Default E-Tex

What causes E-Tex to wrinkle I just made 16 plugs and on about 8 of the plugs the e-tex wrinkled? On one of the 8 the effect looked good uniform size of the wrinkles made it feel and look like fish scale.

the paint under the e-tex is fine its just the e-tex thats screwed up. I use a e-tex seal and use delta cream coat for paint mixed with createx illustration base to thin it. I think that maybe I screwed up by wiping down the plug with DA and not letting it dry well enough before I e-texed it. Plus the heater was on at 110 before I realized it was that high and turned it off. Not sure what really happened but it happened to just a few plugs.

old dog are you sure it's not the paint under?? I'm betting there was a solvent in there somewhere that caused the wrinkling...It's pretty common on water based paints because it re-solvenates them..

This is the first it has happened, although this is only my third set of plugs, this has not happened on the other ones. I think the DA that I used to clean the plugs before e-texing was not completely dry. I am changing the method to something new. Now I will be sealing with e-tex, priming with Zinnser B-I-N in the red can, using createx paint for painting and KBS diamond clear coat for the finish. How do you think that will work?

I think you'll have to try it...kbs has solvents in it which may not work over other stuff...go REALLY thin on there and use their #1 thinner to cut it down some...it will bubble in any areas where the boating is too thick or where it puddles.
