Spray paint or Auto paint?

Recommended Posts

I used Krylon Colormaster spray paint to do the gloss white for my helmet. It went on pretty well once I got closer to it. Dries in 10 minutes or less. Works really well in my experience, i'm sure the other colors work just as well.

Sand with 400 grit, clean with detergent not alcohol, prime, paint. Abs will take paint fine if prepped.


Auto paints used to be chemical or lacquer based, but the industry moved to water based for environmental reasons.


Prep is the key as is temperature and humidity. Crappy prep = crappy paint.
