Black Infill


Recommended Posts

Just infilled a brass plaque and thought I would try Gravo's black paint.Normally I use Mastergraves cellulose which gives a lovely finish but is quite thick and sometimes needs thinning.

Gravo's stuff is completely opposite,very runny.I had to infill twice as when the paint had dried there were very small dots of brass showing through where the paint had thinned out.I've also noticed some of the infill has finished glossy and smooth, but some parts of letters are are very rough with a matt finish.Any ideas as to what would cause this?

did you use a rag and disc to clean off? that may have left some fluff on the high points, or if you used meths that can leave it matt when it dries too. not really sure what the gravo paint is made from, but if it is cellulose just leave the lid off for a couple of days and it should thicken up, along with your head. hope this helps.

just looked in their book, it seems there is a diluter. not sure if this is for the paint. also found this on the interweb. "The one major problem encountered when using polyurethane paints is its toxicity. Breathing the spray mist from polyurethanes may cause severe sickness or even death" :smt104

How did you clean the plaque up

 

polishing duster trick with peek.

 

What sort of duster did you use, and at what stage, was the infilled area completely dry.

 

I used the green dusters from CB as last polish up.I had left to dry for about 2 days as I was busy and never got back to it.
