I'm using white - specifically Hatteras off white 1990 from Interlux.  It's close to what Bill R used.

Ben,

 

I think you are onto something that will work.

 

What color are you using to paint the deck striping?

 

 

With best regards,

Not sure about accelerator but maybe a possibility.  I am using tool improperly per your comments.  I'm holding it closer to vertical than horizontal.  This is causing paint to drip out.  I'll try technique you suggest.  Also per 
Dave I may leave can open a while covered with mesh to allow some evaporation which will thicken paint.

Hi Ben,

 

Do you think an accelerator would help? https://www.jamestowndistributors.com/userportal/show_product.do?pid=98105&familyName=Quantum+99+Urethane+Accelerator

 

I am not sure you need to thicken the paint. It sounds like you need less of it on the application wheel. Are you using the tool so the barrel stays below the wheel? The tool should not be used upright. Ideally when using a pinstripe tool you want to illuminate as much gravity as you can. This will put less paint on the wheel. Also, if you put the non-paint end of the tool in the groove on the deck, it will help keep your line straight as you pull/push the tool to apply paint. Try this technique on a some paper first, it may be all you need.

 

 

With best regards,

 

Mark

Are you painting the deck stripes or boot stripes?

It's time to repaint my stripes. I'm using an available interlux poly-urethane paint. My problem is paint is too thin and dripping from roller on striper.  Can anyone recommend a thickening agent?  Current mixture is 50/50 Interlux Brightside single part enamel and Interlux flattening agent.  All suggestions welcome.
