Hi everyone! I just got my first squad of sternguard today. I assembled them quickly and waited around 20 mins for the glue to dry. I went outside to spraypaint (it wasn't too cold) and i spraypainted them without a problem. I let them dry and I noticed that I missed someplaces so I touched it up with chaos black. I then noticed that the spraypaint wiped off with just a little bit of force from my finger. How do you fix this? I am using armory black primer. Help!
Those models are metal, right? If you don't scrub them down before spraying them, the paint will slough off really easily. Other than that, try not to touch them? lol...
what do you scrub them with?
it could be because the paint dried in the air from it being so cold so all you did is dust your models black
that's a possibility
He said it wasn't too cold, so that wouldn't be an issue..
The issues I see here are one of two, if not both. Not scrubbing the metal, and or not priming...
Chaos Black is not a primer last I knew... So if you are using Chaos Black, what did you use as a primer?
Have you used the primer before and had any problems with it? It could just be a faulty batch.

he said it wasn't too cold possibly meaning it's been cold but, wasn't today
it lead me to believe that he didn't think it was cold enough to be a problem but, it indeed may have been too cold
that's why I asked
otherwise, you have to wash the white stuff off of metal models first also super glue can take up to 2 hours to dry so it could have been the fumes but, i doubt it

Give 'em a good soak in soapy warm water, and then scrub firmly but without breaking anything with a stiff-bristled brush. Works well for me.
Alright Marxus I used Armory Black Primer spraypaint not chaos black paint. It is cold usually but it was nice and sunny today kelter. I used it on another metal figure and it was fine, I think it was not scrubbing them because I also sprayed some bikes and it worked fine on them but not the metal sternguard. I think im just going to get the paint off with an old tooth brush and wash them in soapy water. Ill post tommorow with an update.
Use a "Sandable Auto Primer." You talk about adhesion on on primer? Look no further!
Seriously though...Once I started working with resin I realized that normal primer didn't adhere to it. I tried many different brands and types of primer until I finally settled on a sandable auto primer by Dupli-Color.
They recently stopped selling it around which makes me very sad but there are other brands that should work just fine in its stead.
I highly suggest them.
