Paint crazing


Recommended Posts

Before the crash - Doogs suffered crazing after using Gunze Super Clear. I had used this for two years without a problem............until recently. I am building the Airfix Bentley (on SPandR) and sprayed the petrol tank with Humbrol Enamel followed much later by the Gunze. Immediate crazing resulting in complete rub back and prime.

Matt's problem was with the colour underneath bleeding through the top colour... a different issue...


With paint crazing, I have found if, you paint a top coat over the Enamel which isn't fully dried, it will craze... The reason is, the underneath colour (Enamel) is shrinking as it dry's and it pulls the overlaying colour/varnish with it creating the crazing effect.
