Two questions...I`m just wondering how you guys clear end enamel after ~ doing a swirl? I must know prior to I decide what paints to use. So much I`m thinking Testors, however I also have some Tremclad blended to the colour that ns like and it worked well on part test pieces.If ns cant clear end oil basic enamel such together these paints, perform automotive paints work to swirl? I know I wont have trouble v the clear this way. Or is there an additional option because that clear various other than automotive? Three questions i guess...Thanks! Chops.
Well, the general ascendancy is to enhance the kind of clearcoat to the form of finish. For this reason if you"ve supplied enamel paint, acquire a clean gloss enamel. Simple, right, or am I absent something?PeaceMike

Cool, I found some oil base clear last night, Tremclad, ns didn`t even know there was such a thing. It`s in a rattle have the right to tho, I`d rather run that thru a gun....Thanks Mike!Chops
You can use a 2k poly clear, make certain you lightly dust the first few coats on, leave about 10 - 15 min in between coats. As soon as its spanned then you deserve to start caking it on.

Wow if i can gain mine to revolve out this nice through Krylon, it could be precious a shot!!!Check out the picture of the blue one.http://www.dearteassociazione.org/forums/f21/uv-top-coat-117291.html?highlight=DIY+painting

that would certainly be mine LOL, and Krylon blend is the bomb just dust the first few coats then her all clean for building it up, ns use around 3 cans because that a guitar body
Too funny! Well thanks for that! 3 cans is about what ns figured. An excellent job man! I`ll be using Humbrol because that my swirl, with the Krylon blend work for this?Thanks!
I i will not ~ throw any Clear on Enamel if it was less than 12 months old.Fully cured Enamel can be cleared with ACRYLIC only.Thanks.
not true at all, girlfriend can also clear with Lacquer. Just gained to mist the first few coats. Painters pointer L. E. A.Lacquer Enamel Acrylicyou deserve to put Lacquer on Enamel with no issuesyou have the right to put Lacquer top top Enamel and Acrylic v no issuesyou cant placed Acrylic or Enamel ~ above Lacquer etc ideal tip anyone has ever before given me. LEA mental it..
I have actually thrown Acrylic Lacquer over fully cured Enamel for over 20 years.Not one single reaction.Like the idea that the LEA though.
I"m resurrecting this thread because I"m acquiring ready to traction the trigger and finally attempt a guitar construct this summer. I consult the google because that research, and also where walk it suggest me? Right ago here, where I may have actually just reply my very own question concerning enamel paints . . . Two years ago. Turns out if you search for "enamel paint guitar," well, below we room on the very first page of outcomes returned by google. Laughing and shaking my head at the irony.
I do the efforts to perform a swirl v Testor paint an it didn"t work. After, i went ~ above the internetz and found the Testors room not recommended because that swirls.

Testors room crap because that swirls... Humbrols work-related pretty well, One shot Flouros occupational pretty good, however you"ll have to experiment with every little thing you chose. Execute not use Krylon combination clear it looks an excellent going on and for a small while after, yet the 2 guitars i cleared v it began to flake and crack after about 6 months...If you don"t have actually a gun Spraymax 2k clean is what you want and also 2 cans will build enough for a swirl to come out flat. It have the right to be a small pricey, yet if you want an excellent end outcomes don"t try to skimp out...
I don"t desire to execute a swirl; I want to mask off locations with tape and use some spray repaint to create a graphics image. I offered Testors enamels to develop models the cars, ships, rockets, etc. When I to be a boy. I"ve obtained beautiful glossy results with your products. Researching my task I"ve come throughout lots of people saying that enamel take away forever to cure. But like i said, painting my models didn"t give me that experience. As soon as a coat dried (couple of hours to days depending on temp. And humidity), it to be hard and ready to it is in sanded and also accept the following coat. For this reason my experience with this paint on models isn"t what others are reporting on their project guitars and also I"m scratching mine head.

It has nothing to carry out with curing, it"s the it runs and also gobs up when you use it to swirl with. That"s various than to brush it on, if you desire to usage it for what you"re talking about, there"s no factor why friend can"t use it and also then clear end it through a an excellent 2k clear...
