Alright using rattle can Tamiya spray paint one color. Also bought Tamiya ps-55 flat clear to paint a Jconcepts body.
Can i apply my decals on the outside of the body and then spray the flat clear on the outside to make the decals look flat too, with no damage to the decals themselves?

White always makes them brighter. Black makes them darker. All depends on what your going for.

I will usually back everything with a silver, then a black to finish off the inside of the body. I hate seeing the colors through the clear windows.

Awesome sweet as brothers , if I was to use white or silver would I have to also use the black or is the black just up to me if I want it a darker green than obviously a lighter green ?
Thank you for helping

Don't have to use black if you use white or silver backing, but if you did, it probably would not change the green color.


I suggest you try your colors out 1st on a test piece - either a clear soda bottle, or some clear plastic or plexiglass - backing colors will drastically change the primary colors. If you look at color charts on the Wicked Colors or Auto Air Colors web site, they show the color backed by white and again by black, and they often look very different.
