Re: Yellow Paint

Hi guys.

Sorry I can't speak from experience on any modern paints, back in the days I
did lot of painting using the early, lacquer bases Floquil and the standard
Scale Coat paints. I never had any problems getting excellent coverage using
Floquil flats finishes but that glossy Scale Coat was another matter
entirely. Light colors including yellows would just run off any sharp edges.
What I eventually learned as a method of applying it was to spray a very
lite base coat, light enough that the paint would not gloss. Yes this was a
bit of a dry coat but with practice it worked well. Then I apply a normal
second coat while the first was still slightly tacky. The course base coat
gave some "tooth" for the second coat the cling to.

Neither do I, especially with Poly Scale white, even on gray plastic. A
several light coats seems to be better than a couple of heavy coats. The
toughest application is ModelFlex in any color.

Are you using a primer/base coat?
Something in a light gray?
