    Magnetic primer - an anti-recommendation

    I bought some rustoleum magnetic primer to apply to my custom Games workshop movement trays. It took about 8 THICK layers to get enough pull force to hold up a model. After drying for 2 weeks, I put my models on the trays. 7 days later I took my models off the tray and the primer pulled off the trays where the magnets were. It is still a very soft surface. It took forever to apply and all I have to show for it is a big swiss cheesy mess for trays.

    Since I didn't wash the trays, that might have made it better, as it is possible that the mold release agent was still on the trays and interfered with the binding but still I would not recommend using this product on plastic.
    If anyone has had better luck, please post your experience.

    I need to find an old refridgerator door I can cut up because my models stick to that amazingly. Or maybe some magnetic roofing material, but all I have ever been able to find is aluminum.

    Just get some steel paper and cut that up for your movement tray. Thats what I use.
