I recently picked up a 4 oz. bottle of Alclad ALC-600 "Aqua Gloss" and am looking for some advice on airbrushing this product for a pre-decal clear coat. My understanding is that this is a water-based acrylic, similar to Future. I have used Future in the past, but am wondering if this product might work better for me.
A couple of questions:
1) Will the Aqua Gloss, since it is water-based, be safe to use over my acrylic base color coats? I use only Tamiya and MM acrylics. I would assume yes, but wanted to be sure.
2) Is it best to spray the Aqua Gloss direct from the bottle, with no thinning?
3) What air pressure and distance do you recommend? I am using a Paasche H external mix, single action airbrush.
4) How long does it take for the Aqua Gloss to cure before it is ready for decals?
5) Will setting solutions (Microset, Microsol) affect it?
6) After decaling, I intend to use Tamiya XF-86 acrylic flat clear as a final matte coat. Will this be OK and not harm the Aqua Gloss underneath?
Any other advice or suggestions are welcome.
Thanks in advance!
