Using intercoat

When using intercoat (either from BB or OHW), your suppose to scuff first, yes?

But, what if your putting it onto a dip? Are you suppose to scuff the dip????

Wont' that miss up the dip?

    You can shoot intercoat over the dip. Do not scuff the dip.

    Correct

    It is a good idea to make sure the paint below the dip is still withing its recoat window. Although the process of dipping tends to help extend that a bit. And if you are using all OHW products, that shouldn't be an issue.

    Thanks

    I use only BB and OHW paints.

    OHW will remain open for your intercoat

    So on that topic

    Say I painted and dipped something.

    then wanted to add a second pattern to the object.. but only in parts of it. And I wanted the base coat different.

    I could simply mask off the area I did not want affected and paint away?

    Yep! Put a coat of intercoat down first to protect the dip

    ALWAYS put some sort of clear down between layers... If it messes up one time, you are going to be glad you did it
