In this post I will touch on Acrylic Enamel and Synthetic Enamel Paints and how you can successfully use them on your projects
When it comes to painting your car or project you basically have a few choices and most times our choices depend on our budgets.
If you don’t have the budget for a high quality two stage base coat clear coat paint job then you have another option. A single stage acrylic enamel or synthetic enamel paint job.
Let me explain the difference between a single stage paint job VS a two stage paint job.
Enamel Paint Jobs are Called Single stage paint jobs:
A single stage paint job means just that. All you do is mixup and paint a single paint. No clear coat required. Think of it like some of your wife’s, or girlfriends nail polish. You paint on a few coats and it’s already glossy.
These single stage paints also come in a variety of options and the cheapest being the “Synthetic Enamel Blend“. Synthetic enamel paints are cheaper because of the blend of the paint that it is. Usually, all you need when mixing a synthetic enamel paint is your main color and a reducer. Just two items to mix.
The other type of enamel paint will be the “Acrylic Enamel blend” where you have 3 parts to the mix. Your main paint color, your reducer, and your activator also called hardener. This blend will cost a little more, maybe an extra $40-65 dollars because all you’re doing is buying the activator and adding that into the mix. This Acrylic Enamel blend will be much more durable because of the hardener that’s added to the mix.
With the synthetic enamel blend believe it or not, it will still dry properly and also have a great finish but when you think of durability your acrylic system will last longer and have a harder finish. If you are cheap and on a budget and looking for a FAST paint job then synthetic enamel paint will be best for you.
Perfect for buying and selling a car for profit and you want a quick inexpensive paint job on it.
Like I said the difference between the both enamel systems will be about $40-65 dollars.
You can paint them rather easily and if your prep work is done correct you’ll have a nice finish. I have also sprayed this stuff outside under a open canvas tent on a nice day. The results were pretty amazing with hardly any dust.
