    Sweet!
    Yeah I have used them as well with good results also. I will need to get a new air brush for next time though.

    Do you use the normal Createx Colours or the Wicked Auto Air? I used to use Createx Colours but got fed up with them drying too dark. Interested to know if the pink changed much.

    Yes I just use the normal createx colours. I found the paint to dry a little darker too but doesnít change with the clear. I mix some up a little light and put on some clear plastic sheet, dry it with a heat gun and put it over the area. If itís good beautiful, if not mix it darker. Some colours are worse for drying darker too. Yellow and red are two I hate.
    I also learned that it looks a little transparent until itís dry. Put it on way too thick the first time.Doh!

    I was very lucky. Got mine from gumtree. 130 or so 60ml bottles for $100. Only 15 of those were used. Under a dollar each. JACKPOT!!

    Absolutely beautiful Boof .. looks a treat after all you hard work. A stupid question, but how do you trim? I understand that you used a hobby knife but trying to understand what you trim against to get the areas? If that makes sense. Cheers mate and well done.

    Cheers JoshZ. I suppose you could say Iím making a stencil from the frisket. Using the scalpel like a pen you have to draw around the areas you want in the particular colour youíre doing. It can be tricky. Press too light and the frisket doesnít cut properly and will pull up when you remove the piece to paint. Press too hard and the scalpel will follow any grain in the playfield ply. Small curved or intricate bits are a bitch!

    Hereís some it the fun bits. Like I said earlier, 3 hrs prep and I donít think it even took 30 seconds to spray. Guys that are restoring playfields for people earn every cent they charge.
