Well I'm gald I'm not the only one that has wondered this before. At least I know that I'm on the right track it sounds.

When I'm ready, I'll be using Barry's perfect paint prodeedure. I already ordered all the paint supplies from SPI and they should be here anyday.

Amen to that. Friends ask me how I know the steps of the paint procedure [notice I didn't write that I know how to paint, lol], I tell them "the internet", they laugh but I don't care!

I've got to say, info on techniques and basics like Milo posted, really help beginners out. I really don't know a lot about painting but the type of info that he posted is really what I like to find when I'm trying to do anything for the first time. I bet I've put 5 gallons of cheap enamel home depot paint through my purple harbor freight gun just practicing. I've painted cardboard boxes, the mailbox, uhh the trashcan, and about 1000 other things I didn't actually mean too. Thanks for the advice Milo.
