Abount painting "Bond G17" as a undercoat

-Effects of undercoats
When you paint EVA foam, paint a undercoat.
The effects are as follows.

-Color becomes well.
-It becomes hard to come off.
-Gloss comes out well.
-You can save quantity of the paint.

-Paint "Bond G17"(one of liqud glue in Japan) as a undercoart
This method spread smel of thinner. Use this way if you don't spread smell of thinner.

One of necessary thing is "Bond G17"(one of liqud glue in Japan).



And lacquer thinner.



Mix "Bond G17"(one of liqud glue in Japan) and lacquer thinner in ratio of 3:2 or 3:1.
Ratio is good even rough ratio.
Use bowls or a paper cups as vessels. It's good to fit a faucet to a mouth of lacquer thinner.



Watch detailed process in Youtube.

Then put on point ventilation is good.

Attention in the work
-When you uses a thing including the thinner(Bond, lacquer thinner etc) or spray, make good ventilation.
And wear a gas mask.

And don't breathe smoke, don't put smoke in your eyes.
