RCGroups RC Car Quick Tips - Improve results with spray paint cans

A simple trick to ensure a great-looking paint job when using rattle cans.


This one extra step will produce better results when painting with spray paint cans.

Besides only shaking a spray paint can before you paint a body, you should also warm-up the can. Simply run the rattle can under warm water, not hot water, for a few minutes. You can also place the spray paint can in a bowl of warm water while you get the body ready for paint. Dry off the can and do a test spray on a piece of paper to ensure the paint is spraying properly. You should notice that the paint coming out of the can is much finer than if you were using a can that was not warmed-up.

Whether you are painting plastic or polycarbonate, they have you covered. They also offer acrylic bottled paint for airbrushing or using a paint brush along with airbrushes and any accessories you need to get the job done. [/B]
