rustoleum paint...dusty???

ok I want to go get some hunter green by the pint from lowes and thin it out so it can be sprayed with my sprayer, to paint my new DD, a friend told me thinning wouldnt be that much of an issue, but when it dries it will have this dust outter to it, as in saying everytime you brush up against it, it will leave hunter green marks on you...is this true?

Re: rustoleum paint...dusty???

I have never heard of such a thing from thinning paint. I'm not saying its not possible, just never seen or
experianced it.

Billy is this flat? flats can get chalky as they oxidize, but thinning shouldn't make it worse.

My experiance with thinning is that it dries faster the thinner it is. Sounds backwards, but thats what I have
experianced,

Re: rustoleum paint...dusty???

same here, he was saying rustoleum is chalky period, I just wanted to use hunter green, or that safety orange by the pint to paint my new dd (which are both gloss paints), but I figured rustoleum might be to thick to be thinned down in order to use a sprayer? I think it would be a much cheaper option then using car paint, they have many options in colors by the pint, and I have everything spray compressor and place to spray just gotta find out if it could be used [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

First time I ever heard that one. In one of the old shops we painted old work trucks with the industrial rustoleum enamel and used enamel reducer with it. Never new of it getting chalkey, we just washed them and drove em. We got it buy the gallon.
