Default How much is too much?

I don't want to step on any toes so I thought I should ask the pros. I have gone further into my build and cannot decide if I should post the pictures of the paint steps (schedule) or not. I know there are a lot of guys building plugs and posting some FANTASTIC info here but I haven't seen much about the paint schedules and don't want to over step any possible lines that I am not aware of . PLEASE advise!

post away. everyone here does thier own thing when it comes to building. im sure the paint process between builders are simillar, but im sure we are all a bit different from eachother...for me its two coats of bin primmer, then as many coats of paint it takes me untill im satisfied with the results...that can be anywhere between 4 and 20 coats of paint...its all about personal preferance. ide be glad to see posts of your paint steps...maybe ill get my camera out and take some step by step pics too.

Feel free to post whatever you want when it comes towards building. It's not like spotburning with fishing, anything the collective group can do to further the art of plug building only benefits everyone both builder and end user.

I used em for 20 years ( and still do on prototype work).... sooner or latter you'll want more than they can offer... they also are expensive and require special handeling to spray indoors.... acrylic water based paints are the perfect answer...
