Last time we looked at setting up to cement our pieces together, and how I like to do it. Today we will be wrapping up this project, and you can see each of the different pieces in their final form.
Once you have let the cement glue for about a day, you can move on to painting. Letting the pieces cure is very important with cement, if you move on without giving enough time, cement seems to stay too elastic, and the parts will never really stay 'joined.' I'm not a scientist, so I can't tell you why this happens, but I sure know it does.
I use spray paint for this (and for base painting in general, really) because it is cheap, readily available, and nowadays, you can use Fusion paint to skip the primer phase for almost everything. I have used a lot of spray paint on minis in my life, and let me tell you, there is more technique to it than you would think. Remember to read the instructions on the can. When spraying, use even speed, hold the can upright, and do not start, stop, or turn your stroke while on the items you are painting. Make sure you do not saturate the items, as even if the side you are spraying looks right, model parts are small enough to pool on the underside.
That's all for now, folks! I have had a ton of fun with this project, and I would like to thank all of you for your support! If you have any questions, feel free to let me know.
