What has worked for me to avoid pooling is to turn my pressure up to 25-30 psi, and spray from about 10 inches away or so. And keep it moving!!

Some people even dip the parts in it. A guy on the SA board did a tutorial how to.

Can you apply Future over everything including bare metal foil? You can apply Future to your windshield and chrome also?

Yes, but there is no reason to clear over BMF.

I just use a foam "brush" to apply it to the parts. Great thing is since there are no bristles, it provides a smooth coat as soon as it's applied.

Does anyone know if future "goes bad"?



Only if hooked on drugs or if growing up in a bad neighborhood.

Actually, it can help 'anchor' BMF - by coating over gaps and overlaps thereby reducing the potential for snags that might peal BMF off.

Perhaps, but I have builds from 14+ years ago, the foil is not coming off at all. Just a simple observation, not trying to argue with you Dan. :D

While I have never tried it, a friend gets remarkable results by dipping his painted bodies in a container of Future.

I airbrush it as a clear coat when I use enamel on armor models. I am partial to using oils as washes so Future protects the enamel, and helps the oils flow into recesses and seams. I let the enamel cure for a week or so, then let the Future cure for a few days.

It makes a good clear parts adhesive, as well as making windshields sparkle.

Decal setting solution will fog Future if is not completely cured. If you polish a paint job with Novus, Future will bead up and be repelled from the surface. :)

YES! recently a bottle of it held -up a convenience store in New York ;) :D


It had been hanging around with model builders and was led astray. Who knows what the kid holds for this poor Future?

Actually, Future makes a pretty good base for Spaz Stix. I've been using Alclad black basecoat until recently. I assume Future would work equally well under Alclad - and it's a lot cheaper and easier to apply than Alclad black basecoat. The thing is, it has a very high gloss, and I'm starting to realize that that's the key to nice looking sprayed-on chrome - IF the chrome will stick to it, which is not the case with a polished/compounded finish.

Asking stupid questions here I guess, but I am pretty new with this Future -thingy, and I have to ask something. I have understood that I can use it to seal for example bigger body customizations etc., stright to the plastic. Then You could be able to primer the body and perhaps sand it and primer it again.

Am I wrong, I just didn't got the thingy working. Paint didn't stay on the waxed body. Quite a frustrating... It might have been the problem on primer too, cheap paints probably ain't the best ones...

But just to ask, am I on right track? I'm searching a way to keep the shaved handles and trims away.

Thanks. :D

Future will seal putty and body work and you can just about any paint over it but I would avoid waterbased acrylics like Tamiya in the bottle as it can crack.

Thanks, I will continue testing different type of primers - that one really wasn't working properly, it was like I would have been painting over the wet soap or something, it just didn't stay on the surface.

I painted my interior tub flat black, then i brushed the console, rear seat and door panels with future. I thought this gave a realistic look. Not as glossy as gloss paint and a good look for the interior.

Here's where I ask for some help from those who have used Future before, I'm at my wits end with this stuff. I got it tinted nicely, but can't get it applied evenly to save my life.

I tried dipping the windows in it....FAIL

I tried dipping just one side in it....FAIL

I tried brushing it on....FAIL

I tried airbrushing it (6 light mist coats @ 30psi)....FAIL

Here's a picture of what they look like, ignore the little black dots and lines, that's on the lamp base itself. They'll be making a trip into some fresh Future for stripping in a few minutes. I'm going to bash my head into the oak tree in the backyard.... :banghead:
