i recently bought a can of black spray, citadel one, and after i sprayed on a light layer on my marines, the paint layers just cracked, giving this very ancient texture that looks stupid. what the hell's wrong???
I know you said a light layer but are you sure it wasent too much. It sounds like you just have too much paint on there. Did you keep the minis a nice distance away from you? About one foot from the nozzle of the spray can. Apart from that i dont know.

if its too far away, there would be this mottled, or rough texture, i dunno... do sprays have expiry dates???
I've heard of the problem before...unfortunately, I think Citadel sprays work better once you get about half way through the can. <_<

Well... it also depends on whether or not you washed the minis before you spray painted it. Plus spray paints tend to do that sort of thing if there is high humidity, too high or low temperature... these factors tend to affect spray paint in such a way.

Depends on how you treat the minis.
Touching them again and again with greasy fingers before you spray them won't exactly make this look better.
Rather keep a long distance from the models, trhen you get the rough surface that actually is the best undercoat when it come to ge a coat for other paint ot hang on to.

I WAS IN THE IMPERIAL (Norwegian) GUARD!
I had a can of Ultramarine Blue spray paint but it would always come out much lighter then the paint from the jar. It screwed up my Land Raider and one of my Dreads.
Please heed my advise and STAY AWAY FROM CITADEL SPRAY PAINTS.
i never use sprays for my models
just but a 'blob' of black on ur paintbrush (a crappy one will do), clean most of it off with a sheet of paper towel, then drybrush the model and voila
If you want a truly reliable spray-on coat, either track down black primer from a company called "The Armoury" (DO NOT USE THEIR WHITE THOUGH), OR use black Krylon brand spray paint.
Don't buy Citadel anything. Their crap is garbage and you have to sell a major organ to afford it.
