House of Color paints
Posted by fordboy46706 on Monday, June 30, 2008 11:57 PM

I talked to someone in technical support from Coast Airbrush today.  They told me that House of Color paint won't eat (melt) plastic models.  They said it was because House of Color paints are a urathane based paint.  Just wondering if someone could back that up for me.  If so what type of primer do I need to use.  And could someone tel me what type of primer to use with laqours.  All you help is appreciated thanks Fordboy.

Yes that is true I use HOK all the time.You need to use a good lacquer primer.They can be cleared with lacquer or dare I go here....Urethane clear.If you decide to go the Urethane route you must wear a good quality charcoal respirator at the minimum.The people at Coast are great aren't they?

yes i use hok all the time..as far as laquer primer never tried that as to that advice from david monnig the owner of coast...hok is urethane and you should use the same medium from start to finish, you don't have to and it make work but it may bite you in the end..i used laquer primer before and my base crazed so they recommended urethane primer from sem .. i bought i mean wasted money on four seperate cans it sprayed a little and then just went to like silly string and clogged...so now iuse 2 part hok epoxy primer..               thats why i don't understand black gold, hok is a urethane not a laquer so how can you reduce with laquer thinner... when first started airbrushing models i used black gold and all kinds of problems .. it might be different now.but i just stick to hok kolor espescially after hearing the owner kosmoski himself speak in vegas at the a action getaway..any ways hope any info could help you .... 

oh yeah coast airbrush is like the playboy mansion part 2..

Your best bet with HOK is to get a copy of their tech book it will tell you all you need to know about their products.However you must realize that it was written with 1:1 cars in mind bases mix 2:1 in the tech book for airbrush use you will generally reduce 1:1 with urethane reducer.I personally think that the epoxy is way too thick for model use in small scale but I have used their Ko Seal 2 as a primer but as stated in my first post for the most part I use Duplicolor lacquer primer.I do agree with Dave Monnig as far as not using lacquer in a 1:1 job. I have used it on properly prepped models with no problems for years now.If you get a chance to attend an Airbrush action getaway I highly recomend it I have been to 2 and they are worth every penny spent.If you are ever able to talk to Jon Kosmoski I highly recomend that also, as he will be more than glad to explain how you can use lacquer over the HOK bases that is why they are called universal bases.I have been to 2 seminars that he did some years back here locally one at a bodyshop and one at a NASCAR drivers personal restoration shop in Mooresville this was right after the sale oh HOK to Valspar had been completed.Jon is an excellent teacher watching him paint is something you will never forget.I hope this info is as helpful as intended and not cinsidered an attack of any type.

With regards to adorning, picking paint shading can truly be a test. While you may feel that there are such a large number of decisions will undoubtedly locate the correct one, you may wind up feeling that there are such a significant number of decisions you don't know where to start!. austin manufactured homes Choose a superb brand that offers little jugs of shading to test, or put resources into a solitary quart of a picked paint shading.
