painting figures white question.

Posted in Custom Workstation

I'd rather not spray paint her all white and have to repaint the outfit and hair. Anyone have suggestions on how to get a nice even white skintone? Every time I brush white on it never covers well.

I've started to use automative spray paint, since it's readily available here in S.Korea at the local mega-stores. 2 or three thin coats, with a days drying time between in a well ventilated area, and it looks great.

Reading the replies, I think I'll definatley use the blue-tac suggestion for masking in the future.

Holy crap Jin is alive I'd just hit it with walmart gray primer and then flat white lol. I wish the white was aprimer. the spray primers make better paint that the non-primers.

My favorite white is now the Formula P3 white. Takes maybe 3 coats to cover even dark areas. However if the base is really dark, it's always good to primer that.

I was looking at the figure and I think it may be better to just spray paint her totally since the clothes and hair are the wrong color anyhow.

id suggest masking and spray paint or using a very thin coats of white, like watered down and painted a few times
