You didn't try the Molotow ones yet, then?

Do you think the cracking is because you used a nitro-cellulose sanding sealer and the cans are synthetic?
I just had a quick scout around on google and it seems the nitro-combi and nitro-alkyd formulations are not related to nitrocellulose.
I think for these colours to work you'd need a poly/synthetic sealer and primer (like fullerplast?). The old nitro-over-poly but not poly-over-nitro problem.

I guess that's the problem. I have so many things to do at the moment I hardly find the time to get it sorted out. Another strange thing is, i sprayed some of the stuff onto plastic, and it just comes loose like nothing I've ever seen.

Oh sorry I overlooked  this post... no, not yet. I had the other stuff sitting around already, so I didn't bother ordering the Molotows yet.

I don't think they'll be any better, to be honest. Certainly not over nc sealer.

I'm afraid you're right. I'll have to let it sit for a while anyway, cause I have almost to no spare time at the mo - maybe it'll all have flaked off neatly next time I find the time to go into the workshop, and stripping the sealer will be a cakewalk.

;D

okay went over the orange with 1000 grit last night. looks decent. some real minor dings and scratches from handling - will the clearoat make these less or even more visible? really don't feel like shooting any more orange again.

:-\

With a well done clear coat job (3 layers/drying/wetsanding/3 layers/drying/wetsanding...until you're satisfied) will make the scratches/dings disappear.

...but wouldn't it be nice with "orange peel" feel to the colour you've choosen?  ;D

BTW:  KOYL - I hope that isn't you in that youtube vid - crazy MF's!  :o
Someone knows where I can find the nearest woodchipper to throw my pieces of junk into?

;D  No it's not me !  Do I sound as crazy as this ??  :-\  :D
What's amaze me in this video is the guy only realize he risked his life afterward..  :o  I guess it would not have been a ig loss if the shooter had missed the target: the guy already has no brain.  ::)

Jesus. I have a bow like this and i'm pretty sure an arrow shot from such a distance would easily penetrate your skull. we only shoot at politician's election posters - which is a lot of fun, actually.

that eases my mind a bit - i might start clearcoating tonight, depending on how late (if ever) i get out of the office. that clear nitro is really great to work with.

orange peel: when in my age, you've see enough of it already  :(

I spoke to a luthier last weekend who uses the Molotows to good results. He just pries the cans open and fills the lacquer in his spray gun. I think I'll let him do the paint job on the korina body.

It's still better to see this than to see no orange at all...  :D
