    One of three things are wrong with that dip. It may have been on the water upside down or more likely, the activator evaporated off before you got it dipped. Also, the basecoat looks awful shiny... Like it was never prepped to accept ink... Hint, hint. The clear gloss coat goes on after the object is dipped and rinsed. :-)

    So my option is to scuff and repaint with matt base?

    What kind of paint did you use? matte and gloss don't have anything to do with it. If the window closed up on it, or it was bad paint it would do that.

    How long after painting it did you do the dip?

    The problem isnt the paint was gloss the problem was the window closed for you to dip to it. Use a paint that was made for this process or find one that is compatible and be within the recoat window

    So the paint already cured too strong to dip it...right?
  • studebakerstudebaker Posts: 3,282Member, Business Ninja ✭✭✭✭✭
    That is correct.

    No. Scuff repaint then dip and clear within the recoat window.

    Scuffing it does nothing to open the window again. If you scuff it, you allow a mechanical bond to form with another layer of paint (gloss or matte doesn't matter) but then you will have to apply the dip AND the clear that you are going to use over it within the recoatability window of the base paint (usually 8-12 hours) Check your TDS's before you use anything in your process, this is how you get burned.
