How Many Ounces Of Paint?

Stupid question of the day......I am painting a Iceman body with House of Kolor paint. Ebay is selling 4 ounce sizes. If I use a HVLP gun, do you think 4 ounces will be enough for one body?

Also, how many onces of clear would you suggest?

This my first stab at using an HVLP system, so any help is appreciated

Thanks

Dave

4 ounces sounds a little thin.. better to have to much paint than not enough!

Dave, I will be using Stew Mac Waterbased lacquer and I may try some Auto Air Color's like Maiden used on his gold guitar for my first shot at a solid color. According to LGM he can paint 3 or 4 guitar's with a half pint of base. Here is the link: http://projectguitar.ibforums.com/index.ph...Auto+Air+Colors

Good Luck,

Jeff
