Got a little question for you. I was wondering if Tamiya's rattle can paint behaves the same way as the regular glass jar acrylics? Or more specifically, does the rattle can paint dissolve with window cleaner after drying?
I am currently going to do some weathering by base coating with a solvent-based silver spray paint and then applying Tamiya acrylic afterwards. When the Tamiya is dry, I will then go over all the raised edges with a cloth wet with Ajax window cleaner. The Ajax wil dissolve the Tamiya topcoat making the silver base coat (which is not affected by the cleaner) shine through.
Since the object I'm weathering is huge, I'm thinking of getting a couple spray cans instead of using the airbrush, IF the Tamiya spay will react in the same way. (The thing I'm weathering is actually a Ghostbusters Proton Pack but I figured the modeling area has a bigger expert base for Tamiya acrylics.)
Since the spray cans are very expensive around my parts... I just wanted to double-check before shelling out for a few.
I'm also doing some research on Tamiya's site and the web... says it "synthetic laquer", and that they aren't affected by the acrylics, which would seem to suggest that they will not be suitable for my needs, but if anyone here has any real-world experience with them please chime in.
Thanks for any info.
