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.

Avoid using in excessively damp or humid conditions.Finger marks on the bare plastic will appear in the final finish.
Candy Enamel top coats:
Shake thoroughly before use. Do not thin. Apply over Alclad Bright Silver Candy Base. Spray light coat at 20-25PSI. Wait 5 minutes. Apply further even coasts. Allow 5 minutes between each coat. Leave to cure for 2 hours before handling.
