    Pokaż zawartość spoileraUkryj zawartość spoileraRegarding primers: if you paint with lacquers, priming is not entirely necessary, because these paints stick to the resin quite well. Yes, it can help finding flaws but it's not impossible to find them with good lighting on your table and just bare resin.

    For clean white resin you can use clear gloss as a base before painting: it's a thick sealant and can cover up small scratches just as well. It will also help with a smooth surface more than primers do — primers are a fine grain diluted in solvent in essence and it shows, leaving you with an ever so slightly rough surface.

    Priming will help when you have colored putty bits, though. Whenever I have to use it, though, I slightly polish the primed surface with 1500 grit sanding sponge and add a clear gloss layer for even more smoothness.

    Mr Hobby does sell fine grit finishing primer in white, and it's very smooth and provides good coverage. But this primer won't really conceal any small scratches and dents, think of it as a very thick and opaque white paint.

    Hope that helps you with future projects~
