Hey, I had this question posted in methods and haven't heard yet. (I'm waiting to continue my first paint job, so forgive me if I'm a little antsy.) I've just completed spraying the Rustoleum Aluminium layer on my helmet. Does anyone recommend a clearcoat over the aluminium before I continue my layered rattlecan adventure? A gloss I would assume to keep up the metal look?
My only issue is that my Krylon colors (from the AFFO$ list) appear to be enamels and the clearcoat is acrylic. So if I did it that way, I would have Primer, Aluminium, gloss clearcoat, color, finished with matte clearcoat (or dullcoat) Would this work? or would I be breaking some spraypaint rule that would have my paint eating away at itself? What do you TDH guys recommend?
