Do you have a walkthrough or can you give me a summary of how you did it how long it took?
It lasts after mixing about 2 weeks or so. There's no huge rush to get it sprayed for fear of it hardening up on you. I only used one color so I can't answer that one.
The process is pretty basic. Degrease using the stuff supplied in the kit, mask off anything you don't want to paint. Mix the paint as instructed, attach the propellant can and spray just like a rattle can. Start to finish it took about 2 1/2 hours but as I said, I was using one color. I'd imagine you'd need to spray your base color, let it dry then spray your other colors letting each dry.
