The neon paint described here is one of the 26 special effect paints in the Urban Fine-Art product line; the paints all have a high level of pigmentation and provide maximum coverage as well as, and above all, durability.
Because neon pigments are invariably less UV resistant by their nature, a protective coat of the Urban Fine-Art UV varnish should be applied over any application that demands longevity (it comes in glossy and matte) in order to increase this paint´s UV resistance. Note: while it can be assumed that customary neon spray paints will usually be lightfast for X number of weeks, Molotow insists that their Fine-Art version will last a few MONTHS! The optimum luminescence is achieved when the neon paint is applied to a surface that has been primed with the white coloured Urban Fine-Art filler!
Urban Fine-Art paints are great for use on artist canvases; they have a viscosity similar to oil paint and can be reworked on such surfaces with a palette knife, brush, or other utensil. In addition, Urban Fine-Art paints will adhere to all dry, dust-free and grease-free surfaces like cardboard, paperboard, plastic (with the usual exceptions of silicone, PE, PP, POM, etc.), wood, glass, stone, metal, clay and other natural materials.
The fine spray will be dust-dry in about five minutes (depending on the thickness of the coat, of course) and completely dry in a few hours. When thoroughly dry the paint is weather resistant. After use, the can should be turned upside down and sprayed for about three seconds in order to evaculate any paint in the nozzle and prevent it drying the opening closed.
Aerodecor spray paint and Marabu Buntlack Spray are pigmented lacquers that contain solvents and have acrylic resin-based binders. After about 10 minutes, the satin-matte coat of film will be dust-dry - when completely dry it is weather resistant.
The two sprays are different from one another in the nature of their sprays: The Aerodecor Spray has a somewhat finer mist than the Marabu Buntlack, with the result that the latter is smoother after drying. The Aerodecor is for this reason the more popular for model making purposes. Both paints adhere well to dry, dust-free and grease-free surfaces like those of cardboard, paperboard, plastic, wood, glass, stone, metal, clay and various natural materials.
While Marabu Buntlack is, according to the manufacturer, compatible with polystyrene, the Aerodecor should first be tested before being applied to rigid foam materials because it can indeed have a corrosive effect. As a basic rule for polystyrene, all spray paints should be applied in many thin coats from an appreciable distance because the propellant alone can often be the cause of damage to polystyrene foam. To be safe, preliminary tests should simply be made before every application.
When finished, the spray can should be turned upside-down and further sprayed until only the propellant without paint is emitting. This will prevent the can from leaking and the nozzle from becoming blocked.
