I hope it's ok to ask about gundam customizing here. In the end it will help me do custom tfs. Either way, just last week decided to get into painting my gunpla(been gunpla-ing for about a year). I decided to start with some spray paints. I grabbed one of the kits that I would be OK with messing up. I bought these: Rustoleum Ultra Cover White and Gray Primer Krylon Sun Yellow, True Blue, Banner Red, Matte Finish, Brilliant Silver, Clear Gloss The fig I used was an old 144 HY-GOGG(not HGUC). I used the white primer and it was good. everything looked smooth and nice. Afterwards, I choose the color I was going to be using and applied it. Again, everything looked good. I loved the bright red it turned out. I let it dry and later applied a gloss coat as advised since I was going to try and panel line. Here is where I got snagged a bit. I gloss coated....how long should I have waited for the coat and was one pass to each piece good enough? The kit looked super shiny and bright colored as can be, but what is the time frame I should give it before going in with the marker or pen? I would have wanted to use the "lighter fluid" method, but I have not been able to find one damn bottle of lighter fluid. Anyway, I paneled the kit. My next question is, can i go in and detail in this step of the process? I went ahead and proceeded with it. After I was done, I put it on a shelf and went to bed. Woke up today and put the final top coat. Was I right in using the matte finish? I spayed it a bit farther than I did with the paint. Somehow it came out bad. After applying the coat, after letting it sit a while, I went to go check on it....it looked like someone had thrown dust on it. I touched it and it felt rough. What happened? I am just trying to get the steps clear. Like I said, I used a kit I would not miss so no biggie there. I'm doing and HG 100 Aegis Gundam next and would like to get the steps right. TLDR Version 1. Are the products I bought for painting ok? 2. How long in between spraying? Priming, how long to let it sit, Paint how long, gloss coat how long? 3. Final top coat: is matte not a good top coat? why did my kit feel rough and dusty? 4. How can I use the Brilliant Silver? Do parts need priming for it also? What is the correct way to apply it to a white part and to black part? Additional details: it is always hot here. there is some wind sometimes. I did the spraying from like 11am until about 6 which is when sun starts coming down. It can be just a tiny humid in the early morning, which is why I wait till midday. I'm sorry for babbling.
