The problems with small lines are normally from paint drying on the tip and not the paint being too thick. You can thin it out a little with water for fine lines bit to keep the paint from drying on the tip you have to get some retarder from the local craft store. Michaels sells Createx retarder that will work.

No Createx doesnt stick to lexan but the retarder will work with the Parma paint.

I forget the gentlemans name but he wrote a book for RCCA awhile ago on painting bodies. He told me to use 2 tablespoons of windshield washer fluid. That's what i've been using.

I use a Createx on the main field of my paint scheme and after dozens of bodies I have never noticed that is will not stick. I am using Createx Auto Air. Should I stop?

Parma - I tried the windshield fluid because my airbrush was clogging, even with water. Since i started using the fluid... no more problems. I just use the cheap blue stuff that you see everywhere and is already in your garage probably.

Hey guys I just bought some Createx Transparent Ultramarine Blue, Iridescent Electric Blue and Fluorescent Green. What color do you suggest I back them with on lexan??White, Silver ??? And what psi should I spray each of them at.

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks

I backed the transparent and iridescent with silver but I don't think the iridescent needed backing. The fluorescent was backed with white. I sprayed at 40 lbs. through an Iwata Eclipse brush
