I had to do some major repairs
to the sole in the head
. I'm down to paint
. The first coat went pretty well. Then I decided to add the flattening agent to the final coat and it has not been flowing well at all. Orange peel in a big way. The first time (second overall coat) I attributed it to high humidity and temps. This time (third overall coat) I had the air conditioning
on. Same result. My process is:
1) Mix the perfection. I believe it's 2:1 + 10% brushing thinner
2) Mix the flattening agent. I believe it's 3:1
3) Wait 20 minutes, and mix the perfection with the flattening agent. I used 2 parts
perfection to 1 of flattener.
4) Apply with hotdog roller and tip where needed.
It just won't flow. I tried adding more thinner, but no help. Perhaps not enough, but the directions say 10%. The flattening agent directions didn't say anything about adding thinner. What am I doing wrong. I'm inclined to just leave it as it's just the head
floor. I'll call it non-skid for the head. But I worked really hard to fair and smooth everything an it's a shame to not be able to show that off.
