I experimented with the Spaz Stix brand this time. I used the Candy Yellow (#15259) with the Silver Metallic Color or Candy Backer (#00309).That looks really nice. What brand paints did you use and how did you apply them?
Did you do any surface prep of any kind? I have always used sandpaper or a scotch pad to scuff up the surface before painting.Helpful tip for next time:
I washed the body thoroughly, then trimmed it, and then painted it. Next time I will trim it first, then wash it, and then paint it. I noticed 2 or 3 spots where my fingerprints affected how the paint stuck to the body. Again, my fault, not the fault of the paint.
No, I did not do any surface prep. What are the advantages of scuffing the surface like that?I have been thinking of trying Spax Stix for awhile and, like you, was always using Tamiya and like you, find that one can of Tamiya isn't usually enough. I just don't care for how expensive the paints are for how little you get for either brand.
