Why is it important to use Grey primer?

Painting miniatures for board games has been an established hobby for a long time, even before 3D printing became popular. Then, 3D printing revolutionized the hobby of painting these miniatures.  

It likewise revolutionized the techniques and materials that go into the procedure, with the aim of improving at every turn.

Therefore, a primer is absolutely necessary when painting resin prints. It provides a nice matte surface for the paint to adhere to, can fill minor imperfections in the surface of the print and makes the small details of a model stand out better.

So, this grey primer is a favorite among miniature painters. This is a simple, straightforward primer that creates a perfect matte surface and the neutral gray tone is a perfect base for any paint color.

For larger prints, a spray primer may be the more practical choice. Spray primers are useful for applying more even coats, but getting into very small spaces can be a challenge. However, it is not impossible.

You can paint your small figures without a problem, because they can be applied in two or three coats for best performance, making sure to let each coat dry before applying the next.

However, the immediate impact on quality and the long-term consequences make the use of primer a critical first step in achieving a great-looking finish and beautiful, long-lasting results that will give you confidence for years to come.

Another disadvantage of not using grey primer is that the color may look similar, but it will not match the color shown on the paint packaging or color chart.
