Alumaluster question


New Hunter
Few quick questions for those using alumaluster. I'm getting ready to order some and wondering how much to get to paint a helmet and a set of armour. Also what black base are people using, enamel or lacquer? Or does it really matter. And one more question does 2k clear work over alumaluster? From what i have read it looks like gloss black base, alumaluster and couple coats of 2K. Any guidance would be appreciated. I do a lot painting and just have never messed with this stuff. Have had good luck with alcad but want to give this a try.
