Its been 2 years(!) since my last quest for spray primer. One can of Plasti-Kote White was good for about 250 figures. Great stuff – covered both metal and plastic, with no flaking and did not hide any detail. Now the can is empty & the product no longer seems to exist.
Going back to my original research Dupli-color automotive primer seems to be the next best product. What is everyone using to prime their figures? I always prime white, work with metal and plastic figures, and would like to avoid spray paint.
Dupli-color sandable primer is a hit. $5.00 at the local auto parts store will take care of my primer needs. The test figure turned out great. The metal fig showed off flash lines & minor details I missed when first cleaned & the plastic figures (Wargames Factory and Mantic) have a smooth base coat with no melting or bending.
