Stew Posted July 31, 2006 Report Share Posted July 31, 2006 I'm going to start subbing out some paint work. My artist is used to painting flames and whatnot all over custom cars and hot rods. So he's delt with metal more than wood. I will be present to do some of the prep and in between coats/masking off work. So what could be used for a clear body (clear showing wood)? In other words, some wood grain will be showing in addition to some color coats. Can I just use any of the House of Kolor base paints? Or would I have to shellac first in order to keep the wood showing. Can I use whatever their clear coat product as a base coat, then shoot various layers over that clear coat without a funky finish reaction? Or is all that based on what % of hardener, retard, etc is used for other coats? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
