I am painting with NASON Ful-thane which was recommended to me for flat colors from my paint store. I have tried flattening clear, with terrible results every time. I mean I can make it happen, but I am never satisfied with the results. Too glossy sometimes, to dusty ect. I've also spent almost 100 bucks on a "flat" Emron system. No dice. Takes like 8 dang days to dry. My goodness.
I'm needing these out like today and thinking of just putting a primer or solid black base with hardener (over tacky thane) to flatten. I shouldn't have to ghetto this out just to make it flat. What gives? Any suggestions?
nason ful-thane isn't made for flattening, use something like dupont centari or emron. when using emron use the accelerator in it so it will dry and also only use 1 coat 1 and 1/2 at most. you can get either in any gloss level you want. anytime using a color with low gloss level leave plenty of flash time in between coats. rushing the paint will only cause the gloss level to be higher.
