Default Paint Tech Tips

So paint scheme is to be Damascus Steel and this is the idea. I will take the parts to be painted down to bare metal then I will put dots of epoxy in a specific design all over parts in question, Then I will do a three shade version of black, chrome, and grey. These will be laid down a few layers per color, then I will sand it all flat, hopefully exposing the three different layers in a Damascus Pattern. How does this sound, any flaws in my thoery. Any good painters with tips?
BTW, this is Damascus in case you don't know, this is called a raindrop pattern and is the style I hope to pull off.
