Alright so I am painting my new space marine army and my orginal paint scheme I decided would work best with a black primer undercoat. However I have since changed my paint scheme and so now I need them to be white instead bu I already primered them black. My question then is, is it ok to just paint the white primer right over the black? Or do I need to pine-sol the old primer off before putting on the new? Thanks
You can paint white over black but you will have to make sure the coats are thick enough to cover the black. Two thin coats of white will be best. If it's another colour you want (like red or blue) and you think white is the best basecoat then you should should just spray them white so you don't have to go to all the trouble of painting them white again.
You should ask this in the painting forum, you'll get more detailed information there. Mod please move thread.
Thanks! Sorry I looked for a painting sub-forum but didn't see it so I thought this was the next best place.
If you're still dealing with primer, I suspect the white primer would cover the black fairly well. Just apply as normal, I guess, but check to see if you need another coat after the first.
If you just wanted to paint over the black, it can take some time to get to pure white. I've found starting with some grey shades and working towards white works quite well, although you will need some patience as several coats may be needed to avoid your white looking smudged or dirty.
Just to clarify I am using spray primer, not paint on. Spray is much faster and easier and I think produces better results anyway.
I'm moving this thread to our painting section
