I have a part 7 clear blank I need help with painting. Possible tutorial or advice?
Paint it black front and back. Clearcoat. Then paint the front white. Then use a very light gray wash to darken the front. Add raw umber here and there. Study photos of the real thing and have fun!
I've heard people recommend a Krylon matte finish for the clear coat on a part 7. Would Crystal Clear be too glossy?
Yes, go with Krylon satin clear
