    Default Spraying plastic items like eye brows for instance

    Chaps,

    What method do you guys use..

    So far I have rubbed right back, plastic primered and put on the colour.

    Now - some say after 24 hrs run the colour down with 1200 grit wet and dry using lots of water and then laquer, others, just laquer.

    So what have people done previously?

    ta Ant

    I normally use 1400 grit for flatting, 800 might be a little harsh, you'll get a better finish with the higher grade.

    1200 grit plenty of water and lightly rub it flat, dry and then laquer, only if the paint finish is not smooth in the first place anyway
