How To Paint Using A Spray Can




What do you think about this video?

Rxfinity: if theres no places near me that sell tamiya paint at any auto store or store that sells spray paint could i use them, what would i have to buy 

zerpBot: How long should I wait for the clear coat? Can I apply matte clear coat over glossy paint?

BritishRail60062: Nice work! I was under the impression that you have to wait for 12-24 hours between each coat as that is how I painted my Hudson Hornet model using their TS-51 paint :).

adrian green: doesnt the spray can have to be held closer to the body to prevent oranepeel?

Cloud Seeker: Please help me out, need help with repainting

Siko Zick: The paint work in metal ? 

Cameron Jones: The body looked warped a little. Or I'm suffering from deliamia!

MegaDragonMinecraft: does tamiya spray paints have the flakes in it? some of your models show it, and it looks very nice! if theres different types of tamiya spray paints which ones have flakes and which ones are normal paints? thanks!

Yao T.: hey Spencer, what kind of CLear Coat in Tamiya range do u recommend? Is it too late if I apply it now since I have got decals on the model now. THX! nice and clear video btw!!!

Habib Ahmed: Im new to making model cars and i'm wondering how to spray paint cars without getting dust on them

gabber apple: HD

Nathan Wells: How much time do you wait between the coats?

addicted2modeling: I used your method on my 99 Silverado custom pickup model kit and it came out really good! I did some polishing with the Meguiar's Ultimate compound and it brought out the highest gloss possible and that's without clearcoat. I will use clearcoat because I have decals and some masking to do to sand off the body moldings and paint them flat black.

rumax78: horrible music

roofka3: Very helpfull tutorial. THX. Great job! If you like 1/24 scale cars feel free to watch snoopix tv channel on youtube. Over 300 car miniatures.

eldo59: Vette from Rush Hour. NICE!

AnotherDHSAgent: I JUST SCREWED UP BIG TIME SPRAY PAINTING MY SHERMAN, NOW I'M HERE......

kevinmosleyI: Nice vid- I learned a few things! The models look great! Could you tell me the song name?

John Peter: Tried the technique you recommended and it worked great! Thank you! That third step mist coat is the key-thanks again!

spencer1984.com: It could be one of a few things: if you are painting a lacquer over an enamel, the lacquer can cause cracks and blisters. Also, if it is too cold when you spray it can cause the paint to craze. Finally, paint has a strange window of opportunity: many of them say to recoat within an hour or after 48 hours (exact times may vary). During the period between those times the paint is setting up, and adding more paint on top of it can cause poor adhesion.

radityainderas: okay. should i spray the clear coat right after wet coat or after the paint had dried?

Krait009: Nice vid with painting techniques

spencer1984.com: Thanks for the suggestion, I'll give it a shot!

AnotherDHSAgent: my buddy learned the hard way of using that technique before on his Panther. But I thank you for your enthusiasm and eagerness to help but I think I will just give it to my nephew or keep it as an expensive reminder that i should be patient and careful with handling paint.

spencer1984.com: I usually try to do it within a few minutes of the wet coat

spencer1984.com: Thanks, guys! bttfspencer - I love the Atomic Orange on the 1:1 Corvette, it's one of my all-time favorite car colors. kevinmosley1 - the intro is "Bass Vibes" and the main song is "Tea Roots," both by Kevin MacLeod

Christopher Wong: i see, i will try my best on the nxt one, thank you so much spencer!

nzspeedwayfan: Hey, nice simple video - thanks. Is your finish smooth enough to not need any form of sanding or polishing?. Is the same method ok to use on metallic finishes as well.?

Reemusfull: very good tip I am working on same way

spencer1984.com: "Wet coat" is the method of spraying the paint - that is, using slower motions than a "mist coat." Ideally, the paint should flow smoothly onto the body and level out during this step.

spencer1984.com: Ouch, what happened?

spencer1984.com: How do you figure? There are no runs or orange peel, and none of the panel lines are obscured.

spencer1984.com: Not at all - glad I could help, and welcome to the hobby!

Rania C: I want to spray paint the edges of wings that I'm using for a costume. But I don't want it to be really dark. Just kinda fading from the colour of the wings to the paint colour. How many layers should I do? And how hard are you supposed to press the nozzle when you spray? I'm worried I'll press too hard and it'll make them too dark. I've never spray painted before and I'm nervous I might ruin my wings.

Kagami11: You spray too much.

spencer1984.com: It depends somewhat on the brand - some seem to require a heavier trigger finger than others. I usually try to use as little pressure as possible to get paint flowing. Yes, I use about the same times for enamels. The final gas-out time is longer, but I usually let bodies sit for a week or more regardless (just to be safe).

spencer1984.com: Thanks! I almost always have to do some amount of wet sanding, even if it's just spot touch-ups. I don't think I had to polish this one, but I usually do...it's become a habit, so the model feels unfinished if I don't give it a quick wipe-down.

bttfspencer: Great video, I've always loved the colour of that Vette'. :)

piano1444: OK who else is sick of that Justin bieber commercial for that spray

jetpack5: You can kill orange peel by placing a small box over your model as soon as your done spraying. The solvents still in the paint will soften up the flash dry skin of the paint and will smooth out again. Just don't leave it too long or you might sag it, or loose paint on sharp corners.

spencer1984.com: I either spray it first and then mask off the windows (a single wide strip of masking tape across the inside of the openings works great), or brush paint it afterwards.

Murphys Luck: Thanks for the video.Keep up the good work!

spencer1984.com: I use this technique for all kinds of spray paint, and it works pretty much the same across the board.

radityainderas: This is exactly what i''m looking for. by the way, what is wet coat? what kind of wet coat did you use? where did you buy one? i believe that tamiya doesn't have one of that isn't it?

spencer1984.com: You don't want to be sanding anywhere near this stage...the surface should already be prepped and smooth before painting, and I usually wait a week or more before wet sanding/polishing.

spencer1984.com: Rustoleum nozzles can be tricky...I'll usually offset the heavier spray by using faster swipes, so less paint makes it to the model. Their primers also usually need some wet sanding before color coats. On the plus side, Rustoleum generally seems to have the best adhesion over unusual surfaces.

AnotherDHSAgent: went too heavy on the primer and the paint, made large uneven bulges on the side skirts and most of the engine compartments.

Christopher Wong: thank you for such informative video, the demo was awesome but one question pls? issit necessary to spray on so many coats? i personally tried tamiya spray can on lego bricks, i only applied ONE layer in ONE shot after the primer dries, which got the job done properly interms of coverage of the whole brick, but the thing is what i get is a smooth feel BUT SANDY looking surface, does doing it the way u demo will help me finish in a smooth surface too? thanks!

spencer1984.com: Thanks! The Batmobile is a modified build of Johnny Lightning's 1/24 1950 diecast.

charles bronsen: What do you do about the inside of the body? Just leave it?
