I can agree with that. Oh and GJ, I wouldn't relly mind primer on a figure when arbrushing cause the color coat is so thin anyway, thus making it waaker too, so really it may be a good idea.

Now lets stop giping about primer..lol.. Sorry GJ, great Tut.

Hello,

Primer paint on plastic figure is really only necessary when making a drastic change of color going from dark to white, for example as for most figure are not very porous and are not easily damaged by moisture or when a long lasting coat of paint is desired. An important point for choosing primer pint for plastic is making sure the primer's propellant or solvent will not dissolve or warp the plastic part itself. I guess the best way to understand your paint is testing it on hidden part of your figure.


Take Care Guys
Bye :-)

Primer is great if it's actually going to make the paint stay-on forever, it's just not great in joints because of the thickness.

Because it adds too much thickness to the paint and causes more joint rub IMO. If your figure is washed well enough and your using desent paint. I think primer is pretty pointless. Sometimes brush on primer is good, but I would never put anything on my figure that came from a spray can, thats why I stoped using sealer.
