Step 1.8. Paint - undercoating the head
For the head section I decided to go for a two pot epoxy resin undercoat paint as that would adhere
well to both the wood and the fiberglass.
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.
First Angela painted the crown impressions black. She slopped it everywhere, but it didn't matter.
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.
