Having heard all the "Don't paint your Saturn V with Krylon" warnings:

I sprayed on a coat of "Painter's Touch" gloss white. Went on fine over
Krlyon primer, looked great, I think "Hey, Rustoleum's good stuff."

24 hours later, I sand out some dust spots and spray another coat on...

... and I get a bunch of wrinkles! Not everywhere - mostly the really
hard to sand places.

The can says recoat within 1 hour or after 24... the only thing I can
think of is that the recoat window is a little longer then they claim.
Especially where the paint is thick. Can I avoid this problem by waiting
more than 24 hours?

The only other thing that touched the rocket was a tack cloth, but I
wiped the rocket pretty thoroughly with the cloth before the 1st coat &
the 1st coat went on fine.

Oh well.. back to the sanding board... and probably to Krlyon "recoat
anytime" for my next project. Any thoughts appreciated.

> Hi Jeffrey,

Rustoleum can be a real pain in the ass! As for my experience's I would let
it sit a week in between coats. I have trashed up several really nice
paint jobs by applying the second coat too early. This paint has to totally
dry out before the second app. If you don't really need that specific
color stick to krylon. You can get a really nice finish after about 6 to 8
coats. Krylon has been much more user friendly for me.

Good luck.

Yep... It is a feature.

I think it should have said that you should recoat after 1-3 hours
or 4-5 days. If you don't do it within 3 hours, it must *COMPLETELY*
dry.

Yes. The problem is the paint was only sort of really dried.

Rustoleum isn't the only paint with this problem. Just about any other
paint I have tried on my rockets will do this.

I normally use Krylon and have never had a problem. After finishing my 6"
Mercury Redstone I received some Rustoleum painters choice for free..........so
I thought I would give it a try. The white went on nicely. Now I masked it off
the next day and sprayed the black. WHAT A MESS! Wrinkles all over but mostly
in the fillet area. I finished this rocket the day before I left for LDRS to
use as a display for my new kit. When I get more time I will sand it down and
try again. Oh well.........live and learn.

I don't care for 'Rustoleum' because it's so heavy, and I've
experienced results similar to the one you mentioned. Krylon is great
stuff and is available in a wider selection of colors. However, I
prefer 'Plasti-kote' Ultra Enamel. It's a sort of epoxy paint and
behaves like Krylon, but once it's dried you can't hardly remove it
with anything but a hammer. I used to buy it at Checker Auto Parts but
Pep Boys sells it now.

I've never used Rustoleum on rockets, so I cannot comment on it in that
application.

The paint I've had good luck with is the Ace brand, available at the
local Ace hardware store. It comes in a reasonable variety of colors
and is a LOT less expensive than Krylon, etc. I've had good luck with
2nd and 3rd coats on it, too.

At the risk of enhancing my reputation as a contrarian, I will say that I like
Rustoleum (the regular kind - haven't used Painter's Touch.) I did have a
problem with wrinkling one time but I think I have the hang of using it now. My
secret is to not wait a long time between coats. I got this idea from someone
in this forum.

Start with a fully cured primer coat. The first paint coat is very light
leaving a very blotchy appearance. After five minutes of drying (70F, light
wind) I apply a second, slightly heavier coat concentrating on the thin areas.
After five or ten minutes a third, more thorough coat is applied. Finally,
after another five to ten minutes I apply a heavy coat making sure all surfaces
are left glossy wet. Then the piece goes into the shed where hopefully
temperatures will exceed 80 or 90F over the next 24 hours. The piece can then
be handled gently but I think it takes several days or even a week or two for a
complete cure. This has produced the best finishes that I have achieved so far.

The early light coats seem to prevent the final coat from sagging or running.

I've used it extensively and have had great results. But I do my recoats
within the 1 hour window. Otherwise I wait a week (weekend to weekend).

