Clear coat question

1880 Views 16 Replies 12 Participants Last post by  ListerStorm
I am in the process of doing a custom Fly Lister Storm. I used Tamiya paint and put on the water slide decals last night. How long do I need to wait until its safe to spray the Tamiya clear on it? I have heard some people had problem of the decals getting ruined when they put on the clear coat.

Thanks for any help.

I have had problems over the years with various clear coats dislikeing various paints and decals. Once had a nighmere on doing a Marconi car, last day I could send it, only to find that the model master top coat had decided to attack the Model master PAINTS.

Why fuss. I saw you are in the U.S. "Future" floor "was" is a clear acrylic gloss coat and like most acrylics is intert with EVERYTHING. sprays through my ink tip. cleans up with water.


It is a misnomer to call what we use "floor wax" it is not a wax of any sort!

It is your wife spreading a clear acrylic paint on the floor.
Or you on the car body.

With the "proper" top coats, I got tired of trying to mentally keep track of which combinations of paint and decals needed which approach, which could be sprayed, which had to be "dusted" and so on. With the floor acrylic, I just go SPRAY and done. No fuss.
