Time to let your artistic side emerge....your own design.

Looks to be fairy simple. I'm not into doing a fancy design, but it would be nice to customize it a bit. Thanks!

Rattle can and clear. Do not wet sand between coats of clear until you get to the top coat and need to rid the orange peel.

Good luck.

I've been told to do it between each coat by a guy who does furniture.

What's the reason for your way? I assume it just works better, but why, if you please?

I don't know about how other guy's paint. But I wet sand between each coat, color and clear. It produces a "tooth" for the next layer to bond to. I've been painting motorcycle helmets for over fifty years. They take a lot of abuse. Good sanding helps prevent chips. Land on pavement or gravel, nothing helps. Just sayin'

It keeps the clear coat clear. On a satin finish it wouldn't matter, but for a high gloss that looks deep, I only wet sand the final coat which will be finished with compound.

YMMV

On mobile so bare with me, I used duplicolor truck bed liner in the spray can. Prep just like paint, clean the area and tape off. 2-3 light coats for base then a full coat. At that time I do the grip sand and coat the entire area and spray another coat over that. Let dry for a HR or so and a few more coats and your done. Let dry for a day or so.

I would give it a test run on a dowel or hammer handle or something. It is pretty grippy, definitely not for everyone. With that said after some use the high points seem to wear down and it's pretty good.

If you give it a whirl let me know how you like it. Should be able to buy the spray and grip sand for under $20 at home Depot or similar.
