correctly it lifts and gradually drops off. Personally I dislike the stuff. BTW this process isn’t used exclusively for resin models and certain companies producing models in white-metal use it.

Silver paint is applied by brush or sprayed on using guards to ensure overspray doesn’t hit unwanted surfaces. This is a bit hit and miss and the reality it doesn’t look very convincing as chrome-plating.

Pad-printed allows for the chrome to be applied over curved areas and can be applied with precision and is the most convincing.
