Molotow pen coverage of different colors
Posted by justmike on Saturday, September 01, 2018 1:02 AM

I am reading a lot about the molotow chrome pens and am curious as to how well it would cover the red pinstriping on the chrome wheels of the '84 Hurst Olds. I don't have one of those pens yet due to lack of hobby stores around here but would get one somehow if I thought it would cover the red color. Can anybody tell me please?

Try Scalehobbyist for the Molotow pen- https://www.scalehobbyist.com/catagories/browse.php?kw=molotow

This is their home page link- Keep in mind the shipping cost, sometimes it makes more sense to make a larger purchase instead of a smaller one

Print a color wheel, let the ink dry, then clear coat it. After the clear dries, use the Molotow pen on the desired color.

This approach can be used with paint as well.

I haven't seen anything it won't cover yet. I've used it over bare styrene and paint. Not the red stripes on the wheels though. Get it. You'll be glad you did.
