    spray painting with snow

    GAH! well here in wyoming we already have just about 4 inches of snow. it is butt numbing cold. and for the most part this wouldnt be a problem but im trying to basecoat the other half of my 40k army. the spraypain guidelines though have a minimum temp guide, which i fall way below of.

    it is not expected to get above freezing for about another week or two. and even then it will be very spotty. so i was wondering if anyone had a way that i'de still be able to spraypaint. and unfournatly painting inside isnt an option. the apparptment is just too small to be ventalated.

    Ooh, that sounds sucky. I live in California, so I really have no idea how you might get around it. Maybe... see if one of your friends has a nearby ventilated/heated room you could prime in? Or maybe you could... Umm... like, light a fire outside and rime near that? But then again, primer is highly flammable... I dunno. I know how terrible it is to want to paint, but not be able to (I ran out of primer after the first half of a model once. I didn't make it to the hobby shop for 2 weeks.)
    Well, I hope you figure out a way to get around it, good luck.

    You can spray inside - it is possible even in an apartment. I have done it before without any ill effects...

    That said if you are unwilling to spray inside I would suggest seeking out a brush on primer. I have used something called Folk Art Glass and Tile medium (cut it 50/50 with water and add ink to tint) to very good effect. It is a glass primer that works very well on figures... otherwise there are other brands of brush on primer (do a search).

    Cheers,

    Spray inside, the guys at GW do it all the time inside the store. Open a window spray next to the window facing out and then close the window and let the models dry inside.
