  • techniques for uniform color adhesion?

    this is my thing guys, maybe i can get some suggestions.

    i can't get paint to adhere to my fabrications uniformly. there always seems to be 3 different shades of black when i'm done, one shade where the monitor bezel was, a slightly lighter shade where the filler/spot putty was applied, and a 3rd different shade where the original bezel i hacked up is.

    also i suck at feeling, because as soon as i spray on a coat of primer, every little imperfection comes right out. im looking at it right now and i suck.

    the stuff i'm using is all rattle-can, it's dupli-color auto spray and dupli-color sandable black primer. maybe i should switch to something else, or maybe move up to shooting from a HPLV gun?

    I've only done one fabrication but, have read hundreds of posts & everyone swears by SEM paint products. The are a little more expensive, but well worth the price in the end. So that is what I used.

      I am using Sem as well but may not have preped right.The Sem has a tendency to peel for me. Any ideas on that?
