    Ah, that makes sense. So in theory, something like old gold that Petander uses is not as susceptible due to being a yellow already, but of course, if you bake the poop out of it, it will get darker with the yellow to tan colour of the over cooked...

    Hmmmm... ok... Talk me through your coating mixing process. You should start with the powder. 20grams of powder to 100Mls of Acetone. It MUST be ACETONE. not thinners or any other rubbish you have lying around. UN1090 Acetone or MEK...nothing...

    No worries.. Warm them up prior to baking and I feel you will be good to go. I have only ever used the 20gms to 100mls Acetone mix. I have baked millions with no problem with this mix. And I only do 2 coats for rifle and pistol bullets..
