Polytranspar silver pearl essence

Submitted by Mary Jane on 2/17/02. ( Puddlepadlr@aol.com )

I am just starting to use the Polytranspar series and have finished my painting the fishing lure I started with, it turned out really good. I now want to make the lure have a pearl essence finish so I thought by spraying the whole lure with silver pearl essence it would create the finish I wanted. Will I still be able to see the colors of my lure through the silver pearl essence paint? What will the outcome be? Thanks and I really have learned a great deal by reading this forum.

Depends on......

how heavily you spray. All of the pearl essences should only be MISTED on. If used too heavily will tend to cover undercoats and also give a muddy effect. So in other words mist lightly and you should come out with the effect you want......Have fun!

I agree

lighter is better . the best thing is ...if you screw up you can strip it down and start over.Good Luck

Drier is better.

To get the best reflection and refraction of light. the coat must dry almost immediatly upon hitting the painted object. This allows the binder to hold the metalic particle upright.

Its a fine line between lighter, drier.
