Response to Hairspray technique question

Hi Toby,

If I understand the question correctly, you want to spray the HS and then paint the top coat at a later date? I'd say no, wait til you can do both at one sitting.

Normally you work the chips for a considerable period of time afterwards, but if you leave the HS exposed it will likely evaporate or not have nearly the same effect. The top coat will keep this from happening, thus giving you that extra time window. I just finished chipping a model over a period of a week after spraying the top color and didn't notice too much resistance to the process.

As Tom says, give it a practice shot first to see what you're dealing with before attempting on your project.
