View Full Version : Bleed through when taped off
Well I painted the truck today, I must say so far so good. I have to clear it tomorrow since I ran out of sunlight. But I have some bleed through from the red paint to the white. Is there a simple way to remove the red which was second color sprayed from white, first color sprayed?
Here are some pics..
I know there is some imperfections in the striping but when your working by yourself and this is a 4X4 you cant see both sides at the same time.. It looks alot better then when I got it..
So easy way to get rid of red in the white area?
What kind of base coat paints did you use? I haven't seen bleeding for a while but some inexpensive materials will bleed. The only thing you can do is to seal the white and re-shoot it, if you clear it you're really see the bleeding red and you could possibly cause more bleeding when the clear is applied.
Well I should not say the red bled through the white.. The white was the first color and I did not press the tape down hard enough to cover the white before I shot the red.. How if any way do I get the red off the white?

tape off the red in the affected areas then either dust in some fresh white with a spray gun or if its a very small area do a paint brush touch up.
Ive herd maybe a small paintbrush with painthinner and a quetip to erase the paint. Would that work since the white is just a solid white and not metalic?
Ah ah, red on top of the white is a different story. Depending on several factors you'll either need to remove it or cover it with more white. The first thing I would probably do is to mask the red that is adjacent to the problem and either give a quick wipe with a little thinner or try a light abrasive to remove the problem. If that didn't work I'd remove the mask clean the surface then re-mask, scuff and spray more white over it using a small spotting gun.
When spraying stripes or two tone paint jobs it's usually best to use a plastic "fine line" striping tape so that you avoid this type of problem. Unlike standard paper masking tape the fine line tape cuts a clean smooth line between the colors.
