Straining Paint?

Recommended Posts

also will 1 quart be enought to do color coats and clear?

I haven't used the waterbased stuff, but my guess is you won't be able to get enough good, level film build with just one quart.

I've used nearly two quarts of Behlen's nitro (technically four, since I'm thinning it 1:1, it's not the ready-to-spray instrument lacquer) and I'm just now getting to the last couple of coats (neck and body). Of course, a fair amount (possibly 40-50%) was wasted in experiments and overspray. Learning curve and such. :D

+1 on the strainer, that's exactly what I'm using. Get a couple packs of them.
