Primer vs Ink zenethal

Recommended Posts

!!! Ok Al Capwn is a saviour! Turns out... I did shake it, like a bunch... well it needed another minute of it. There was indeed barely any pigment. It sprays perfectly now :D! Thanks everyone!

Using white acrylic ink for the zenithal highlight layer was a learning process for me too. I've had the best results with a .3mm needle brush at low pressure, instead of the .5mm brush I use for Stynylrez. Now you got me thinking that maybe I'm just not shaking up the ink enough. Very helpful tip.

The heaviest I go is 25-30 psi for spraying Stynlyrez primer from Badger, straight from the bottle. You could thin it, but I find I do not need to, and I love the way it coats already. I cannot recommend this stuff enough, and it's worked great with every material I've tried it on from resin to metal to Bones.

 

Sorry for the slight derail. Just a quick question. I just started airbrushing and am currently just priming as I build up my control. With the Stynylrez I noticed the primer was very wet and took quite a while to dry. Is this normal or did I just over apply it? I initially put a bit of thinner in (which would explain it if Stynylrez doesn't need thinning) but then was going straight primer. Was at about 15 psi fwiw.

I haven't been thinning the Stynylrez for the airbrush and it seems to work pretty well at 15psi. Unthinned it seems to dry pretty quickly for me, but I live in the arid high plains, so my experience might differ from yours.

 

I will say that the airbrush needs quite a bit of cleaning after a priming session; the Stynylrez is very sticky.

I also use the stynylynyrdskynyrdrez primer unthinned, and it dries pretty well. I'm pretty sure it's designed to be used this way, so it's probably the thinner. (but you do also want to apply a fairly thin coat)

I use Stynylrez unthinned as well. It's recommended to use a 0.5mm nozzle for this. However, I'm using a 0.3mm with 30psi. It goes on smoothly and dries quickly. I'm in Seattle, so it's definitely not dry and arid around here.

Well, initially it no doubt had to do with the thinner. Later on I am guessing I was just over applying then. More experimentation forthcoming!