I've always avoided Rustoleum after using it a few years ago for a
half-dozen cans or so for two reasons, unless I can't get Krylon in a
similar color:

1) The Rustoleum seems to be very prone to plugging the nozzle midway
through the can no matter how much shaking you do before and during. Kind of
a PITA to be halfway through a rocket and have to go out and get another can
of the same thing because the first one plugged up. (Obviously twice as
expensive that way, too).
2) It takes a LOT longer to dry. With Krylon I can handle the rocket in a
few hours, with Rustoleum the next day, minimum. Of course both should be
left for at least a week for good curing, but the Krylon's much faster to
keep working with, IMHO.

I've always had great luck with Krylon; Len's had good luck with Rustoleum.
'Spose it's all a matter of personal taste, but I definitely lean toward the
Krylon.

With Rustoleum read the can to get more accurate but I think you must apply
a second either in less than X time OR youmust wait to AFTER x time (which i
think is 48 or 72 hours if you miss the X time after first coat)

But if you apply the second coat within say 1-2 hours you will be fine too.
BUT once you pass that early time YOU MUST wait until it is fully dry

Otherwise it is most wonderful paint. Very nice coating and hard to run
Nice finishes. ALthough it if you put it on too thick is may not run but it
will take anywhere from forever to never to full dry it always seems to be a
little soft for a LOOOOOONG time

I just want to add that the Rustoleum Metalics paint seems to be quite
different from the rest of the Rustoleum branded paints. It drys quite
quickly, wet sands well, and can be overcoated as soon as it's dry.
Make sure to shake the can well or the flakes will come out all at once
and you flock your rocket...

I use Painter's Touch whenever I actually PAINT a rocket. (Mark Simpson told me
NEVER to paint a rocket before its first pass.) GOTSTA, GOTSTA, GOTSTA, do a
hair dryer or (low setting) heat gun between coats, though. Makes all the diff.
in the world. Killer coats...

FWIW, you can pick up an inexpensive heat gun at Hobby Town -- I got one
for $19.99 the other day. Does a GREAT job on its low setting on 3M
window seal kits...

Gonna use that puppy to help kick off epoxy when I fiberglass tubes.
Used a hair dryer last time and it helped reduce the drying time a bit.

It accelerates the paint curing process. I said 'hair dryer' because a
heat gun, while the better 'tool', generates scads of heat and requires
a lighter touch and assurance you don't locally overheat a spot (it
could delaminate the airframe).

Here's a synopsis (assuming a ready-to-paint airframe):

-Light primer coat

-Heat and 'dry' paint throughout EVENLY (NOTE:paint is NOT dry when the
exposed part seems to be; the lower paint strata are still curing and
need a little bit of time to cure. The ROT I use is that when the
airframe seems to have returned to room temperature (by touch), I move
on.

-LIGHT!!! sanding with 320 or higher sandpaper. Although I don't
necessarily recommend it, I've laid three light coats of primer and two
coats of color on a rocket without sanding and it looked pretty
spankin'. In my guesstimate, sanding between coats may lend to more
longevity. But it can be done otherwise.

-Repeat as many (or few) primer coats with a subsequent 'curing' cycle
of even heat.

-After last coat of primer allow to sit at room temp. for several hours,
then lightly sand with fine sandpaper, wipe with a tack cloth (a clean
cotton T you ain't usin' no mo' follows the tack cloth nice, too) and
spray on a light color coat.

-Do alternating color coats/heat curing cycles until you like how it
looks or you're sick of doing it.

It's nice to know that you listened to my painting (or lack thereof) advice. Now,
to really surprise you, I do paint...occasionally, and I PREFER Rustoleum to Krylon
every time. No contest. Rustoleum hides better, runs less, give higher gloss with
less work and dries to a harder shell. What else could you ask from a rattle can?

IIRC, Rustoleum has a warning to apply a second coat within
(20 minutes, 2 hours?) or not within about 48 hours. Wrinkling
is the price for nonconformance. It's a pain.

You'd have to be REAL masochist to ever want to paint contact paper.
Besides, how on earth would I get such realistic wood-like appearances
on my rockets using paint? Don't answer, it was a rhetorical question.

