For my second pair I am painting them OD. I misted the paint from about 2 feet away then let it dry for an hour between coats. after the last coat ( #10 I think ) there is no tacky feeling. I think I might try the Clear plasti dip on them.
I am making some purple goggles (dont ask), and unfortunately all they had was Purple in Gloss. If I got a matte clear coat, would that dull it down?I think it would dull it down.
Ronnyboy.............Yes, use Testors Dullcote Flat Clear Lacquer, white can from Michaels or similar store.I just used this stuff on my goggles over Krylon Fusion olive drab and it did the trick and cured the "stickies"
Spray in a vented area, wear a mask.
One of the first hurdles I realized I'd have to overcome, is the vinyl facemask of the goggles. Spraypaint doesn't stick really well to it, as many of you probably already know. My solution was to use Vinyl Dye Spray, that can be found in an automotive store. It is specifically designed to adhere to plastic parts like bumpers and trim. You can also try a Krylon adhesion promoter, but I found that it dried too slowly for my tastes. Vinyl Dye drys quickly, and can be sparaypainted over with garden vareity spray paint. It will be a better solution, in my opinon, than just leaving it bare.
Anyway, my apologies if this has ben contributed already. I'll post pics of my finished goggles soon.
