I'm read the threads and seen all the different labels...I'm pretty sure this is the new bottle in Canada and I just sprayed it on a test piece but figured id check and see if anyone knows if this is the correct one

1. multifinish formula-good
2.does the bottle indicate that it is acrylic?--if so, good
3.and.....it should NOT be recommended for wood floors
4. it should mix perfectly with water---no separation after the mix stands for any length of time.
5. if it is "ready to use--no mixing required", it already has water in it and you may not have to thin it to airbrush???, but if the instructions talk about mixing it with water, then you can cut it with water or thinner to airbrush it.

however:
the bottle bothers me becasue it shows a picture of a wooden floor---the formula made to use on wooden floors is NOT good for a modeling application.

one other test might be to let the test piece you sprayed dry, then spray on some paint? watch it for several days, rub the dried paint finish and see if it comes off, peels, etc. or does it scratch off easily? does it scratch off when you apply it over paint and it is dried rock hard?

best wishes!

So the back does say Acrylic Protection, says it's good for tile,vinyl and SEALED wood floors and when mixed with water there is no seperation and when sprayed out of the airbrush on the test piece sprayed really well..I tried painting over it and will check it out tomorrow but by the sounds of it this is the stuff! Thanks for the info [smile]

I reckon that would be it. The stuff I use is clear like that, and all the wording is the same on the label, I have a pic somewhere, hang on. ...



I reckon you're good to go. [smile]
