Akiosama Posted May 30, 2012 Share Posted May 30, 2012 Hello all, I bought an Additives Triad the a little while back - I think it was late March - and I was surprised at the consistency of the Brush-on Primer that came in it. I used it right away, and it didn't form drops out of the bottle, but rather it oozed out of the dropper, acting more solid than liquid - it reminded me of squeezing toothpaste from a tube, with it coming out of the bottle in a snake-like fashion rather than drops. Is this normal with the Brush-on Primer? It's just been difficult to measure water ratios with the primer acting like this, and with this being the first time I've used Reaper's Brush-on Primer, I'm not sure if the results I've had are typical for this product. It seems to cover metal ok, but on plastics - specifically the plastic used by Privateer Press - it doesn't cling to the miniature, rather it seems to bead like water on glass. (I'll be re-cleaning the pieces to ensure it's not some sort of release issue, but the PP minis seem to have a smooth, gloss-like finish on them that seems to repel the brush-on primer from sticking. I've had the same issue in the past with brush-on paints on my Gundam scale-models, if they're not spray primed first.) Any advice would be helpful - I like being able to prime by brush. I don't always have the time to spray paint - I usually get the bug to paint at odd hours. Thanks in advance! My 2 yen, Akiosama Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
