    solo plastic cups and spray paining

    I used the top of a solo plastic cup on one of my fett pieces.
    Heres the problem: I primed it (fine), put a coat of aluminum down (fine), then put the final coat on (white). When I put the white on - the original color of the cup started showing through (red) and it doesnt look like the paint will dry!!!!
    What gives????
    The first two coats went on fine!! And I let them cure!
    AAARRRRGGGGHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Sounds like you had a paint reaction of some kind, Did you mix paint brands, like using brand foor the primer, and brand b or c for the other colors?? This can happen when different paint brands are used togehter. Some don't like each other and bad things happen.
