As a matter of fact I'm really upset,  the primer came out a bit gritty on this one.

 

Normally I use GW spray paint never a problem, now i bought a can of Army Painter Primer..

 

I will tackle Bonnie soon, this is NOT a smooth layer...

I noticed that it looked gritty, but wasn't sure if it was the camera or what was going on. Maybe you need to shake the can bit bit more?

Oh, I didn't notice how clumpy that was until I blew the pic up. Is army painter primer sandable? Might be best remove it and start again. This is why I stopped using spray primer. Not enough control.

 

 

Well I did some damage control.

 

I took my Dremel and used a polish tool. It worked fine till the Dremel got really hot and the cover started melting :grr:

So, off to the store for a new Dremel. :wacko:

 

I polished Bonnie back to normal, did the same thing with Maria and KY-RA on the parts where it was needed.

No pics from that. I will brush on primer soon to correct it.

 

Suffice to say, yeah for the Dremel... although sad that my old one died in the process. :blink:

 

This week I don't have much time.

But soon.soon they will get their new primer and then things will get serious.

 

Hope y'all will have patience enough to follow these WIP's I paint slow!!!

 

On the primer topic.. never had this problem with citadel spray cans,. I will shake the can more and try a test piece first next time.

Should that be gritty again then no more Army Painter spray for me.

Although the antishine does work..

You stripped all the primer off Bonnie with a Dremel?  What kind of polisher bit are you using?  I seldom do stripping with a power tool, though I've done prep work occasionally.

 

For a full paint strip, I use a chemical like Simple Green, etc.  I've used W&N Brush Cleaner when I want it to work faster, but I don't usually do that except for little bits that Simple Green doesn't get.

I will post a pic of it soon. Its  a very small metal brush.. Use it on a low setting and keep it light. Have patience and let the tool do its work.

It strips fine, just be careful not to apply pressure, especially when it comes to fine detail.

Noses and such I only touch so lightly...
