Liquid Print paint

TroubleTrouble Posts: 265Member ✭✭✭
Has anyone used Liquid print paint? I have their Cleaners, Adhesion promoter, 2 K primer and water base paint. I could not find anything in the search bar about their paint and was wanting to make sure I got the procedure down before painting. I am assuming plastics would be prep, and adhesion promoter then base and metals would be prep DTM primer than base. I plan on sticking with OHW for my clear because it works for me. Reason for swap is I really want to try water base. I currently use OHW for most of my dips and Nason if I need a special color.
Thanks

    It's Aqualac relabeled. Great paint and all we use. Their adhesion promoter FlexiGrip is good, just a little pricey. Brutal Hydrographics is also selling Aqualac, but not relabeled and they will have Prime Coatings adhesion promoter soon also.

    What's genera rule on thinning of the Aqualac paint ?

    @ARQHYDRO You can thin it a little with water, but it varies by color so there is no formula. And at some point it will be too thin and will not adhere or cure... So it's up to you to test.

    Crank the pressure. I've sprayed it out of a 1.3. A 0.8 is very small for water based, but give it a try. Don't be afraid to get up to even 50lbs. I shoot it at 30-40 out of my 1.5.

    Yes, distilled water is best. No reason to get all "French" with it. Just keep it simple.
