    Default Transparency with House Paint? Tips?

    This industrious little noob figured out how to print with house paint & floetrol. May thanks to the volumes on knowledge that reside in the bowels of these sacred forums.

    All bullshit aside, i'd like to print some overlapping transparent colors - is this doable with house paint? If so what do I mix in and in what proportions? Will the speedball stuff work b/c I have some of that.

    Thanks Y'all

    pigment-to-carrier ratio varies from brand to brand. you'll probably gonna have to mix up varying percentages and do some step prints.

    House-paint is pretty tranny to begin with. I add more floetrol but you have to be careful about the dreaded orange peels. Then you need to add something thicker like speedball tranny base.

    Guess I'm just gonna have to roll up my sleeves and a heater and just see what happens.

    Thanks Y'all.
