Stefan Bauman uses untempered hardboard with his Rustoleum Auto Primer Seriously. I found a viddy in which he extols the virtues of Rustoleum for quick, convenient on-site priming for plein-air, then he goes on to recommend untempered hardboard to his students.I use tempered hardboard and don't seal.
Not a problem! I figured you would answer at some point. Absolutely no need to apologize. Thanks for answeringLaika:
Sorry I was out for the rest of the day yesterday. I only have a certain window I can be here, but I was able to see some of the questions from my phone. It was frustrating not to answer. I'm sorry about that.
Everclear is the best solvent for shellac.
I see. I always thought car paint was a kind of enamel. I am wrong then. I do not use enamel paint though. I'm an oil painter. But then again, I wouldn't use an auto body primer for paintings. I'd only use it to prep a car, which I have.FYI
Many of the Auto body spray paints are Lacquer. Sometimes it doesnt react well with enamel (oil base) Lacquer is softer than enamel and softens more over time.
You are not wrong. Some auto spray paint is Lacquer, some is enamel. Must read all labels. It’s not a good idea to spray one type over the other type. The only advantage i see of using spray paint for panels is getting that type of smooth finish easily. It usually does not sink in much unless you use the slower drying enamel type.I see.
