Createx Colors 4040 Bleed Checker Non-reactive barrier

Use 4040 as non-reactive barrier over Candy2o or other Createx paints to inhibit bleeding. 4040 prevents dyes from migrating through top-coated colors, sealers and other Candy2o colors. 

To avoid bleed-through:

1. Always add 4030 Balancing Clear 30% or more per volume to Candy2o colors for improved flow & adhesion. 

2. Use 4040 as non-reactive barrier over Candy2o. DO NOT REDUCE.

3. Allow colors to dry matte before applying more coats.

    Bleed checker

    It is super nice to have a safety layer to assure what look you apply stays that way, it is a delicate process of layering, i like the assurance it will remain the way it is laid down! Createx is a solid company, glad i know about them.

    Don't Forget Bleed Checker after Candy

    Posted by Michael Kidd on Jan 09, 2021

    I recently started spraying the Createx Auto-air Candy2o paints and learned the hard way you need this 4040 Bleed Checker to keep the dyes from bleeding through any top coats. Without it, results are pretty unpredictable.

    Candy is Dandy BUT, use Bleed Checker

    Posted by Richard Voss on Aug 27, 2020

    Candy is great stuff, but don't forget to check it between layer, or you might get some "groovy" colors

    4040 Bleed Checker

    Posted by Ben Blankenship on Jul 06, 2020

    Ok, if your goin to be using Candy 2o then you NEED THIS PRODUCT! I didn’t think I would need it until I started experimenting with candys and base coats, lemme tell ya if you can learn how to use candy 2o in more ways than just a “top layer” then it will take your art to another atmosphere! But in order to do that you must have something to keep the candy from leeching or bleed through. 4040 Bleed checker is that soloution. Now if your using Candy 2o or any candies for matter you already know you must have patience. You need to apply 2-3 coats on each layer of candy after you have sprayed it down. Givin 5-10 min of dry time before starting the next coat. I’d say wait 15-20 mins before you start your next base color layer to give the 4040 time to adhere and dry. Awesome product!
