The first time I did my glock, I noticed that it glooped very badly and I had to go with a quicker sweeping spray and do 2 coats. The second time around with this paintjob I just did, I found primer really did the trick for me on this one. A little bit of fibre mold in the erosion and then some sanding would fix it up a little and then sanding off old paintjob laying down a coat of primer before redoing it and you probly wouldnt even notice. I noticed a little bit of erosion on the thread of that item as well, is that gooped up paint or is that melted plastic?

It can be because your friend sprayed from too close. The propellant used in spray paint is very corrosive to some plastics.

That is why I always airbrush my guns... only air and paint... Plus, I use Tamiya flat model color set. They have all kind of colors to it.

Finish with a clear coat of Krylon flat clear. (Yes they do it, it really flat out any surface)

As far as the krylon eating the paint, not sure why it would do that but I used the same stuff and it seems alright. However after looking, the newer paint appears to have "plastic fusion" so im assuming it's more plastic safe. I wish i'd known about the new stuff before I did it but oh well. I wonder if there is some kind of like bondo for plastic you could use to fill it in and paint over.

I may have to swing by Crappy Tire on the way home from work and pick up a couple of these sets of paint if they truly are discontinuing them. I want to paint the furniture on my springer M4 (that's used as a decorative piece for my recording studio wall) as well as paint the front grilles on my guitar and bass amplifiers in camo.

Well, I came home tonight with one can in each color. You guys are gonna have me spending money left right and centre with these discoveries of yours.

And even moreso once I get age-verified and can get into the classified areas. It will end up with me in bankruptcy...

matte krylon primer

The krylon on my 416 is showing no ware at all- except where I painted over my DE magpul pistol grip, where it is rubbing off. I notice that when i painted the grip, I probably didnt let it dry long enough in between coats and put it on too thick, resulting in several spots on the grip that felt tacky even after the full 7 days, and which could be easily scratched off by a fingernail. If I had done a perfect job with the krylon camo, would it have scratched off, or stayed on permanently?- and even if I had followed protocol, would I stil need to coat it with a primer to secure the krylon base? (you mentioned Workable Fixatif , but that's for art? - do the matte krylon primers hold up?
