The deegan rider foam is so the outside skin of deegan where the red is has a waterproof like resistance to paint not experienced like I had with the vmx rider, so it took a few coats of paint jut to cover it up. Paint is thin so I wish I had an airbrush to really see if that method takes less time and less paint to get good results. So far black is the only color that covers in like 1-2 coats easy without a watercolor look to it, all other colors so far take more coats. Nice thing is it dries fast.
Does the Spectre paint need heat to cure like the Createx? Is Spectre flexible?
