Fixing a hair in Future?

Recommended Posts

I just sprayed a really nice top coat of Future and as I'm admiring how nice it came out,  under a bright light I noticed a long, thin hair embedded in it.  (probably got stuck in the first coat) 😞  I also have a small run too.

 

 I did some searching around and found the most commonly recommended fix for the run is to let it cure a few days, then sand and polish it out. After that hit the area with Future again to get the gloss back.

 

 I'm thinking that this is probably what I should do with the hair too.    Any thoughts or other recommendations?

That's what I do. Just be careful that you don't sand through the underlying paint. Sand slowly with fine grit and check often until you remove the offending object.

Thanks for the reply Modeling Bob.

 

Actually, I found an easier way at Swannys Models and gave it a shot, figuring that it was less risky than sanding.

Should you discover a run after the coat has dried simply use a cotton swab soaked in ammonia based window cleaner and gently rub the run until it has been removed - only takes a minute or two.

Instead of a Q-tip, I used an eye shadow makeup applicator to avoid any more fuzz (A small oval sponge at the end of a plastic stick) and soaked it in windex. I used this to rub the spot and remove the Future. Then I resprayed the spot. It blended smoothed out on it's own.  Lucky save. The Modeling Gods were smiling on me today.  🙂
