1⁄35The Future Is Klear
Part fill the disposable container with clean water. Decant the Klear into the film canister. Ensure that the painted surface is clean and free of dust by using the tack rag. Dip the brush into the Klear, to about half way up the bristles and remove most of it by scraping the bristles over the edge of the container of water. (The water is there to prevent the container from tipping over and for rapid cleaning of the brush) Don't scrap off the Klear on the edge of the film canister, it will dry and contaminate the contents with unwanted bits.
Now carefully paint the Klear onto the model, work in stages and don't rush. The amount on the brush will cover between 60%-100% of a 1/48-scale wing of a WWII fighter, possibly more. If you rush you will cause small bubbles to form around detail and edges. If bubbles do form, they must be removed or when they dry you will have a mess. You will also get these bubbles if you lift the brush off the surface. To remove them go over the area again, carefully. Sometimes you will need a brush free of Klear to get rid of the bubbles. If this is the case then swish the brush around in the water and squeeze the bristles between your fingers, to remove most of it and go over the bubbles. If the Klear has started to dry it may be necessary to re-load the brush, with Klear, but remove as much as possible. Then go over the bubbles, this will remove them. Do the undersurface first, wash your brush thoroughly, leave the model for about 10 minutes, then apply a second coat. Leave the model for 15 to 30 minutes, for handling, then using the same method do the uppersurfaces. Again do two coats, leaving about 10 to 15 minutes between coats. Of course you can do as many coats as you like, but I have never done more than two coats, before decalling and two coats after decals.
