Base Paint??

Posted in Custom Workstation

What kind of paint do you guys use as base paint? Do you guys use tamiya paints? I just think that I might lose an entire bottle of paint if I use it as a base coat.

Help will be appreciated!

Just stick RIT dye tutorial in your search engine, there's a few great ones out there that have made me want to give it a go. I would post a few links but I don't wanna upset anyone by posting links before I ask. That's the just the good guy in me.

How do you die plastic?

Heat it up and dip it in ink(for soft plastic), for hard plastic brush the ink on or use permanent markers. These methods work best with dark collars and won't work at all with bright colors like yellow or white.

I like to die the plastic if possible for the base coat(using ink). If that isn't an option than I use model masters because they are very sturdy.

I use citidale and reaper, but mainly citidale. Valijo is good as well.
