    What kind of sandpaper works well with acrylic paint?(ex. 1000g)

    How hard should I rub the paint?

    Does wet sanding give a better end product when sanding paint that's been airbrushed or hand painted?

    Thanks in advance.

    Wet sanding is normally done on a paint coat, not plastic.
    Sanding isnt really the best term to use as the goal is to scuff the paint NOT sand it.
    Check out my basic spray paint tut. for more :D

    Well, I know you do it on a paint coat, but it just came out wrong on the thread.

    I've also detailed this topic during the interview for "Featured Radicon of the Month". I'll hopefully be posting more about this soon as well. :thumb
