I have been putting off the lining of my painted parts  !!  I have a Beugler striping tool, which I was hoping to use for the wheel spokes, but to start off I thought I would have a go at the front axle, with a brush and vinyl masking tape  how hard can it be.....??!!     I opened my yellow striping paint and it was completely separated - no problem, I thought..... I stirred it really well, but it seemed very thin and when I painted it on, I eventually needed 4 coats before the plum colour underneath was covered.

There is no way this paint will work in the Beugler, is there ?  From looking at a few videos, it seems you get ONE shot at it..... and reading one of Lynn threads it seems that is the name of the paint to use ?   The Craftmaster Paint is very dissapointing - has anyone else had any similar experience ?

I use "oneshot" in my lining pen and it works great . Its all down to practice lots of practice before you go near your model and once you start a line DONT stop or hesitate

I have only used Craftmaster paints on my DCC. The lining enamel has worked well in my Beugler lining pen and with the "Pinstripe" lining tape. Actually the paint works better when its colder in the pen - as it is thicker when cold -

As Mark says take plenty of time and practise a lot. The good thing is with the Beugler, if you don't like the line, wipe it off with white spirit and try again until you get it right. Just be mindful that the wheel on the pen will mark the base layer of paint with faint ridges. It has gone wrong so badly sometimes i decided to repaint the whole lot!!

Hi

I also suggest practicing on a sheet of glass or mirror. Easy to wipe off and requires more control as a slippery surface. So once you get it going on the glass, on paintwork will be easy.
