... I was having trouble with all the custom films having a crackled or an under activated spotty look, but it seemed like I just could not get more activator on them without over doing it and ruining the dip.
So before I bothered you all with my problems, I figured I would try to troubleshoot a bit first, and also use OHW paint and SuperBrew.
What I found was that changing my base from spray paint to OHW got rid of the crackled look, but it was then giving me the under activated spotty look (shown in photo on the left). It was better, but still not quite right.
So then I tried the SuperBrew instead of the "other stuff" that I was using...I could immediately see a BIG difference on my first hit!!! No crackles, no major spots, and colors seemed much more vivid. I figured that maybe it was a fluke so I kept going with the OHW and SB combo, and every single hit turned out great!
If you look closely at the hit on the right, I think that I am still just a tad bit under activated, so I need to slow down my passes just a little more and see how it goes.
But so far, so good...
