Nitrocellulose lacquer query.....

What's Hot
.....for Them That Know Better Than Me.

If I spray a body in one colour, then wish to put a graphic design of some sort over it in another colour, still using nitrocellulose lacquer (out of a spray can) using masking tape for a crisp line, will the edges of the graphic/design/line remain 'sharp', or will it all go a bit 'mergy', as lacquer 'melts' into each subsequent layer?

I could simply experiment, but don't have the time sadly.

Ta muchly.

    1. Use vinyl "fine line" tape - the pale green 3M stuff is good.
    2. Spray quite dry
    3. Peel the tape when the lacquer is dry but still soft to avoid chipping.
    4. Spray the clear top coat quite dry too as if wet it can sag
