Red Styrene Bleeding Through Primer & Paint HEEELLLPPP!!!
Posted by crzyhorse on Tuesday, February 10, 2004 2:44 PM
Ok I'm havin Trouble here (with a capital T) I'm building an AMT '67 shelby GT500. The kit is molded in red, and the red keeps bleeding through the primer, and paint. not that I would never paint a car pink, but I'd REALLY like this to be white!! I'm using duplicolor primer, and the cheap Wal-mart white paint. I've only ever had this trouble once, with an orange molded kit. I was able to solve it by using a grey metallic Duplicolor paint as a primer, that didn't work this time. I'm at 3 coats of white on the body & it STILL has a pink tinge to it. I could live with it, but it's splotchy & looks terrible

Dag65 is right,Use a primer/SEALER.There is a difference.That is also what you want to use if you build a resin kit.Good luck.

Go down to your local Art Supply store and get a can of Design Master Surface Sealer. This stuff will cover any, and I mean any colour plastic and stop the bleedthough. you just spray it on in two or three lite mist coats. The best thing is that you don't need to sand the stuff just primer over it and paint. Give it about an hour to dry between coats and you'll be fine.

I bought a can of the Design Master stuff a while back for this, but haven't had to use it yet. So do you use it before primer? I seem to remember Pat C's article where he used it after primer. I guess it doens't really matter?

UMMMMMM I'm using the duplicolor primer sealer. but still having probs, I may just have to bite the bullet & go buy a can of duplicolor Wimbeldon White (this is the correct color for a shelby ...right?)

The best paint will not stop bleeding.You have to seal it.
