Touching up oil based primer with water based primer.. bad idea?

4 posts in this topic

I have a mini that I primed using Krylon primer (spray on oil based I believe). However, before I got around to painting it I realized that I wanted to make some additional modifications to the mini (with green stuff). In addition, I noticed the primer got rubbed off in a few areas.

 

I don't want to spray the entire mini with primer again, so I was thinking of touching it up using some of Reaper's paint on primer. Will this probably work without any issues, or is it bad to mix different types of primer on the same mini?

As long as the other primer is dry you'll be fine. I use to do it all the time before switching to 100% paint on primer.

Cool, thanks for confirming that! I'm glad that I'm not going to have to go through a big hassle to finish this thing.

 

Honestly, I'm starting to think about switching totally to paint on primer myself. It is too easy to miss spots or have mishaps with the spray on stuff.

More likely than not, it is fine. In general you shouldn't put water over oil, but this should be fine. But, hey, I never prime. All I do is a black wash and block in color followed by shading down and tinting up.
