Basecoat Paints

Why Basecoat/Clearcoat?

Eastwood’s Basecoats are great for beginner painters or for users looking to achieve a deep, wet look. With a basecoat clear coat system, you focus on getting the color coverage with the basecoat and then focus on achieving a glossy finish by applying a clear coat. This makes it a bit easier to spray. Eastwood’s basecoats are an activated basecoat, which means that they create a strong bond with the foundation coats. If you are looking for a metallic or pearl color, consider getting it in a basecoat as it will be easier to spray and achieve proper orientation.

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.
