weathering question
Posted by Anonymous on Sunday, March 9, 2003 9:06 AM
I have my loco and rolling stock all weathered using
acrylics and would like to know if it is necessary
to overspray them with say Testors Dullcote? I don't handle them a lot and so far nothing has chipped off.
If necessary to spray them how many coats should I use? Would one light application be enough?
Thanks Bob

I use acrylics too and so far they have held up very good with just one exception, HANDRAILS! Acrylic paint is pretty tough stuff. But on handrails, that's another story. So I try not to touch the handrails, they paint chips off easily. I tried to use hot water to remove acrylic paint on the side of a loco and it wouldn't come off, only gets dull. I think you'll be fine.
