I'm having trouble getting a smooth white with a black undercoat/primer.
I've resorted to drying brushing the final coat of skull white just to get a somewhat smooth coat. Are there any tricks for doing white? If I water it down the consistency and coverage becomes horrible, whereas if its took thick it tends to obscure details and get very blotchy or the my paint strokes become very apparent.
Cervantes: In order to attain the impossible, one must attempt the absurd.
Dry brushing is the worst way to get a smooth white... You want a smooth white, it must be very fluid... and a few coats.
Basically, if it is thick enough that your brush strokes are visible after laying down a layer, then it is too thick... You almost want the white to flow off the brush and onto the plastic. (or pewter)
as previously pointed out there are already a few threads going on about this but to give the answer again:
many many thinned coats (we're taking 4+ coats usually)
