Big things with little cars
Big things with little cars

I want to pick some of your brains about painting techniques. A few weeks ago I tried my first two-tone paint job and it was pretty good. Which leads me to the questions I have.

Who uses primer before they put the color on? Most of the new paints have primer in them. I haven’t in the past because the paint becomes too thick and takes away from the detail.

In terms of painting a cast with stripes or two-tone what are you all using to mask the car? I’m going to make a replica “Big Red” camaro that is red with white racing stripes.

Who uses gloss paint vs a separate clear coat?

I will take any other pointers since I'm still new at this.

And here’s a picture for good measure, photo credit @thebigredcamaro from Instagram.
