Painting Blanks Before Glassing

Unread post by jbw4600 » Wed Aug 24, 2016 12:02 am

What do you guys think about painting blanks before glassing? I am worried about delamination. Has anyone problems with delamination? I am thinking about painting an eps blank.

In the past, I have done that with a poly blank with no problems.....

use a water based acrylic paint but it could still delam. maybe use a light color for the paint so it doesn't attract heat. I had a green and black railed airbrushed board and the rails would get hot when I would clean the wax off. if you leaving a board in your car maybe crack the windows to give some air flow.
