What do you all use to put down a base/primer coat of paint on a small-medeum sized project. Im painting a helmet and the base is going to be white and was wondering what i should use to cover it instead of using my airbrush (badger 200NH). Should I get something like this (http://www.eshop.msn.com/eshopframe.aspx?merchId=2771&catId=2551&u=http%3a%2f%2fwww.overstock.com%2fcgi-bin%2fd2.cgi%3fcid%3d17157%26PAGE%3dPRODUCT%26PROD_ID%3d651805%26fp%3dF)?

first welcome here....
and as primer you should just use a rattle can...thats the easyest thing...

ditto. If it requires less than a pint of paint or primer a rattle can is SOOOOO much easier. If you are going to be painting alot of things like this, consider a small touch up gun like a Binks, Iwata makes one too, but mixing paint, thinner, binders, activators, fish eye reduction etc etc for small projects takes way too much time not too mention the cleanup. Besides getting the secret formulas down for mixing is much harder to do on smaller mix jobs.

Alright, thanks guys. and by rattle can, I assume you are talking about spray paint. and if that is what you are talking about then that will be alot cheaper than buying one of those electric spray guns or whatever i put that link to. Thanks again

Rattle can = spray can
Hairy stick = paint brush
Ugly stage = (we all know what that is) LOL
WIP = work in progress
AB = what we all love!!!!

:D i won't tell what WIP means in dutch...hahahaha...
but there are great primers for plastic in a rattle can...and you can do about 10 helmets with one can...so thats very cheap..
