Howzit Mr. Clean, I couldn't have said it any better. Aloha, Kokua
So basically you are doin' the bastin' thang fo' the bottom laps when you are hotcoating the deck? I see how I can eliminate some more time by doin it this way. I have been bastin' and letin' it set as one step then hot coating. What you describe is the same baste just using the deck hot coat free brushed under. Did I read that correctly? Any problems with the bottom hot coat and spots that didn't get sanded well.(wax) I guess a good ol' swipe with some "tone will do the trick.
Great tip...Thanks guys (tre hombres) as usual. Good to be back.
I use a piece of Red Scotchbrite to knock the gloss of any shiny spots.Be careful with acetone.If you have a tint bottom it may(or may not) smear the color.Do you know the "sticky side up" trick with masking tape?I'll exhale on it anyway.Hot coated and glossed boards will slide off your racks pretty easily..so just apply some tape with the tacky side up.Holds the board nice and tight.Just remember what you are doing because if you forget and go to glass an airbrushed board the tape will pull the color off.I think we could do a whole thread on just masking tape alone..maybe even an article.Then there is "Masking Tape Golf"...see if you can figure that one out.
Mr cleanlines.., i don´t try to put this issue on discussion again.., in fact i and many peoples do the hot coat process in the same way, but with aerosil (cabosil) in the resin. the fact is that some hot coat resins just contains a minimun amount of this or other "charge"...that´s it
