Default spaztix clean up?

I just switched to using all spaz, but what thinner/clean up works? "paint thinner" hardly touches it, denatured is a lil better but not right.... cant remember what I used back in the day.

It dont say on the bottle... Im guess its lacquer based and lacquer thinner yea?

Oh man, did I regret switching from Faskolor to Spazstix. The cleanup is such a chore. The best I found is Acetone. Letting it soak for a while and a whole lot of elbow grease and q-tips finally got my brush cleaned up. Maybe someone has a better solution, because it still took me most of an evening to get all the Spazstix orange out of my brush. I'm back on Faskolor. It's pretty rare for me to do neons anyway.

Hi
Lacquer Thinner works great and doesnot hurt plastic. Spray the lacquer thinner thru your airbrush

Cheapo Lac Thinner from Ace or Home Depot. NOT AUTOMOTIVE GRADE thinner. That stuff will fog the lexan....somebody posted the video to prove it. Stick with cheap stuff and (yeah yeah....) test it on some scrap lexan first.....

Im making the switch for the very same reason, WB does not always pull clean. I still want to use Rustoleum though for a backer. Can I back the Spaz with WB white THEN hit it with Rustoleum? Thanks for any help

Default spaz

The water based backer simply protects the spaz stix. It doesn't "eat tru" or desolve the spaz. The Rustoleum is fine as long as you spray it on thin layers so it dries quickly preventing it from eating thru the water based backer and affecting the spaz.
