I have seen many reviews for this and similar fluorescent yellow paints where the users have experienced disappointing results. Lots of people have commented about such paints being runny and giving poor colour coverage. If you do not prepare the item properly, that will happen.

However, having done some experiments before committing, I have achieved what I feel is an excellent finish with depth of colour. Below is my process for achieving a very bright and solid day-glow yellow.

1 Prime the item with a couple of coats of white primer so you have an even white base. The primer I used allowed me to do this with about 15 mins between coats.

2 Apply a couple of coats of "Plant Yellow" (RAL 1018) or something similar in colour to give a solid yellow. Allow this to dry for 24 hours

3 Apply 2 or more coats of the fluorescent yellow paint. The more the better. You will notice straight away just how bright this will be.

4 After your final coat of yellow, leave for 30 mins and then apply an even coat of the Holts clear lacquer. You will now have a fantastic eye popping yellow.

5 Leave to harden for as long as possible. The can advises it can take up to 7 days.

Note:
I tried a test on applying this direct to a black surface - Could barely see any difference other than the black now having a slight yellow sheen. DO NOT EVEN BOTHER TRYING TO COVER DARK SURFACE
I tried applying this to a white primer base - The resulting colour was quite weak and pale even after a few coats. In my opinion this gives a poor finish..
