Just a quick question if anyone has had experience using Reefer Yellow as per the RS colour list in the helmet thread? I was trying to paint my shoulder bells last night and noticed that the paint (at least my bottle) was very thin.
I used up 1/4 ounce (plus thinner) painting one bell and you can still see the chrome underneath. I was spraying it on evenly and light to prevent runs. It looks like it will take at least another 1/4 ounce + thinner.
This seems like a lot to me. Especially since the US Med Green went on a lot nicer. I mean I painted everything but my backplate with 3/4 ounce + distilled water.
I was wondering if this colour is just that thin and it will take that much paint or maybe I got a bad patch. I was thinking of not even thinning the paint for the second coat but I am not even sure that will help out much.
Thanks in advance!
