What has been your experience with the effect of sweat on the paint? With the exception of Vinyl Dye or Coating I have experienced stickiness and even had the paint rub off over very little time. I expect that your multiple layers of varnish help prevent deterioration, but do you still have a problem with stickiness? Thanks.

I can't say I have had experience with that. So far that is. My paint usually dries quickly and with a smooth finish, no stickiness. A layer on varnish after anf its still the same.

I wasn't as clear as I should have been so I will clarify. When you use your blaster in a war does it get sticky around the grip as a result of contact between your hand and the paint? Thanks.

I have a tip on spray paint.
If you suck at hand painting like me, and are trying to tape a non-straight line, put the tape comepltely covering the edge of where you're trying to paint. Then, press down hard until you can see the lines in the shell again. Take out a razor knife and gently cut along the lines that you see.
It worked beautifully on my LS/titan.

Not so far. Although, I wear fingerless gloves, so I've no idea. I may do a war without and see what happens.

The Scout I bought from Venom arrived yesterday. A standard red and black version. Today it looks like this.

At a challenge from Britnerfmogul, I hand painted this. still not sold of hand painting over spray, especially for the gray, but I gotta admit, I do like the way this turned out.
