Light blocking question
« on: May 14, 2018, 01:30:21 am »
I just had a thought.. Do you prime the inside of a model if you are light blocking it so that the light blocking paint adheres better?

No need.  I doubt your planning on masking the inside ;D

Although i often use cheap black primer then white primer (for reflective purposes) for the light blocking paint. Actually, thats all i use.

Yeah, same as Simi, black primer then a white coat.

I also use Tulip black fabric paint to seal round any exposed LEDs.
