This morning I rode two horses.
This afternoon I am prepping two horses.They are both very close to being done. This is round two of primer.
Everyone has their own favorite primer, and Tamiya Fine Surface Primer in light grey is mine. It's designed specifically for miniatures and goes on smoothly without obscuring tiny details. The only thing I don't like about itis the price. This small can is eleven dollars at my local hobby shop.
Even when you're spraying outside, it's important to be safety conscious. Melanie Miller posted this reminder on the NaMoPaiMo Facebook page last week: Now that people are prepping horses, I wanted to share what kind of protection one should use while spraying primer. You really don't want to breathe that stuff in, and while it might be tempting to just use a regular dust mask, that won't filter out the harmful vapors. The best option is a respirator with these filters attached. Be safe out there!
Thanks for the reminder, Mel. No matter which pair of horses I'm working with, rest assured, I am wearing protective headgear!
