Basecoat Cheat Sheet

Equipment: Use a quality HVLP gun with a 1.3 -1.4 tip for best results.

Shooting Metallics: When possible shoot all panels together and in the orientation they will be on the car. Mix your paint well and practice spraying technique to eliminate "tiger stripping".

Do you have to shoot clear?: No, if you are going after a Matte finish you can stop at the basecoat, but for maximum durability, we recommend topcoating with our Matte Clear.

What is Base Coat Paint?

The base coat is the first layer of paint applied over the primer or an old finish. As the name implies, it serves as the base for a coating that goes over it. It looks best when applied using an HVLP paint gun with a 1.2-1.4 tip.

Most often, these colors are used as part of a base coat-clear coat paint system. The base provides color coverage while the clear coat provides extra shine and protection. However, one can also add translucent top coats such as the Eastwood Candeez series — or with or without custom effects. These complement the base coat to make it even more eye-catching.
