Well, I have a bottle left here, but hesitant to use it again as when I used alclad on a t bucket I was building, when I went to put the suspension on it, the Alclad wore off. Three times I have resprayed it only for the same thing to happen. Itg discouraged me soo much, then I boxed the model and all it needs is the suspension finished!! LOL. Jody
Try spraying your black, wait an hour, then shoot your Alclad.
The Alclad needs To "BITE" into the paint before it's totally dry, so it won't wear off as easily when you can handle it.
Also, what guy's don't take seriously enough, is that to get the optimum results, at least for me, they are certain steps that need to be followed.
(1) Spray a like-brand clear over your black. This gives depth for the chrome to 'DAZZLE"
"LIGHT REFRACTION" plays a huge role in the finished appearance of Alclad type finishes (There are others).
A diamond sparkles because it had depth and clarity - same with Alclad when you use clear, and it's GLOSSY.
Same with candies and metal-flakes. I always clear over the candy base color of silver or gold, or the flake, before I shoot the color - GIVES WAY MORE DAZZLE
. Allows the light to bounce around in the clear before it reflects back to your eye.
Alclad LOVES WARMTH
I shoot mine at 80 degrees and it can be handled really well in an hour. Brush the fine particles off with a fine make-up brush for a much nicer finished appearance.
If you can't shoot yours at that temp, try using a food dehydrator if you have one, or wait a minimum of a week to dry before handling - IT MUST BE DRY, AND IT NEEDS THAT INITIAL BITE not to wear off easily - GOTTA HAVE BOTH
