    Good post. I'm in the midst of having some pretty horrendous reactions of Createx to Spraymax 1k (wrinkling) and it appears that I did not allow enough time for the Createx to cure. What struck me is that where I used Wicked Colors vs Createx I had much better result s.

    Quoted from Leveeger:

    I believe this linked to the clear and not because of the paint... For all I have read, 1K is definitely not a convenient solution for pf. Please have a deep look on VID's thread for pf restorations...

    I discovered the issue is that Createx (but any acrylic) can't be "sandwiched" between a bottom AND a top coat of Spraymax 1k. The top coat of clear seams to interact with the bottom coat causing some contraction of the bottom layer which then causes the wrinkling.
