vinyl spray

Posted in Custom Workstation

I've recently been searching forums and came upon this tip about using vinyl spray as a base coat as its supposed to help paint stick better, does anyone know if this work or are these people just talking rubbish.

vinyl dye / paint is OK. It's really most useful for parts made out of rubber like clothing, capes, coats, loinclothes - for those it's dynamite. For use on figures - well I guess it depends on how well you can use aerosol spray cans. I don't like using spray paints in general because you just don't have that much control over it and it can make a big mess. If you have a well ventilated paint booth then it might be easier to use 'em. I have only my backyard.

Samuron over at Fwoosh uses vinyl dye for a lot of stuff. He has a Daredevil that he used it on - but that's a one color figure - not so hard.

I used vinyl dye on my Shang Chi custom - and it came out ok but like I said it was messy to use and kind of a PIA.

One general consensus is that it's a bit more tougher than acrylic paint and more resistant to paint rub but it can still get rubbed or scratched off.
