Whats the easiest color to paint for a first timer. Red? Black?
as the saying goes
"if it ain't right..paint it white"
^^ +1 ^^
Unless you are talking flat/matte then it is a little more forgiving.
If you have never painted before you want to stay away from black unless your body work is perfect
Easiest to spray? Black. Hardest to see what you are spraying? White. Hardest metallic control? Gold, followed closely by silver. Thinking white will hide bad bodywork? Kidding yourself.
white is the absence of color...therefore your eyes are trained to basically ignore it
because of this no one notices white body panels on a car....you're eyes will naturally gravitate to the wheels/stance/interior etc..anything but the white paint
If you say so. I have been doing bodywork and restorations since 1978. A wavy white car looks like a pile of crap to me. I see the waves and crooked body lines in any color and my eyes don't have any magic capabilities.
Sure agree with that. Easiest to spray might be a non-metallic medium gray or brown. Body work is the key. Block of wood and sandpaper, lots of elbow grease for the DIYer. Get it straight.
