Problem with gold/bronze paint


I just got done painting my 89 belt but now that it's dry, I can still run my finger or something else over it and some of the metallic gold comes off. it's not enough to notice on the belt but I think it could rub off on the rest of my suit. Any suggestions on how to fix this would be appreciated. I just hope I didn't make it FUBAR.
thanks

You may have nuked it. Gold paint does not flex with the belt. Also, urethane does not take paint well either.

No worries, man. It'll probably all flake off or chip off, use a toothbrush? Also some of the guys here can recommend a paint remover that's urethane safe, if one ever existed? Give it a while, someone'll have your answer.....

Hopefully. I might spray a fixative or protective clear coat over it and see it that works. if not, I'll try soap and water first

The more layers oyu put over it the more damage is done. It'll never bond right and ill look like hell in the flexed areas... sadly I speak from experience :rollin

P.S. there are certain urethanes and paints that'll do the job from step 1, but 99.9% chance is it's too late for that. Gold keaton belts are a dime a dozen! I have 2 and never wear either :P

Re: Problem with gold/bronze paint


figured out how to get it off! Windex!! When I was in the Corps, we used it to get scratches and scuffs off of our dress shoes, so I figured it could work for taking off paint that hasn't bonded completely. And it works like a charm. now to find a better quality paint.

Re: Problem with gold/bronze paint


I'm a autobody guy (all my life (37yrs), Dad owns a shop) urethane paints pretty easy if you fallow the proper steps. But they are all urethane based paints as well. I can post up some links to what I use if you like.
