Yeah I think the iPhone upload was the issue. Hopefully it works from my laptop.

So yeah I did scuff the surfaces with fine sandpaper, clean them with multi-surface windex and painter's tack, and use a gray primer before painting. The rest of the pieces have turned out fine. It's just these three pieces with the shinier luster that look a little grainy. I'm not sure if they're resin or tupperware. Being a bit shinier, I'd imagine they're tupperware.

Thanks for your help!

Hey gang,

First time caller, long time listener:

Iíve got a Bukoski Crow kit Iíve been chipping away at for the last couple of years.

I left off last fall when the weather became too cold to paint. Now that itís starting to warm up again, I want to get back to work!

Anywho, throughout the process, Iíve tried to give him numerous thin coats of his gold base paint. However, on a few pieces (I think the shinier plastic) like the vases and one of the floraliers, the paint seems to bead up in small, but noticeable amounts.

Anyone have any experience with this? Any tips? This didnít happen with my Servo. If I keep painting, could it even out? I feel like the blemishes are too small to sand down.

Thanks in advance!
