It is a plastic coating that was originally designed for things like handles and grips for tools. It peels up and doesn't leave any residue, so it's great for testing out paint ideas before going a permanent route. In most cases it comes in rattle can form, and it is very easy to use. Treat it like a can of spray paint, clean the surface first, then spray down light coats until you get the desired thickness, then just peel it up if you get tired of it. Here are a couple plasti dip projects I have done. As you can see, I'm not a fan of chrome, and plasti dip hides it nicely.

I bought my can from Home Depot, but any home improvement store will carry the flat black plasti dip. But if you want more color choices plastidipyourcar.com has more. It's great stuff, I've had a lot of fun with it.
