    Christmas is comming!

    Christmas is just around the corner so I cranked out some red and green "ornaments"......with a few lumps of "coal" in there for the bad kids!

    All are ESPC'd with the new Amazon gun.

    Red is HF.

    Black is HF matte

    Green is smoke's blue + HF yellow. Mixes and sprays kind of an orange color but melts into a green! You can see the yellow/blue mix in the coat. Powders do not mix like liquid paints, but work pretty well.

    Matte black still gives the best finish of all! Glossy stuff just looks cheeeeep in my book. On anything!

    40 cal 175gn Lee mold.

    Some pink for the 310 Cadet. This is my first try so I did a small sample.
    These are ASBBDT with Smoke's powder. Worked well I think but I did buy a PC gun and am looking forward to getting that going.

    I was going for the zombie look and sprayed some with Smoke's green and then sprayed lightly with HF red straight down from the top. They covered well during spraying and all had red noses, but it faded into the green when curing. I guess I should mebbe cure the green, then spray over with HF red and cure again. I'm not unhappy with the look but they were more red on top and not at all splotchy like now.

    Colt 1860, it just feels right.

    This was my roots in coating... the Piglet method. They aren't as pretty as ESPC... but the bands were coated well and they shot great!
    Thanks to Rangefinder for getting me into this!!!

    After testing today...... the answer is: Yes, it is better to bake them and then add the second color and bake again.
    These definitely look better than my first try. I am very pleased with this effect.

    First try with the gun.
    The coverage is definitely better but there is a lot of lost powder on the foil. I think I can place them closer together but with such tall boolits I was worried about getting good coverage on the sides
    This is with Smoke's blue.



    .408"
