HELP!! Spray-paint issue!!

OK, working on painting my manifold cover. I washed and dried the original paint. Scuffed it lightly, then primed it with a primer for plastic. After that dried, I lightly sanded the primer with 1000-grit. Cleaned the surface with plain water, clean rag, then blew it off with compressed air.

Set the part in the box, shook the hell out of my new can of DupliColor, and began spraying. This happened INSTANTLY.



So, what happened, and why? Also, what can I do to fix it?

HEEEEEELP!!!

That's from wet primer. You need to allow at least one days worth of curing between primer and paint. Sand down the blue when it dries and let it cure for a few hours. Then do it again.. Should work without needing more primer

I painted a model once and used a whole can of metallic burnt orange. It took 4days to dry........but it came out looking like a real paint job and was smooth as glass.

Moral of the story: Take your time brother. It will look great in the end.

When you handled the cover while painting, you flexed it slightly. I did the same thing ONCE. Next time, buy a lazy Suzan that you can spin without touching the part.

Have fun sanding.

No, that can't be it, because it crackled like that the instant I sprayed the paint. No touching. However, clean-up was a breeze. Laid a rag over the part, soaked the rag in lacquer thinner, and took it back to bare plastic in a few seconds.
