This Urban Fine-Art paint is for use on glass and other translucent surfaces. The colours have a milky, diaphanous quality even though Molotow calls them transparent. At Modulor we call an effect whereby light passes through but cannot be actually seen through "translucent". These "transparent" spray paints are therefor an alternative to the translucent adhesive films made by Orafol, to coloured PVC films or coloured transparent/translucent acrylic glass. The intensity of the transparency or translucence, or that of the chosen colour, depends on the number of coats that are applied. These spray paints can be used both indoors and outdoors.
The best results are produced by applying thin coats at intervals of five minutes. A thin application is generally dust-dry in about five minutes depending on the thickness and is completely dry in a few hours, whereby it is then weather resistant. After use, the can should be turned upside-down and sprayed for about three seconds in order to clear the valve so it won´t be clogged when dried out.
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.
