I'm looking for a little advice regarding mould lines on my power armoured GKs. I thought i'd found and removed all mould lines but having done the first stage of painting (primed black, boltgun metal > mithril silver > blue ink) and have now found a really obvious mould line on the leg of my justicar :cry:
Now as I see it I can either:
1. Remove the mould line and try and touch up the paint job and hope it all matches up.
2. Strip the model and start completly from scratch. (I'd really rather not do this for obvious reasons!)
3.Live with the it
what do all the more experienced painters out there recommend?
Thanks in advance!
Well, as far as I see it there's only 2 options. 1. Trying to remove it and cover it up, if that fails, repaint. 2. Live with it.
I'd go for the 1st.
Oh yeah, and i'm not that experienced... but this is just my â‚¬0.02
I would recommend scraping/filing away the mold line and then carefully spray prime the area as carefully as you can.
If spray priming is not a real option for you - you could get a brush on primer to touch up those areas or you could try a product called Folkart Glass and Tile Medium (found locally here at Michael's). If you try the glass and tile medium (a clear primer) you will dillute what you use 50/50 with water and just brush it on.
The touch up spray method will probably be the easiest but will require you to touch up the paint wherever the spray primer hit. It you spray lightly it shouldn't ruin what you have done or cause paint buildup.

Thanks for the opinions guys, I think I will go with the remove it then touch up option!
