    Paint Help Please!!!

    Calling all Fetters. I am a little overwhelmed by the site in trying to find a somewhat cohesive opinion on paints. It seems everyone does it a little different, but I have read some threads that are real horror stories when it comes to paints not working well with their chosen material. I have constructed Armor using the "Trash Can Method" and in reading I have thought that the Krylon route is best. Is this correct? Is there a place on the TDH that has a paint list that I missed? And finally, if the Krylon route is best, is there a primer made by the same company or one that will work with the product? Thanks in advance for any help, you guys are awsome!

    Here try this,

    I'm not sure about Krylon, when I made some trash can armor I used Rustoleom paints and they turned out fine. I also used a cheap primer that wasnt brand name and it turned out fine. I dont think that the primer has much effect, but I wouldn't use 2 or 3 different colors of different brands.

    My best piece of advice is to just cut a small scrap piece from the trash can and paint it like you would the armor and see how it reacts. Good luck!