I am considering doing a 5.5" diameter rocket using wood veneer in

That should be fun but you really need to find some of the most annoying

I know this is old but figured I would share for others looking this up. I have been painting professionally for over 10 years. The main problem is in using a rattle can. Many brands will get the wrinkle problem. In a rattle can, there is much more solvent to reduce the paint. If the solvents from the previous layer haven't completely released, the next coat will melt the coat below it. Also, oil/alkyd can take up to 30 days to fully cure. I prefer uerathane whenever possible. It is best to do all coats within an hour of each other, or if you do wait 24+ hours, do a couple light coats first and then do your final wet coat. The best way to get good results though is to ditch the rattle can and use an hvlp spray gun. You can get a setup at Harbor Freight for very inexpensive. You will save on paint for all future projects as well, as rattle cans are more expensive for the actual amount of paint you get in them. Hope this helps someone.

Hi,
I have found Rustolem to be a good paint,BUT it doesn't dry quickly and if you put it on kinda thick YOU got to wait until you cannot SMELL any solvents coming from it,about double the time for both paint and primer.
So put it all on at one time or several small coats,and leave it alone,IF you going with a clear coat,do ALL the sanding when in primer,not in color or clear
I spray a test piece at the same time ,and wait until it's not tackie sometime twice as long as recommended.
and smell for solvents,if you smell them leave it alone for a while longer,because it isn't dry yet,
I spray guitars and screw one of those up and learn to let it dry.
Krylon and all the others will wrinkle too.So no thick coats,
My best application is 2 light coats of color and wait at least a hour then 3/4 of a wet coat,most of the time it will dry glossed out,a full heavy wet coat and it most likely krinkle,
I do use a fan to help dry the paint and DO wear a mask when spraying (read warnings on can) brain seizures,headaches ect.
BEST of LUCK !

Rustoleum. is junk. You have to let it dry for at least 48 hours before re-coating and if you sand it another 24 after sanding. Krylon works much better.

I have used Painters Touch, mostly because I like their high build sandable primer. But yea, it takes at the minimum, 24 hours to dry to the point of being able to do anything with it after your final coat... I had to leave it for almost a week indoors just to so it would not be slightly tacky. Had great results with it as long as you don't go to thick on a single coat and you recoat within an hour. I could recoat within 10 min without too much issue. Just dont touch the damn thing

regarding the nozzle plugging up halfway..i get longer life by clearing it with a few bursts on a can of clear inbetween sessions. i also remove all nozzles on purchase and use a single one on all colours until it dies on me.. then move on. never had to buy new nozzles

In my experience, spray paint wrinkles no matter what brand, if you don't shake it long enough to mix the paint and you need to spray thin coats. Basically, follow the directions on the can.

The spray can of RUST-OLEUM PAINTER'S Touch clearly states, on the back of the can: "APPLY SECOND COAT WITHIN 1 HOUR OR AFTER 48 HOURS" - not 24 hours, as you had indicated! I, too, had the same problem w/paint blistering out on me ... Definitely NOT a pretty picture! -Dean Enterline, from Chambersburg, PA 17202.

Every 2nd coat makes it wrinkle with rust ileum never have that problem with krylon. I'll never buy rustoleum again. It's a fucking pain in the ass.

I use rustoleum and you have to be extremely patient with it… you MUST let it dry for at least a day, if not 2 before trying again.

OR

Your coats must be within 15 min of each other…

But if you are sanding, you absolutely have to wait at least 2 days…. I wait a week… then I sand… and reapply the coat

The patience pays off, as the coating is very very glossy.

Airbrushing might be what's needed...with a "Future" or similar acrylic
floor finish top coat.

Just got off the phone with the Rust oleum tech support. Im trying to paint a motorcycle tank but the paint keeps krinkleing and has to be sanded off eaven after sitting for a week. Was told the " recoat within the hour or after 48 hours " Was under laboratory conditions and I should be recoating no longer than 4 minuits apart or after 14 days with a fan blowing on the tank Would have been nice to know befor I wasted 2 spray cans and sanded down the tank 4 times. Will be avoiding RUST OLEUM in the future and I dont know anybody who paints in a labratory.
