I'm trying to clarify some things with paints. On the Ironhide I custom painted I used POLLY Scale acrylics. These paints came in little glass jars, just like most model paints. They worked fine, though the seemed to be a bit thin. I then sprayed him with Krylon Acrylic Crystal Clear Satin. He came out just fine. Well, I then decided to repaint Breakaway. A poster on another forum said he's been customizing for years and uses the Folk Art paints from Wal-Mart. So, I picked up some very cool acrylic metallic paints. Painted him a beatuiful metallic blue. However, when I sprayed him with the Krylon (gloss this time), the blue paint began to thin out. In fact, his camo design started to show through! Now, my questions are simple. Where did I go wrong? Should I have used a different clear coat? Can I repaint the blue? Should I toss the Folk Art paints and buy new ones? I want to find out before I start on Mudflap, since I am planning on a radically different paint scheme for him. I hope someone can help.
