I already have raw/polished rims, was wondering how do you spray paint them to look shiny/chrome blue,purple,green, etc. Not the typical solid color. Any tips?

You don't. It'll look like shit. Seriously I'm not being an asshole it just very rarely looks good.

You can get trans colours mixed up, which would give the affect you want. But it will flake off and look poo. You'll never get them to look factory painted with a rattle can

Not really planning on mixing them colors, their just examples. Planning to get a color that's shiny and not solid

It'll still flake off. Rims are anodized, not painted, usually. Even if you were to raw them, clean them, prime them, paint them, and laquer them with the best quality stuff you can find. It'll flake over time. Powder coating might work. But you'd be getting close to the cost of a new rim either way.

Unless you do a ghetto job and just re spray them every now and then
