Finally got around to painting a fishing lure, which is why I got into this before I caught the "art bug". I got a primary color set of Wicked and mixed up the color I wanted. That went real well. I used a Sotar 2020 because my .3 iwata was out for repair. After a few drops of paint reduced with 4012 more than 50/50 I plugged up seriously. Got it cleared finally. After searching in here a lot I saw where someone said 4012 speeds up the dry time. I have some 4030 and I read where that helps the paint flow better. Is that true? Also the final paint job is very flat. Does the 4030 add sheen to the color? I know it's called "intercoat " so I assume it can be applied straight between coats, but don't know why(?). For the lure I am thinking of finishing it off with epoxy which would likely shine it up, too. Lastly, is 4030 any more difficult to clean out of the brush? Thanks for any info. Attached(I think) a a foto of the dull finish.
