|Shadow Gray. In a can.|
The weather here in east Tennessee has simply sucked. Winter has been replaced with a season of mud, water and floods. But in the past two days, the sun as appeared to occasionally dry this place out just a little bit and I saw the opportunity to try out this spray paint.
|Masked off with Artist's Tape.|
First though, I had to mask off the sections I wanted to try to keep black. I used acid free Artist's Tape for this.
|Shadow Gray freshly sprayed on.|
I had a really challenging time getting the spray paint to come out of the can at first, but when I finally did I was a little worried that the color may be too bright. Even layered over black like it is, it still seems bright. But I suppose a lot of paints do this.
|After a few hours of curing and no longer wet.|
After letting it cure outside for a few hours I brought it in and removed the masking tape. The Artist's Tape did the job perfectly! The paint itself seems to have darker as it dried but not too much. I may have to hit the recesses with The Fang to deepen the color a bit more. We'll seen ok once I get around to the assembly stage...
