Alclad II Lacquers was formed in 1999 in England with the aim of providing modellers with a range of easy to use realistic Natural Metal Finishes and quickly became many modellers preferred choice for Natural Metal Finishes.
The surfaces to be painted must be thoroughly clean and free from dust,grease,oil and finger marks.
Apply the correct primer for the type of Alclad being used. Apply one of these primers before using High Shine ALCLAD:
Alclad ALC-302 GREY PRIMER
Alclad ALC-306 WHITE PRIMER & MICROFILLER
Alclad ALC-309 BLACK PRIMER & MICROFILLER
Tamiya or Gunze Sangyo plastic primers
ALCLAD should be sprayed at 12-15psi. Spray from a distance of 2-3 inches from the surface being painted using a narrow to medium width spray fan. Use the airbrush like a paint brush-aim to cover the model in a methodical manner.
Buffing is not necessary-tonal variation can be made by polishing selected panels with Micromesh.
