Enamel ClearCoat problems
« on: Today at 10:38:56 am »
Hi everyone -

On several occasions, I'm getting this result:  When spraying gloss enamel clearcoat from a can on an airbrushed acrylic finish - the clearcoat is beading up like water on a newly waxed car.  Can you help with any solutions for my next build, and - how do I get rid of the 'mottled' appearance - will waxing it smooth it out?

I would not use an enamel clear coat over acrylic finishes. 

What (clear coat) product was this?
