Dear forum, While doing research for my little hermit project (found here) I have been watching a lot of painting tutorials on youtube lately. I came across many techniques using rattle cans or even an airbrush and I would very much like to try some of those (like zenithal lighting or spraying on base coats and varnishes). Getting an airbrush would also be nice... Here is the problem though: I live in a rented apartment with no dedicated hobby room or even hobby table. There is no garden for me to use and the balcony just got redone this spring - with white tiles. I paint my minis at my desk and use a few layers of newspaper to protect it. Works great - as long as I use brushes, that is. I can't be the only one with a working space like this. So I am curious: How and where do you spray paint your minis? How do you protect walls and floor from the paint? I am especially interested to hear from all of you without a hobby room or a garden. Thank you for your ideas!
I stumbled on this while looking for something to prime my new foam terrain set. http://www.krylon.com/products/craft-foam-primer/ An internet search later and I found some locally, purchased and experimented. It says it creates a thin durable primed surface that seals the foam and makes it safe to spray with other aerosol paints. Well, it is definitely thin and is not going to hide any detail, I will apply two coats just to be safe. It dries pretty quick, this is two coats with one hour between coats then one hour to dry. Here is the true test, black aerosol spray paint.... ...and it worked. There is no bubbling, melting, deformation or even softening of the foam. For all of us foam using terrain-oholics out there we finally have a way to spray primer our terrain.
Hey there everyone! I am looking for a possible alternative spray paint for priming my miniatures that is comparable to the Dragon Red spray primer from the Army Painters line of sprays. If anyone has a favorite, tried and true, or just effective red primer of similar color that they could relay to me; I would appreciate it. Thanks in advance. -Fitz
