In daylight, it is a different shade to the Subaru, but still very mush a "Smith" shade, sort of dark blue, but that richness is still there, and, the effect on the colour at night is almost identical. ..

I was reading a woodshop magazine and they had an interesting article about Milk Paint. Interstingly one of the samples of wood they painted looked pretty damn close to the grain and look of the Matt Smith box.Now I know DRIZ did his test sprays. But just curious if indeed the Subaru Paint is 100% sure.

As does the Subaru paint Doctor Iz received. Purpleblancmange told me he knows the paint was sprayed right on the bare wood. I am unaware of any other kind of paint you could brush or wipe on that would finish with the same quality. This metallic quality makes the grain much more visible than you'd have with another paint material. When I mentioned the paint Doctor Iz received, Purple was slightly coy about it, not directly answering that he knew how that came about, but not exactly innocent either.
