Masking and Painting a "Foamie"

MAWcraft Logo


Paint over the area that you want to mask an inch or so more than you want with the lightest paint you are using first.
Let this fully dry for a few hours.
Next apply the masking tape. After you have applied the tape, paint with the light colour over it overlapping into the 1 inch area of the light paint. This will seal the tape along the colour line. Let this dry for 1 to 2 hours maximum. Next apply the darker colour over the taped area overlapping the tape thick enough to hide the lighter colour.
Let this dry for about a ½ hour to 1 hour maximum and carefully remove the tape at a very sharp angle. You should have a great straight line between the two colours. Let the darker colour dry and then finish applying the darker colour to the rest of the aircraft.
