Hi All, not so long ago I bought some models from forgeworld, however they were not very easy to paint on. The sprayed-on undercoat kept chipping off and trying to apply regular paint to the resin without an undercoat was near impossible. Anyway after I completed these models I read a post on this forum in which someone stated that they washed their forgeworld models prior to painting, to get rid of oils or something!? Can anyone elaborate on this? What should I wash them in, just water? I've got some more models on the way so any advice on this or any other preparation methods would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance
Yes, washing your resin models is a very important step, otherwise residue from the casting process will be left on your pieces and well, you found out what that causes.
ForgeWorld has a nice set of pages about how to use resin:
Can reinforce this enough, follow the FW instructions, this is far more important with FW models than any other model I have encountered
D'oh, I should've checked the forgeworld site first. Thanks for the replies guys.
