Hello everyone,

I am in the process of painting a P1 bio to look like the Big red predator in Batman Deadend.I am currently applying the red paint and have thought of a couple questions.First has anyone ever smoothed out the paint with either 600-800 sandpaper after the final clear coat is applied?And second question,which clearcoat do most people use,glossy or matte for the red bio?I am using createx airbrush paints.

Thanks Daren

I can only chime in on sanding paint as it goes with cars and such. I "wetsand" the paint and then the clearcoat after if there are runs, swirls or other defects that I want to remove. I'm guessing since you don't want a bio all that shiny it would not be needed unless you had defects to fix. I wetsand with 1000 grit or higher and often with a clay bar.

i use Krylon, in, and on my airbrush paints, acrylics, etc. i love the stuff!! nice hard coating, or in the paint it seams to make it stay a lot better. and make it stronger. JSYK.
