Leave the basecoat colour for 15/30 minutes before applying clearcoat, then apply 1 mist (tack) coat, after 5/10 mins you can apply further coats (we recommended a minimum of 2 single coats allowing 5-10 mins between each), if required you can build up multiple layer to suit your required level of gloss/shine

Decals : So far we have found that the pre-thinned clearcoat is safe over all major brands of Decals like, Tamiya, Fujimi, Aoshima, Studio 27, Cartograf, Scale Motorsport etc. but please test on cheaper inkjet printed decals first
Always apply light mist coats over decals NEVER go straight on with wet coats, this could melt the decals For more info about Zero paints, please readZero Paints Colour Description.pdf
Please Note: During 2020/2021 Zero Paint has struggled to get the glass bottles they have used years. Now they have swapped to PET plastic bottles after testing. Despite the obvious difference in the visual size, the new and old bottles have exactly the same capacity.
