Hi, new painter here. Just bought an OK battalion and decided to start painting. I had a buddy show me how to prime and the basics to painting.
Well I went solo and primed a couple of models and I seem to have put too much on, in some areas there is almost no detail at all!
Is there a safe way to take off the extra primer without disfiguring the plastic model?
simple green. you can get at Home Depot for around $10 a gallon. just soak them in it over night and reprime them. has saved me countless times.
yup, it works well, but keep the model soaked for about a week. i had two land raiders in the stuff for that long, one still has some primer on it but definitely gets it good
I have no Idea how that happened. I leave mine in over night or two at most and they're fine.
Simple Green doesn't strip all the primer off, but it does have an effect on removing primer. It thins the primer layer enough that it is functionally the same as a bare model.
after the simple green soak make sure to take an old medium stiffness bristle toothbrush and scrub it... Pretty safe on the plastic, and gets the primer out of most of the recesses
super clean is another product that works even better than simple green. it's cheap and biodegradable aswell, except you'll have to wear gloves cause it's real bad on skin.
thanks a bunch guys
