Author: Les Kenny; Editor: Maree Anderson


Step 1.8. Paint - undercoating the head

Of course the same safety rules applied to the epoxy resin paint as did with the epoxy resin used for the fiberglass.

For the crown impressions I just used a water based black gloss.

The excess was wiped off with a rag wrapped around a firm pad and white undercoat paint rolled over the top with a smooth (non fluffy) roller.

The rest of the undercoating was pretty much standard stuff.
