jonbryon Posted March 20, 2019 Share Posted March 20, 2019 I am using kitchen foil to cover a Monogram 1/48 F-80C. I am using cheap, thin foil, not suitable for baking. I am using Microscale Foil adhesive and following the instructions. I am applying the glue to the less shiny side of the foil. I am applying the glue using a dropper and then brushing it with a 1" brush. I am having this problem: the glue is 'fish-eyeing', where after being applied smoothly with a wide brush holes or gaps open up in the glue layer. I have tried the following to alleviate this: 1. Thin the glue with a little 100% IPA 2. Thin the glue with a little water. 3. Clean the foil with white spirit (mineral spirits) prior to applying glue 4. Clean the foil with 100% IPA prior to applying glue. None of these make the situation better or worse. Applying glue to large or small pieces makes no difference. Has anyone else had this problem and have any tips on how to solve it? Many thanks Jon Quote Link to post Share on other sites
