ok, i have decided that i dont like the look of my models.
I want to repaint them with an undercoat of grey and pain overthat with white.
do i need to reprime it as well? I just stuck some grey over the original colors and it looked alright, just needed another coat.
Should i reprime just in case?
Thc for help
Fear not the light for I am the darkness, fear not the darkness for I am the light. Fear what you do not know, for that is I.
I am niether the light nor the darkness, the good or the evil, I am the omnipotent force that drives them, the force that controls them. The force that you do not see, but is always there.
I am neither living nor dead, alive or dying, but i am the existence, the existence of what you did, and of what you did not do.
First you should strip the models. Otherwise the next layers of paint can blot out details. There should be a topic on that, so search for it. I don't know much about stripping the models, I've never done it before.
Once you're done, just paint the fig as usual.
LIke gundam fan said, yes you should strip the models of the paint existing on your model. If their plastic, be careful not to use some too powerful ones, it might take away the detail of the minature.
PS: go to the stick thread on Stripping
I heard some substances can melt the plastic. That would suck if that happened, so watch out!
