Do you know if I can apply Zero Paints 2K gloss clear over Tamiya flat paint (TS spray)?
I have lots of Tamiya paint laying around, and I wonder if I would get a nice shine without problems.
Thanks in advance for your help!

Hi,

Similar to the original question, would Tamiya clear TS13 bring enough shine to tamiya flat paint?

Thanks

Hi,

I don't use Tamiya clear TS13 spraycan so I can not tell you how glossy it is.
I use clear coat for my airbrush, sometimes 1k or 2k Zero-Paints.
But why do you use a gloss clear coat over a flat paint?
I think it's better to use a gloss paint and then a gloss clear coat.

Be carefull using TS13 over decals.
TS13 can be very agressive to decals sometimes.

good luck

Pretty sure I did TS-6 (matt black) & TS27 (matt white) then TS-13 over the top. turned out pretty good.

If you're using both Zero basecoat and 2K clear, the basecoat is meant to go on matt, and does unless you spray it too thickly! So the 2K is quite capable of glossing a matt finish to a wet-look shine. TS-13 will do the same, though it's actually a lot "hotter" than Zero 2K, and in my experience can sometimes "melt" the underlying TS colour a bit, which is more of a problem with metallics because it moves the flake around and changes the colour, even if you can't see any actual "runs"...
