Bones Black Prep and Priming

Recommended Posts

In the Reaper Live videos, it's been mentioned that most rattle primers are ok to use. But no one that I've seen has mentioned their results of spray priming their bones black, so I thought that I would post my results here. I hope that others will post theirs as well. 

 

Cleaning and prepping mold lines on bones black is very different than regular bones. I would compare it to other gaming companies hard plastic while still having a little bit more flexibility. 

 

So far I've used the following primers, I'll add to this list as I use new ones:

Krylon Colormaster White primer- quick drying time with light spraying, no stickiness, no granular texture associated with light dusting. The white stayed relatively white unlike on other plastic models. 

 

Rustoleum 2X Paint+Primer Satin Poppy Red- Smooth coverage, no texturing. However, after 24hrs is still slightly tacky to the touch. In places where I've scrapped mold lines away the plastic underneath is not tacky. I'll give it a few more days to cure and then I'll try stripping it and see how that goes. The tackiness maybe due to the satin primer rather than the more commonly used flat primer. ETU: 60 hrs and no change in the tackiness so I used isopropyl to strip it with no issues.

      Have painted up the free mini for this month. Lots of character, but not too much detail. Went for a 'goody' colour scheme.

      “Nah. Why?”
      “Well it’s just... it’s just that they’ve got skulls on them.”

       
      “Yeah... so?”

      Hello everybody,
      so once these came out in retail I was really pretty thrilled and bought some as soon as possible.  Now that I've taken photos I see tons of errors, but oh well, I'm probably not going to fix anything any more with these two.  
       
      I'd like to just mention that these two little gnomes were great fun to paint and as my second and third Bones Black figures that I've painted, I do enjoy working with the material.  I did prime them, and the only real issue I had was those first coats of primer, and also a first coat of paint sticking on the figure properly (yes I washed them before starting to paint). Also removing the flash was a bit different than removing flash from metal, but not a horrible inconvenience.
       
      Anyway, here they are, hope you enjoy them!
       

       
      and the lovely pair together:
