Problems with Montana Gold spraypaint

Post by robotsonic » Sun Jul 06, 2008 11:42 pm

I've begun customizing my Dunnys, and my process so far has been priming with Rustoleum Plastic Primer, putting down a base color with Montana Gold, and then painting with Sharpie Poster Paint pens.

Most of the time when painting with the pens, the surface has good "tooth", i.e. the surface is sticky enough so it draws well, but sometimes the surface is slippery, making it hard to put down a line. Does anyone have this problem with Montana Gold?

I used Montana Gold on a Munny, and it looked great at first, then when I handled it the texture was like powder. It would come all of the way off, just my smudging with my finger. Not sure if it was just my can, but it was NOT what I expected at all. I ended up having to strip it and repaint with acrylic.

Try using a brush on primer by Glidden called GRIPPER. It is available in white and grey. This primer sticks to anything!

The Montana Gold is amazing stuff, however, it is supposed to be a matte finish and some colors do have a slight sheen.

Where can I get this Gripper stuff? So I take it it's good to use with Dunny and Munny, and works well in combination with Montana Gold? As in, the Montana won't be slippery at all to paint on?

Any Home Depot carries the Gripper. You can use it on the Munny or Dunny and it will adhere fine and any paint will stick to it. The primer will not make the Montana Gold "un-slippery". If you don't like the dried finish of Montana Gold, there is not a primer that will change that. I hope this helps.
