Ron Trackside 3D Printed Figures

Hi Hub
What sort of primer did you use? And did you brush it on?
Many thanks

Hi Rich,

I applied a regular turpentine based paint with a brush.
Maybe just degreasing with white spirit is also sufficient, but a layer of diluted primer is certainly better for the adhesion of the enamel paint.

The painting of the figures is almost ready now.
Here are two pictures of how the eyes were made by using a pin.
Just a few small details to do.

The white base of the eyes.                                                                                                          Followed by the irises of the eyes.

The painting of Ron Trackside Figures is ready now.
The excellent 3D figures of Ron really bring a track to live.
Here are a few pictures of the result:

Fantastic Hub,

Great job, thank you for sharing and showing the process. 

I will share on my FB group as well. 

Really pleased to know they will now live on one of your circuits.

Just received my first 2 sets of figures from Ron,I must say the detail is incredible and the poses interesting and differing from the run of the mill .Painting will be a challenge and doing these figures justice will be difficult .I've ordered another set and I'm sure I will be buying many more .Included is a photo of the 2 sets one painted and one in primer On the background is their eventual home
