I got a bottle of Badger Stynylrez primer in my Reapercon swag bag, as did those of you that got one, and I just tried it out on some 1/4" blue insulation foam for a project the other evening, and it did NOT eat the foam in any way, shape, or form.

 

I shot it through my airbrush, thinned about 50% with W&N Flow improver and water....

Is the propellant in rattlecans that's usually to blame for eating foam.  Vallejo, Badger, Reaper and other brushable/airbrushable should all be safe assuming you don't put anything too harsh in as a thinner.

Everybody here is sick of me saying this, I'm sure. But those Liquitex spray paints do not eat foam. You can freely spray them right from the can.

At about 25-30 psi, I spray the badger stynylrez straight from the bottle. Great adhesion and coverage without loss of detail.

 

Maybe I should try it out with water or airbrush medium and see if there are differences in adhesion. Something to consider when I get back home.

And here I used my Stynylrez primer as paint-on primer on my Bones instead of Reaper liner.

 

I thought I was being original. :down::poke:

I'm about to order some of this magic plastic primer and am debating between a set of six colors (black, gray, white, olive, yellow, and red-brown), the set of three (black, gray, and white), or just a larger bottle of a single color.  My concern is that if I get one of the multipacks some of them may sit unused until I find a need for them.  Any input on how well it reacts to long periods of neglect?

I spray straight from the bottle (well shaken) at 12psi or less.

Paasche VL .556 needle (1 grove), 25psi straight from the bottle.  No issues.  Recommendation is directly from Badger Rep whom I spoke to at AdeptiCon.

 

I usually go black primer and then highlight with grey.  I have not had a chance to use their colored primers but I am interested in their metal colored version.

So I've been using the Black and grey primers, and my .3mm Grex does NOT like them uncut....

Even at 20+psi....

Works great cut 50% with water though....

My attempt to prime with my GREX required so much cleaning of the airbrush that I went back to brush priming. I have debated buying a cheap Harbor Freight airbrush for priming...

I have to say that after hearing about difficulties folks are having using this primer in the various types of airbrushes I'm glad that I have switched over to Badger. I do have a cheap harbor freight airbrush that I intended to use for priming but I don't like how it handles so I ended up priming with the Velocity instead.

      So as a lot of folks around these here electronic parts know, I have barely hobbied since ReaperCon, due to brain weasel infestation...
      So for the past few days, I have tried to ease my way back in by working on 'risers' for my display case...
      These are chunks of blue insulation foam, cut to fit on my table saw (what a mess it makes!)
      Then sprayed Grey with Stynylrez primer through my airbrush.
       
      Overall case:

      Started life as the 'wings' of an entertainment center, and I added the LED lights scavenged from work...
      Left side is still in progress... (Top to bottom)



      A lonely DDS2
      a bare section that I sprayed the foam for tonight (The ex suggested that I put figures with a special value to me in it, old characters and such, likely, exchanges and gifts will end up in there as well, and the first 25mm mini that I ever painted. Rest will be underground critters and whatever else I can cram in there to get them off my bookcases....)
      Frostgrave terrain and warbands...
       
      Right side:



      Top is Demons and devils, Undead and pillars, and some of my medal wining Reapercon stuff
      Middle is some bigger things...
      Bottom is Giants and wilderness type critters....
       
      Thanks for taking a peek!

      An Australian documentary about the Bristol Beaufighter serving in the South West Pacific during WWII...
       
      Interesting for an American to see something like this, as most documentaries I see are either American, or British....

      Hey folks looking for some advice on a project I am hoping to accomplish for Reapercon '18...
       
      It won't let me quote in the 1st post, so the next will have the links...

      So....
       
      Back when I first joined the forums, I found a thread about a certain Goblin painting a limited edition Ral Partha figure that I happened to own, but had been sitting in a box for 15-20 years due to the 'I'm not good enough' syndrome....
       
      Well I decided that I Was Good Enough and set to work, as chronicled by this
      so as at the time of being a noob arround here, I was very encouraged by the multiple responses that I got....
      such as:

      so....
       
      The painting funk has lasted for 4 months, and I need to get my cranium out of my anal orifice and start painting again....
      Posted Thursday at 09:46 PM So....
       
      While on the hangouts with some folks that play 40K, we have been talking about stuff, and I went to look for a figure that I knew I had, and didn't want, that @Chaoswolf thought was cool, and found the following:

      Now this is the basis for my mechanical Obliterators that I painted way back in 2003? and brought to Reapercon last year

      where they got a silver medal in the open category
       
      Speaking with one of the judges afterwards (@dks) we discussed them, and the painting dragged them down, as I said old paintjob...
       
      Well, with my painting funk in its 4th month, I was thinking that maybe, I could re do a new one from scratch, and with all the sculpting things I have learned, as well as painting techniques, I might be able to do better...
       
      Now Reaper forbids entering the same piece twice, but this would be a reprisal of something I did years ago....
       
      Would this be legal as a new entry?
      @Heisler care to comment?
       
      George
       
      @Heisler's response
      As long as the entry is an entirely new piece and not one of those three then it would be a perfectly legal entry.
       
      My response...
      thanks @Heisler
      really hoping this will kick out the brain weasel painting funk!
       
      For some reason, I couldn't cross quote so....
       
      It's gonna be ugly for a while....
       
      the raw components:

      lots and lots of surface grinding with the Dremel tool, and sore fingers.....
       
      But hopefully, I've learne a bit about painting and sculpting since I did those guys, and this time, there will be only one....
