Super Spray Streaking

Postby tgotch » Mon Jan 27, 2014 11:29 am

I have been testing Super Spray A for my bottle devit issues (I usually use Borax concoction with fair success).

I brush on Super Spray with a foam brush, then fire to 1430. The gloss looks good, but the bottles have brush streaks in the glass after firing.

Anyone have suggestions to eliminate the streaks?

Go to Michael's or a craft store or art store and get a Badger air brush kit. Makes it a lot easier to use and no streaks. Helps to have a 40% off coupon for Michael s too.

Thanks for the tip. I bought a Badger 250-2 with a compressed air can to try (whole setup cost me ~$30 with coupon from Michaels.).
Results were much better.
I Just need a bit more practice to get more proficient with using the airbrush.

And make sure you're shaking the container frequently. Using a brush means you're probably picking up more of the glass in the bottom of your container.
