Airbrushing basecoat (basics)

Postby prion2001 » Fri Jul 25, 2014 6:40 pm

Getting ready to use an airbrush for basecoating models and had a very basic question. Do you prime the model first?

Yes, prime the model first. You need the paint to adhere to something.

Some companies have primers that can be aplied by airbrush too. But primer before paint is a yes.

Vallejo makes air brush primers in various colors that can also act as a base color. Check the War Store.
