Topics I've Started

Bleed through........

22 February 2014 - 03:54 PM

Body is molded in red.  I want the body to be white.  I covered completely in silver, then several coats of Tamiya white primer.  Couple hours later and parts are turning pink.   So...


1) Any ideas?


2) I'm not hell bent on the car being white.  What colors (I really don't want black or aluminum) would hide the red bleed through?  Red?  What else?  

Two painting questions....

1)  If I have piece with some flat, and some gloss will it be uniformly glossy if I put a gloss clear over it?   For example, I paint a part in gloss white.  Then mask off a part and paint the rest a flat color.  Then hit the whole thing with gloss.  


2) I need to paint a body molded in red, white. So the red will not bleed, I paint it with a silver metallizer, then primer, then white.  Does that sound ok? 

Airbrush help needed!

I've been airbrushing for about 5 years, and thought I was getting good.  But lately I cannot lay down a glossy finish.  I have an Iwata double action.  Lately my flat finishes are coming out with a sandpaper finish.  And I can't get a decent finish with gloss paint, which luckily I rarely have to use.  I can't even get a good glossy finish out of Future.   What the heck am I doing wrong lately?  Thanks for the help.....

Painting and weather..

21 January 2014 - 06:02 AM

I airbrush most everything, and indoors. The only thing I use rattle cans for is car bodies. I occasionally see someone mention good weather for painting. I usually step out onto back patio to use rattle cans. Is there certain types of tempor humidity that yield better or worse results? Thanks.
