Tinting Clear Plastic Question...
Posted 21 August 2006 - 12:07 AM
I will be doing it by spraying it with one of the Tamiya clear paints.
My question is, should I spray the clear on the OUTSIDE of the plastic, or the Inside?
I'm not going to say what the project is yet, but I will say it's an MPC annual kit and I already made a major body mod....

The few windows I've tinted, I did on the inside, mostly because I wanted to preserve the bare plastic finish on the exterior for waxing/polishing. A properly tinted window with the outer surfaces polished looks fantastic.

If I can get it the way I want it, the build will be ready for and going to Toledo...for a theme...But that's all I'll say I hope to paint or primer it today, I will see how the bare plastic is...we shall see (The plastic is not white so I am not sure which way I will go)
LOL @ Joe...Sharpie through an airbrush

Of coarse you can skip the tint band section if you like.

If I ever get an airbrush though, I'm definitly going to copy your work, for sure!!
