Hello Fellow fans,

I have a question in regards to Createx clear coat.I recently finished a Predator Bio helmet,and finished it with 2 coats of matte clear coat.After awhile now I have gotten tired of the paint job and want to do a different design.Can I just paint over the clear coat or do I have to sand it down first?

Thanks Daren

I would just go over it with a scotch brite pad to just break the smooth surface. Then a coat of primer then paint. Thats me though. I try and have a good base to paint from.

Depending on how much paint you applied. You can try and get soap and wash it all off.

GET AS MUCH OFF AS YOU CAN. Then, get a primer (i prefer black) and give it a nice one or two coats.

Then start painting again like you did.

Ah, you've already got it primered, but I'll go ahead and throw this in.

Generally, depending on the basecoat - Silver, Gold, what have you, I try to find a primer that matches it. Gray for Silver, Brown for Gold, and so on. Black works well too. I believe that the primer effects the topcoat somewhat.
