Bare Metal Foil Mixed w/Alclad

, will this be too obvious a contrast in surfaces? Anybody tried this?

It will look okay if you only use the Alclad in small areas.

One additional trick is to use something like #1200 or 2400 sandpaper and LIGHTLY go over the foil (dry, not wet) after it is applied (or even before, for that matter). Different grades of paper=different appearances. You do have to do the foiling after the paint since the foil generally does not take kindly to tape. Have used sticky notes on occasion and gotten away with it, but--
