Default Re: Remember Acetylene before Clear?

Back in the day, they would shoot a coat of clear, then float on the soot from the torch onto the wet paint. You would let it dry/cure before adding additional clearcoats. First topcoat is just a very light (and dry) mist coat so as to cover the soot and yet not disturb it. From there it's just a normal sequence.

Best Regards,
