Painting your Figurine

These figurines are delivered unpainted.

Prior to painting, it is suggested to clean and prime the surface. To clean, dip in acetone to remove dust and oils. Then, apply a 3D primer such as Badger 3D prime to seal the striations and porosity associated with the printing process. 2 to 3 coats should do the job. The primer can be applied with a spray gun or with a brush to provide a nice smooth surface for painting.

Paints come in numerous colors including many flesh tones and others common to the navies of these times. Choose a paint that is compatible with nylon plastic material. You may protect the paint with a coat of varnish or lacquer.
