I havnt got the container on me and need to go to an art shop etc on my lunch break so that I can touch/paint my bike tonight. I need either an oil or water based brush so i need to find out what this paint is. http://www.halfords.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/product_storeId_10001_catalogId_10151_productId_160691_langId_-1_categoryId_98709

I don't think a lot of people know what you mean, they think all paint is oil based, the fact is you mean cellulose or water, I think Halfords went over to water based in 2007, check with them. It is now illegal to sell more than a certain amount of cellulose, I don't know if this applies to individuals or the seller, I was told both but it is getting increasingly difficult to get cellulose based paints since the law changed in Jan 2007.

Spray a bit, if it smells like pear drops its x% solids/x% thinners. Pretty sure they don't make water based in a rattle can.

How big an area do you need to cover by the way? Anything more than 1cm2 (ie stone chips) then I would say don't bother with a brush. The flash off time on solvent based automotive paint is so low it'll be like trying to paint with treacle.

Its a rattle can. I want to paint about 0.5cm by 0.5cm. I might just get the paint brush 2moro after i have read the can

I saw that but i was thinking....a pen? Dos it come out good? where I have scuffed it has gone down to the black undercoat so would this still be ok? I wolud probably get a bit darker than that colour as it is a little on the orange side
