    I'm not quite sure what your plan is. Is the initial painting going to be a background for the second reference?

    I would put frisket down and cut out the Picture and base paint it white where the picture's going,Leaving the area around the people untouched so as to leave the background your panel.Then paint in the people on the white base. BTW nice job on the panel too!

    Nice grinding job! What candy is that?

    I think ti will look killer. Did you do a test panel? My only concern (might) be that because the candy color shfts so much it might be at times pretty close to the color of the players shorts. Of course that will be opaque so it might not matter. Really looking forward to seeing this one move ahead. I did a ground aluminum panel for my wife on mothers day and love the way these pieces just look so alive as they move and dance!

    You may want to spray a seal cote over the white to keep it from bleeding and making your red pink.

    Is that dirt track brown or hugger orange?

    On the topic of stopping the bleeding, it's my understanding that neither that transparent base nor the intercoat clear will do the job. You really need 2 part clear. If you mixed the 4030 intercoat with the candy (per the instructions) than using that again will reactivate it allow the candy to bleed up. The transparent base (different chemical make up) is a better choice but it just limits the bleeding, doesn't stop it (at least that's been my experience). You really need a 2 part clear (or maybe even just a light coat of rattle can clear?) to create a full barrier. I'm not sure, but I think there is a new Autoborne sealer, that might be able to act as a full barrier but I have no info saying that. I do recall hearing Createx was working on a full barrier and I know that is new on the market. Maybe I am connecting dots that should not be connected. If someone tests that I would be interested to know the results.

    If it's been cleared then you should be good to go, no need for anything else. Unless like you mentioned you add more candies and plan to go over them :).

    If you have the new Autoborne sealer I'd be curious if you sprayed some candy H20 as a test and "sealed" it, if it would work. Would be nice to have a water based option so I could save the nasty two part stuff for the final clear coat!

    I think it would work since it's the 4030 the that reactivates things

    Looks great nice work on the grinding,! No additional sealer needed, because you have it cleared - just scuff and paint, unless you are using candy 2o on the artwork as mentioned above. Keep us updated on the progress.

    You want to paint the FC Bayern München. Where do you come from Canada?
    A 2K clear ist a good barrier for the candys. The 4030 is not for prevent bleed-through say Createx in the technical information.
    Cool project!
