Any successful clearcoats over Magic Marble paints out there?


I've seen some decent looking swirls on youtube done with the Magic Marble paints, but I haven't seen any clear coated....that I know of

I've read that clearcoat eats this stuff right off the guitar.... So anyone here have any success with these paints?

I want to do a PAW swirl for myself and I don't think the Humbrols are going to get bright enough for what I want...

Imo the hardest part of any build is the clearcoat. It can totally wipe out any any swirl or painted finish in seconds if done wrong.
The easiest and most problem free for me has been Nitrocellulose in rattle cans but it takes many many coats to level out contours and raised areas such as swirls. I couldn't tell you if its compatible with the paints you mention.
The quickest build up and drying paint I've used is Spraymax 2K in rattle cans but I've had hit and miss results with this , mainly with air bubbles forming after spraying .
Hope this helps.

Thanks for the info... I've had really good success with Krylon Fusion Clear and automotive high gloss clear from automotivetouchup.com over swirls and everything else really...

I'd still be curious to see if anyone has been able to clear over Magic Marble

check out andyt and his swirls with onehot enamels. very bright and you can use 2k clear on them.
also i used minwax polyurethane on alot of swirls starting out. dries in 1 day and in a rattlecan.

I was just checking out YOUR swirls on Youtube and found the 1shot paints advice... I'm going to order up some 1shot... looks very promising!

Thanks for the info man!
