Hey guys, ive painted a few bodies over the years and just wanted to see what your opinion is.
How many coats of paint do YOU put on
what do YOU set your compressor pressure at
and do YOU water down water based paint a little

Default RE: some questions

1. I put on 2-3 if it is a solid color, I like using fasluscent paint ,one coat and backing with chrome... So it all depends what color you want.

2. I use compressed CO2, but I typically set it to anywhere between as low as 8psi to 35ish really depends on what I am painting and how thin the paint is...... Everyone has a different painting style, you should adjust the pressure to your style, paint used, and detail level.

3. I have not had to thin water based paint yet, I use Parma and Spaz-stix.
