I discovered that I had a bunch of space marine models that were primed white. They are going to be part of a Dark Angels army so I'd ideally like to prime them black. Is it going to cause problems to go over the existing coat of white primer with another coat of black? Should I strip them first?
An easier solution and one that won't obscure the details would be to take a larger tank sized brush and brush on black ink over the entire model. This will darken everything and the ink should be thin enough not to obscure details.
As a matter of fact this is my preferred method of priming miniatures before I paint them. The black ink gets the figure dark but not dark enough to make it difficult to see the details.
Hope this helps.
Good idea. I hadn't thought of that.
So, prime white, black ink wash, then paint?
That's the idea of the method, yes
Re-priming over the old primer isn't a bad thing, as long as both coats are sufficiently thin. If not, you can remove the old coat with brake-oil. There's other stuff out there too, but I can't remember the name... Something with green
"I have died a thousand deaths, and I will die a million more..."
simple-green can strip paint among other things, but i'd go with brake fluid because the smell of a open bucket of simple green isn't something you'd want lingering around your house...
Yep. Once the ink is dry just go ahead and paint. I wouldn't waste your time with stripping it at this point. nothing wrong with white primer per se. As long as everything is to your liking other than it being white that is the quickest and easiest method to get you on your way.Originally Posted by meverha1
