i think i will try 50-50.

That does look great.

I am wondering if sniper grey would be a better add. The black is going to be 100% mat textured, so your combo is always going to look like a flat shade of grey with no shine. You could try a dark grey+ bronze+ stainless to give it a little pop and flare.

Either way it will look great, that's just what I think based on your description.
