I have been having a lot of trouble applying clear coat. It is something i have never done before and I'm going insane. I am an airbrusher but have always paid someone to clear my work. For some mad reason I decided to start clearing them myself and I just can't get it right.
I can't seem to find the right balance. It's either to much and sags, so I rub it back and clear it again. Or it is spraying on dry. Now I have both and no sanity.
I have checked all the air pressures and mix ratio is correct. I'm just sick of going over it again and again. Yes I am using acrylic paints.
Is there a x grit sandpaper I can use to eliminate both the dry finish and the sag?
Now you know why I paid someone to do it for me.
When you apply any coating be sure to apply your first coat wet enough to flow but not so wet as to run. ALLOW THE FIRST COAT TO DRY TO THE TOUCH BEFORE APPLYING YOUR SECOND AND THIRD. If you allow this first coat to dry to the touch your next coats can be applied a little more wet and won't run as easily.
