Mr Primer Surfacer 1000 issues
Posted by zsoderquist on Tuesday, February 13, 2018 10:54 PM

I am trying to use Mr Primer Surfacer for the first time in my airbrush. I thinned it at about a 60/40 ratio with Mr Leveling Thinner and sprayed it at 20psi and this is my result.

First off, is this what is referred to as cobwebs? What am I doing wrong?

My question may be an obvious one: did you wash the part inside and outside before painting?  Sort of looks like there may still be some mold release residue.

I build models because I can't afford the real thing!

Prior to painting I cleaned it with Novus #1. Brand new product to me.

Novus #1 is a wax and should ony be used after paint, decals, and clear coat have been applied and dried!  Do all your body work (putty work, seam scraping, etc.) and then wash all body and/or model parts with regular Dawn dish detergent and let it dry.  Prime and then paint your model.

Also remember that there is a HUGE relationship between thinning your paints and air pressure from your compressor when air brushing, and a slight variation on either can be disastrous.

Many of us recommend that you or anyone including myself do some test shooing and practicing before shooting your project.

I've read a lot of posts here on painting and few ever mention messing up a scrap piece simply because they didn't do something as simple as practice on something they could throw away.

Why do we all think we can do something right the first time without taking the time to try our hand at making sure we can do it properly without messing things up?

I was just as guilty many moons ago and had to learn the hard way like everyone else who posts here about paint problems Crying.

Remember - Practice - practice - practice Thumbs Up on scrap pieces or picnic spoons FIRST.

You’re very right. I just ordered a bunch of plastic spoons to start practicing and testing on. I’ve seen a lot of folks mention it on the forum.
