    I'm just trying to figure out how using retarder for me doesn't cause any issues clear coating the same day. My auto isn't two part it's 4:1. I don't believe Frank uses a sealer before applying his colors. Could that be it?

    Another thing for practice, if you get the chance, create your half fish for practicing on. I have taken the skins from fish glue them on to a piece of to to practice airbrushing on. Later you can either white out or just use thinner to remove the paint to start over. or you can mold a side from a replica and create another side, for your practice fish.
