My gesso experiment

I bit the bullet last night as I primed my Anima Tactics minis using gesso. According to the web, I could glop the gesso on the minis and obscure as much detail as I want, because it will shrink and conform to the mini’s details as it dries.

Guess what?

It worked! I couldn’t believe it. In a span of 20 minutes I finished priming all 7. Even though the primer dried off at around 40 minutes later, I’ve read that it’d recommended to leave it to cure for 24 hours. Fair enough I suppose.

But really, this stuff is so amazing I’d recommend it to anyone who wants to find a priming alternative to spray cans.
