Looking for reflective paint
I have a brace of four bare bulbs and would like to capture some of the light that is going skywards. I can put a length of flashing at a 45 deg angle above them, which would help. But is there a paint I can spray on there that would add to the reflectiveness?

I'd simply use white paint to reflect the most light. (If chrome mirror finish is not available)
No need for special/costly paints.

RBF, I got the paint and applied it. Looks like just another clear coat, no especial reflective qualities. Hoped for the best, though!
