Painting Guide

MODELU’s 3D printed figures and components are cleaned and ready to prime and paint.

Preparation
Remove any build sprues with a pair of good quality side cutters such as Xuron Sprue Cutters. Leave the base intact to give something to hold onto whilst painting.
Give the figures a light dusting of a primer such as Halfords black, grey or white primer.
Painting
Quick drying acrylics are best for figure painting, such as LifeColor, Vallejo, Tamiya or Humbrol. Apply in thin layers, building up gradually.
Paint base flesh tones, when dry then block in the larger base colours.
Apply highlights using lighter shades and fill shadows using a dark wash.
Installation

Use side cutters to remove the base from the feet. Fix the figures with Tacky Wax.
