I've started painting my recently molded and dented Sintra armor and I have a few inquiries that I was unable to solve lurking the forums.
- Is it important to paint the inside edges and the backsides of the armor? How much is still exposed when attached to the flak vest? I'm worried that seeing white Sintra behind meticulously painted armor will ruin the illusion. I am also concerned that painting the entire back will be problematic were I to use velcro to attach the armor as the velcro would adhere to the top layer of paint rather than the armor itself.
- The liquid frisket I'm using (liquid mask or masque) says that the frisket should be removed within 24-48 hours of application. Is this applicable for armor? Has anyone had issues removing the liquid mask? I assume that the timetable is only for those using the product on paper for watercolors (the intended purpose).
- Can I layer the mask upon a previous layer of mask after I spray in between the two layers? For example if I were to mask off the silver layer and then spray yellow, could I apply the liquid mask on top of my previous mask and then paint green? Would the mask still come off together? Is it better to remove and then re-apply, masking the same area as before as well as the next neccesary area?
