    Diluted colour

    I am having a few problems with diluted colours. I must be diluting way too much as I don't seem to be getting solid colours on my plastic lures. I like solid bright under body but want a darker light spray on top but very fine so it is semi see through still. I seem to get too milky a finish. Is this due to diluting too much? Do you recommend painting white first, drying it, and then painting colours to get them brighter?

    Clear Epoxy

    I can not find any of these products locally in South Africa and nobody will ship these as they are considered "dangerous goods" Can someone give me the properties of a good clear epoxy so that I can find a local product that can be used successfully with my createx paints. thanks for all your help

Wantitall.co.za: Search Results - devcon 2 ton Can you airbrush or is this a simple paint on with brush application?

    Newbie Crankbait question

    Well do you use vinyl for the base coat or what? I will be using mainly store bough plastic bodies I guess....although lots of you use wood (I can see myself getting addicted to this) Are cranks the wrong thing to start with? I live in South Africa. I tried Upnorthoutdoors.com Stamina components and they supposedly ship internationally but I emailed them and have heard nothing more from them yet
