Has anyone tried the clear primer method that's in a recent article with models that are not all of one material? I have a squad of converted units that has plastic, metal, AND green stuff, and was wondering how it'd turn out.
I have used Folk Art Glass and Tile medium as a brush on clear primer and it works really good. I have found that you should mix it 50/50 with water at the time of use rather than cutting a whole bottle at once. The problem that I have run into (caused by mixing it beforehand) was that as I got to the end of the bottle it started producing a crackle effect on the figures.
Otherwise what I have done is mix it 50/50 with water and add a bit of black ink. This stains the figure to bring out the details - making it both easier to paint and add a rudimentary blackline. I have had no problems painting it over plastic, metal, or greenstuff. You do want to wait 24 hours before painting though to fully allow it to set.
The glass and tile medium is also good for a final protective coat on the figure as it dries dead flat!
