Why Molotow? Is it good paint or fast drying? Good for stencils? Just wondering, I never heard of it.

Quoted from Dono:

I try to paint cabs with minimal paint to achieve more of a flat look (no edge felt between base and secondary coats) that EMs sported from the factory.

That is what I was hoping. I've used automotive paint to stencil a cabinet before. It came out AWESOME and was easy as can be to work with. It dried in seconds and the stencil came right off. You can run your hand over the cabinet and not feel the edges at all. On the other hand it was hundreds of dollars for the paint! I've also used regular rattle cans of Rustoleum and it was awful to work with. The result was not bad and it was a lot cheaper, but pulling the stencils caused smearing and you can feel a distinct edge.

I appreciate the tip and just did a little research. Sounds like this stuff is what I should use next time I do a cabinet. I wonder how the "natural white" would do as the base coat on a Gottleib EM? I'll be ordering the color card.

Montana Shock white cream for the base

Thanks!! I was just looking at the Montana paints and noticed they have a lot more off-white colors.
