i use the dx840 for large color blends and the rattle can for small blends. both work well.
also, you will get better blending results by makeing sure you clean the blend area very well. i like to clean mine by starting with detailer clay, then a good wash, followed up by compounding.





Please re-read my original post I'm not having issues color blending..... clear blending....I don't or "haven't" had to use a color blending agent ever....clear coat blender is the original reference. On a side note I used the aerosol can ppg blender for clear and when I repeadetly coated until it was shiny and no line visible it came out ok, I really really saturated it though. Following the directions it says a couple coats.....(more like 5 heavy coats) but at the end it says repeat until desired finish is achieved...so I kept wetting and wetting till it came out..

sorry, i see why you thought i meant color what i meant was clear blender.
for color blending you would ue dbc500 clear color blender.
what i reference to is clear coat blender.
those are the two products when i need to blend my clear coat in.
