How To Paint Using A Spray Can




What do you think about this video?

eldo59: Vette from Rush Hour. NICE!

rumax78: horrible music

153masterchief: 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!

153masterchief: 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.

153masterchief: 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?

spencer1984.com: As long as you give the paint plenty of time to dry, and use a low-tack tape (3M's blue painters tape is a good one), you probably won't have any problems. Brush painting works better with darker colors, but if you use a good paint and a good brush you can minimize the stroke marks in lighter colors as well. Good luck on the build!

Rockie soto: I have 1 question that been killing me when i see all of you paint. ya use some kind of object to hold ya car. it look like ur using a brick other use hanger, the question is i never see ya paint the inside of the hood.. don't this get painted? when do u do it..

Alberto Michelatti: What could happen spray painting a model with a temperature of 5 °C? Just wondering.

Reemusfull: Nice tip I working on same way

Rockie soto: good to know i used those .Homedepo .ty..

JOBEgypte: I know this is a very noob question but is this regular spray paint or model spray paint greats from holland

spencer1984.com: It depends a lot on the size & shape of the wings, so I recommend doing a few trials using a large sheet of paper cut to the same shape. That way you can experiment without risking anything important. For a softer fade, you'll want to stand on the same side you're coloring and spray from there; for a more defined edge, you'll want to stand on the opposite side. Stay 12" - 18" back while you spray, use fast/light coats to slowly build up the color, & aim so that half the spray misses the edge

spencer1984.com: You're welcome, glad this was helpful!

WanderleiSilva29: oh ok..... I didn't know if masking tape would take any paint off..... I didn't want to use a brush because I thought the spray paint would look better not having brush strokes in it..... im putting together a basic dukes of hazard car right now and I don't want to paint the entire car inside and out orange because the inside was a tan color..... but I didn't know the best way to do it. Thanks.

spencer1984.com: Building up the paint over several coats helps ensure even coverage and makes it easier to prevent issues like runs and lift. Without seeing pictures of what you describe, my best guess is that the paint is blushing because of high humidity. If that's the case, you can try clearcoating it on a dry day to even out the appearance.

Azahar Purwanto: Well.. need more practice.. nice video :)

Rockie soto: got my answer/

spencer1984.com: The easiest way to remove the paint is to get a plastic tub big enough to hold the model, then fill it with DOT-3 brake fluid. It will strip off the paint without harming the plastic.

spencer1984.com: I usually brush paint the inside of the body - interior color for the headliner, black for the inner fenders, etc. If there is something that should be body color, I'll paint the inside first (using the technique shown here but with the body mounted upside down), flip the car over, then repeat for the outside.
