Tom, once again a beautiful job.

Question: When you're thinning the paint at a 1:1 ratio, how many coats do you have to spray to get the coverage you want?

Thanks guys for the compliments.

The undercoat of dolphin gray which is a light gray I use one coat. I have found that when I am painting something dark in this black and shiny I need an undercoat to get the final coat to look right. This coat is not perfect.

The Charcoal Gray usually takes two coats. Even at 1:1 the Folk Art paints go on seemingly thin to me. Also I usually need a second coat to cover up all the spots I miss. On something flat like the weights many times I can get a way with one coat of the undercoat and one final coat. Most times, however, I apply one coat of an undercoat and two final coats.

Bruce if you go back through the Photography Forum you will find many pieces of rolling stock that Tom has weathered.
Each has a listing of the paints used to do the project.
There must be a couple of dozen that Tom has done so far.
Tom as usual great work.
I have been taking notes as I posted a photo on the Foss' thread with a piece of rolling stock that was new out of the box.
Rusty said that it needed to be weathered so I have been rereading your great posts.
thanks they have been a big help in purchasing the appropriate colors.
