A tough lesson in keeping things safe. To protect my Seattle lighting building while I was landscaping the area, I wrapped it in kitchen plastic wrap and secured it with low tack tape. I was nervous about the tape peeling of the finish..
The tape came of just perfect, but somehow the plastic wrap fused itself to the building in several places. I couldn’t peel or rub it off and I couldn’t find any chemical that would not destroy the finish. I had to remove it with lacquer thinner, acetone and ultimately sand paper.
I gave the buildings a light sand and applied Vallejo Olive drab primer. This was a good opportunity to try out the .5mm needle for my cheap Master G233 airbrush. It took a little fiddling to get the needle set just right, but once it was calibrated, the G233 worked like a champ. It layer down some very wide, thick and concentrated lines.
I’m going to let the Primer cure at least a few days before painting. But I’m looking forward to painting this one again with the .5mm needle.
