candy₂O are intense. 4 – 6 medium wet coats are recommended for full color saturation. Allow each coat to air dry tack free prior; approximately 10 minutes flash-time in between coats when painting in non-humid, temperate conditions around 70 deg. F. Adjust drying times in humid or colder conditions. candy₂O work with a wide variety of spray-gun and airbrushes. The following specs are recommended as a starting point. As always, achieving a finely atomized spray pattern is the goal. When using a spray-gun, mixing candy₂O 1:1 4030 Balancing Clear allows for best application to achieve an even color-build without mottling.
- spray-gun: 1.1 – 1.2mm tip, 26 – 29 psi
- mini-gun: 0.8 – 1.0mm, 26 – 29 psi
- airbrush: 0.18 – 0.5mm, generally add 25 – 50% 4030 Balancing Clear and reduce as needed with mixing with 4012 High Performance Reducer.
Apply 4040 Bleed Checker over candy₂O to prevent bleeding (leaching of dyes) into top-coated colors. After 4040 has thoroughly dried (30 – 60 minutes), other colors including subsequent candy₂O colors may be applied direct without scuffing.
