Hi all, I want to spray the deck of my next board fungle camo, and since I am going to have the board glassed, I’d like to spray the camo pattern on the foam. To mask certain areas, I was thinking of trying to paint on a liquid mask similar to this: http://www.hobbylinc.com/htm/par/par701.htm Anyone have any experience with this stuff or doing camo patterns in general? Thanks.
NO I WOULDN’T DO THAT, YOUR FOAM IS POUROUS, WHY DON’T YOU LAY DOWN 2 OR 3" AUTOMOTIVE QUALITY TAPE THE FULL LENGTH OF YOU BOARD AND TRACE DESIGN THEN EXACTO KNIFE THE SHAPES/DESIGN. SAVE THE CUTOUTS OFF TO THE SIDE AND RE-APPLY FOR MASKING IF NEEDED. VERY LIGHT SPRAYS, SEVERAL COATS. MAKE SENSE?
That makes total sense. I’ll have to give that a try. Thanks.
You can also spray a light coat of spray fixative over colors to minimize lift off… a good idea for multicolored work. T.
Sheets of peel and stick contact paper work really good too. Comes in a roll - pretty cheap.
You might consider spraying the entire board in whatever your lightest color is… I think you’ll find out quickly that your taking on an ambitious project. btw… the fixitive helps, but the foam itself can come upeasily, just little specks, but it’s enough to ruin a paint job. Use a hairdryer when pulling up your mask.
