Painting photo etch.

Recommended Posts

If you have an airbrush, that would be best as it puts down the thinnest coat of paint. If not, several thinned, light brushed coats will work, just enough to cover. You don't want to hide the fine detail.

Hello Les here. I have purchased photo etched wooden decking from D.J. Parkins. The engraving is very fine and am wondering how to go about painting this. Any help would be great.

I would use a primer first. My personal favorite is Tamiya Fine White (or Grey) - available only in a spray can. It covers very well and gives the paint something to hold on to.
