iridescent paint finish


I am fashioning 1/4 in. steel round stock pieces into the shape of a 20 inch hummingbird. What would you recommend to get an iridescent green or blue finish on the steel? I want the color to look like the actual color(s) of a hummingbird. Thank you.

Dear Jon, Without giving you an exact supplier name, I can tell you that if you call a number of powder suppliers you will find that one in particular has a niche for this type of product. Remember that powder suppliers each seem to have their own niche for a property of powder I.E. wrinkle, transluscents, clears, textures, veins, etc.
