I'm working on these two, from the set 60288.

RE: Parts we are Working on - Part Deux - Takeshi Takahashi - 2020-12-22

I've created the stickers from sheet 4650854 in set 3185 Summer Riding Camp.
   

The patterns are printed on a silver mirror sheet and I am wondering which color should be used, 80 metallic silver or 383 chrome silver.
The color regulation says: "In general, metallic colours on stickers, patterned parts, and other printed materials should use the LDraw Metallic Colours and not Chrome or Pearl colours. There are exceptions that will be handled on a case by case basis."
https://www.ldraw.org/article/512.html#colours

For the sticker piece 4650854h, the silver is functional as a mirror, thus I've used color 383 similar to the other mirror sticker 4614425b.
It is a sufficient reason for an exception, I think.

However, the silver in other pieces 4650854a-g and 4650854i-o is only a decorative purpose.
I've complied with the regulation and used color 80 but got hold.
https://www.ldraw.org/cgi-bin/ptdetail.cgi?f=parts/4650854a.dat

I think the solution is either the following two:
(A) Apply the exception to the entire sticker sheet 4650854 and use color 383 (better reproduction of real part)
(B) Observe the regulation as much as we can, and retain using color 80 for decorative pieces

The similar problem comes with sticker sheet 4620858 in set 3187 Butterfly Beauty Shop, and more.

Thanks,
Takeshi

I believe we've used Chrome Silver for similar stickers.

Yes. Color 80 is used for plain, diffusing printed silver, but when sticker really acts as a mirror (even if it's not the intended usage), 383 chrome silver is the right choice. The point is to have the best possible visual appearance.

Thanks Orion and Philo.
I've understood why Magnus made hold vote and I agree that reproducing better color than sticking to the regulation.
The color 80 metallic silver is apparently different from the mirror sheet (I've found that color in 76371pb080 and 87552pb058 from my daughter's brick box).

Yes, this is the right way. The ldconfig file not only contain rgb values, but also other properties of the colour.

The spec state "There are exceptions that will be handled on a case by case basis."
Metalized plastic stickers with a chrome looking finish is one such exception, and should use 383.
