Re: Finishing metal flake paint
Proper prep...and procedure in sequence......Prep and prime the tank.....sand primer.....prime again, sand primer. Use the base coat without flakes and spray tank, sand, repeat, sand, repeat. Depending on size of flakes, use appropriate nozzle and pressure, spray on flakes....wait until tacky. Make one gallon (or quart) of clear, add one tablespoon of the base color, mix thoroughly. Spray a coat, wait until tacky...repeat...6 times, lightly sand...spray with tint again, 6 times, wait until tacky, 3 coats of clear, sand, clear again, sand, final coat of clear.....when finished I had 20 coats...and it looked like you could reach 2 feet inside to touch the flakes.
