I'm painting some models that will roughly be about 90% black, and I'm wondering if it would be a good idea to use a white primer spray? I don't have any other and I'm not sure black will look so good on top of that, so I'm thinking I might just skip the primer altogether and maybe do a few more layers of chaos black...suggestions? Sorry I realize this may sound like a dumb question and will be obvious to most, but I'm a pretty newbish painter.
Start with black, end with black.
Be warned that if you want to do any of the lighter colours as well (especially yellow, white or red) it will be hard to get these looking nice. Metallic paints don't have this problem though.
And over there we have the labyrinth guards.

Yeah well the thing is part of the model is a light green, a small part, but still...it will look bad if the entire model is undercoated black, so what can I do?
I've used this technique on literally hundreds of minis, for bright colors like yellows and greens. With just a few coats, it looks amazing.
Just remember to thin your paints.

Go with the black primer.
For the areas that will have light colors, use layers of gradually lighter colors. For your light green I suggest this: brown, dark green, green, light green.
