Question about paint

4 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

Ok this made a friend of mine chuckle, but I have never painted a model white before, usually just a coat of white primer before a deep rich color was applied. I have a kit that I made decals for, and want to paint the kit white. I have heard things both good and bad about white paint and clear coats. So here is my question, what would be the proper clear coat to apply to white paint without having that awful "yellow haze" effect I have heard about? Any info on this good or bad would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Josh

Tamiya TS-26 pure white in a very "white" paint, and I'm pretty sure TS-13 clear doesn't yellow. You'll want to have good lighting when ya spray the white and the clear, it's easy to miss "dry" spots in the paint. Also, if you have access to it, two part urethane clears won't yellow either.

I use automotiv paint and have NO yellowing.

Brian and Mark,
