Apply one of these primers before using High Shine ALCLAD: - ALCLAD GLOSS BLACK BASE ALC-304/305 - ALCLAD CLEAR BASE ALC-303
(Other hobby enamel paints are suitable-it is advisable to conduct a test on scrap plastic)
PREPARATION AND SPRAYING The surfaces to be painted must be thoroughly clean and free from dust,grease,oil and finger marks.
Apply the correct primer for the type of Alclad being used.
ALCLAD should be sprayed at 12-15psi. Spray from a distance of 2-3 inches from the surface being painted using a narrow to medium width spray fan. Use the airbrush like a paint brush-aim to cover the model in a methodical manner. Buffing is not necessary-tonal variation can be made by polishing selected panels with Micromesh.
REGULAR ALCLAD can be masked over and painted. Decal solutions can be used with REGULAR ALCLAD, but are not recommended for HIGH SHINE ALCLAD
The PRISMATIC finishes require a dark base coat-use ALCLAD GLOSS BLACK BASE. Apply 2-3 light coats. When completely dry finish with 2-3 coats of ALCLAD CLEAR BASE. ALCLAD HOLOMATIC SPECTRAL CHROME should be applied over ALCLAD GLOSS BLACK BASE. Apply 1-2 light coats. When completely dry finish with 2-3 coats of WATER BASED CLEAR.
NOTE: Due to its Highly Flammable purpose, all alclad products can only be shipped within Australia. Thanks for your understanding.
