Did you ever try...

The paint sticks that WASCO sells? These things are a great aid in getting color just where you need it. Silver and chrome always seem to fade away some what once you are finished. They offer a wide selection of colors and they can be applied many different ways.On the gill cover I will just rub it on with my finger and on other areas I may apply it with a small artist brush. Granted on big salmon it may take you a while but the end results are well worth it.

Have You Tried Lifetone's Chrome Pearlescent?

Although I believe it is only available in lacquer I get good results with Lifetone's Chrome Pearlescent.
