yellow paint is the worst

Posted in Custom Workstation

I have two diffenrt kinds of yellow paint
testors enamel and testors acrylic and neither one of them is sticking very well to this figure im making
it is just barely showing up its kinda pissing me off

any thing I should try to make it stick better or to make it thicker maybe

if your using testors acrylic yellow then just shake really well, I mean really well. Shake the hell out or that thing till it hurts. it make the paint thick and mixes it well. if that doesn't work then I would try priming the item your painting first.

Mix a bit of white paint into the yellow.Do a coat or two of this mixture and yellow will show up much better after wards. I can get a yellow onto a red in 2 or 3 coats this way.

By all that's holy yellow paint is a bitc-, er, a pain... yeah. I find a nice white base (or primer as bob suggested) works wonders.

Yellow is a pain(as well as white and metallic paints).
Did you primer the item you are painting? It may take several coats, something I'm working on now I'm on the 5th coat and it just starting to look the way I want it. They do sell thickening agents at art and hobby stores to add to acrylic paints, never used it though.
