Default Re: Best Rattle Can Paint I Have Found Yet!

The best paint I like is Tamiya Paint. A guy at the r/c track gave me some pointers in rattle can spray painting. I think it might work for other brands as well. He told me to shake the can up pretty good then put it in a bowl of hot water and shake the can in the water. I first thought he was pulling my leg but when I tried it, the mist was stronger and finer. The end result was a much cleaner finish without orange peel. I finished it off with a clear coat using the same procedure. The clear coat helps with chipping and gives it a super finish.
