Blending | Matching Metallic Paint Involving Use of Drop | Mist Coat

Matching paint can be difficult and
oftentimes very frustrating, but if you give yourself some space to blend the
paint and fool the eye and then clear the rest of the area the job becomes a
lot easier. Today I’ll be spraying Nason base coat clear coat and the first step
is just a light coat called a tack coat just to get the paint to stick. that’s good for the first coat. The
second coat should be an even, medium to wet coat that spreads out a little bit
further than the first coat. The third and final coat will be a nice
even wet coat but since this is metallic paint, I’m gonna give it a drop coat or a
mist coat which is increasing the pressure and backing off a little bit to
even out the metallic flakes. Now I’m gonna wait a few – just maybe 20
seconds to a minute – for it to tack up then I’m going to give it a little bit
of a mist coat. Now for the mist coat or the drop coat to even out the
metallic flakes After allowing the base coat to dry for
about 20 minutes, the next step is to clear both panels. The first coat is
going to be a tack coat – a light coat and the second coat is going to be wet and
shiny and the final coat. And this will be the last coat. After allowing the paint to dry, this is
the final result. In review, the repair area was primed blocked with 150 grit
primed again then what sanded with 320. The rest of
the fender and door were masked off and scuffed with the red pad. I then gave it
three coats of Nason base coat color – blending into the fender and about
halfway into the door. Finally I gave it two coats of Nason clear coat. I hope you

  1. Another good video. Here's another benefit to your "short and sweet" videos. Besides not dragging it out with a lot of useless babble, I can watch you while on the can without my butt falling asleep. Thanks for posting.

  2. Thank you your videos are easy to watch and understand you make it look easy have been applying it to some of the jobs I have done keep the videos coming


  4. Nice job. So, watching you spray, instead of going up the panel overlapping every pass of the gun, you go across and then back over the same area before moving up to overlap the next section across. Interesting. Different people get the same thing done different ways! " several ways to skin a mule", they say! You also need to do a candy paint job so we can see how to keep the mottling out of that paint job. Thanks, Tom
