captainbob Posted October 11, 2013 Share #1 Posted October 11, 2013 I scratchbuild mostly with bass wood and I usually paint my boats. The admiral has trouble with strong odors so I use craft store acrylics. I do use Krylon primer, which I spray outdoors, on the raw wood to help me see any flaws that may need filler. Then I sand and paint with a brush. I always seem to have a hard time getting a nice smooth finish. I need help. Here are some questions I have. How do you prepare the wood? What brand of paint do you use? Do you thin the paint and how much? What brushes do you use? There are probably other questions that I don’t even know to ask, so any information will be helpful.
