Adding the Last Pigment Color

See how you are adding pigment on here, didnt it make a lip between your hotcoat and the black pigment you added on top? Or when you added you gloss coat did you level out?

The black pigment did give an edge. When hardened, I sanded it lightly to bring it down being careful not to sand the edge off completely. The gloss coat after that did fill in the edge slightly but still had a slight edge to it. But, by doing it this way, you'll get a strong crisp line.

love your blog. Did you add another layer of glass for the black nose or just pigment? and what grits did you sand your hot coat with?

Thanks! Yah, after I did the hot coat with white, I then masked and added the black.
