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.

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.

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.

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....
      Cinder didn't work out for my return to hobbying, so I decided to try something a bit less ambitious....
       
      Reading back through past projects, I saw one of the hangout minis of the month was Blacktounge, Gnoll Ranger from Reaper, and remembered that I had picked up this set at a paint day with the New England Miniatures folks at the Citadel games store....
       
      I figure if I can follow my old WIP, I won't be stressing to much, and I will have another figure to add to the Frostgrave warband that was started so long ago,,,,
       
      So the 2 got assembled and puttied, and now the never ending search for minor mold lines can begin when the putty is dry...
       
      thanks for taking a look!
      Wish me luck!!!!

      SO....
       
      Due to Brain Weasels and other Real Life Issues, I haven't been doing much, really almost no, fantasy painting...
      One of the things I have been doing is looking at old WIPs, and suddenly the desire to paint a DRAGON, came over me....
       
      So here is the start of my new work on Cinder, #10014, in METAL...
       
      Hopefully, I can keep up the sudden burst of enthusiasm....
       
      So planning on mold line hunting, and trying to decide what color to paint this dragon...
      As I am old school, the webbing between the back spines is leading me to green, but need to check the books to see which way to go....
       
      About time you returned from the place I couldn't reach you minion......
       
      OMG, please not again....

      any and all comments gratefully ignored....

      GW Scorched Brown in his eyes, Reaper Linen white, WC One Coat Blue, then SC 75 Arabic Shade overall.
