Hi guys i've built my new hero helmet and started painting it but finding hard. I've stripped back the bits i didn't like. Most problems happening are paint wrinkling up and paint not being flat. I'm a bit of a perfectionist so want it right........any tips before i go again?

I'm assuming you're using humbrols. Are you shaking and stirring the paint properly before use? That's really important. Other than that, if the paint is not really old, it should flow out evenly by itself.

I guess it could be a temperature/humidity issue as well, but as long as you're indoors and not in an unheated garage, that should be fine.
