are you saying that you actually spray 1/128" flake through a 1.4??? or 1/250"???

it was probably the 1/128 because it was smaller than 1/64 (thats what i used the 2.4 for) and it was bigger than 1/256.

Ok, I got soem HOK F-22 Flake. its 1/128". I am going to try and spray it with a 1.4. My painters at work seem to agree that it will come out of that gun fine. We got a special base coat that's clear just for spraying flakes so I am going to try that too. Anyone else got any input I would appreciate it.

thanx

I'd say its just binder/mettalic stabellizer - clear basecoat all companies make this ..

this special basecoat you are referring to???..........



would this be sg-100????
that's intercoat clear from hok, I absolutely hate it and think its crap. I am going to use Sikkens 666, and Sabre is right its a binder! We use it at work for pearls and kandies.
