Thank you doc. It's 4oz cloth from the Ding All repair kit. The bristles on my brush...some hairs actually fell off/got stuck onto the resin while laminating and hot coating; this made me think the small chip brush is not the right kind. Speaking of that, the white (noted from previous advice) rag I used also seems wrong - with some acetone dipped and applying it on the board, some threads fell out and stuck to the board as well.
Anyways... guess I'll get to work tomorrow. (And maybe go buy suitable rags and brushes)
Okay, there is an old painters' trick I use with the chip brushes, or any finish brush for that matter, including paintbrushes. Get a cheap pocket comb, one of those 25 cent deals, that has both coarse and fine halves to it. Use first the coarse and then the fine halves on said brush, that gets a lot of the loose bristles.
Hmmm- haven't really had that sort of problem with the rags. I use the bags of rags in white I get from the hardware store, usually the knit cotton T-shirt material, they come in 1 lb and 5 lb sizes., If you get one that feels funny and might shed threads, use it for checking your oil or whatever. Said rags also make good Covid mask material, handy to have these days. Also, avoid using the edge of the rag on stuff, or scrubbing real hard, you can pull threads loose there. Just fold it and you'll be fine.
hope that;'s of use
Sand it down, clean with acetone and use bondo for that particular shatter...
Here you go..all in pictures. How I do it:
prep, fill, shape, spray, glass, sand, gloss, polish...boom done
Not to derail the thread, but what did you use to color match Resinhead? It looks pretty, flawless, and unnoticable.
Liquitex paint...a little cadium red, and burnt orange, usually turns out slightly darker than original color, but fades faster than original. Throw it in a 2 stage touch up gun. just fog it on in 4-5 micro coats.
Thanks! That is more detail than I was expecting. I was just curious if you painted it or tinted the resin.
