    All I do is give it a blast, to give the coating something to adhere to. You can also put some of the transparent powder right over it without blasting for a really neat look. I've done that for a bunch of people.

    Just make sure it is clean of any oils right, Then hit it with a Clear top coat with say, some metal flake added for a sparkley look?

    You can, it will coat, but you will not get as good a bond if you don't prep it properly.

    a word of caution on adding metal flake....make sure its true metal flake, some of the metal flakes are actually made of ground polyester..
