    THE primer to go for, period. I usually stick to lacquer paint so this is my first time trying out an acrylic primer – so far I’m really impressed! I spray 2 light coats at 18psi with one drop of flow improver and the result is super thin and smooth. In fact, it is so smooth that I can’t even feel the paint on the surface of primed miniatures. I really can’t recommend this product enough. You have to try to see how good it truly is. Edit: Since this is acrylic so it’s not as adhesive to plastic as lacquer primer so I don’t recommend painting this on moving parts (ie Gunpla joints). It is still great for static models.Read more

    I’ve tried this paint for airbrushing and I’ve spent the last couple days trying to figure out the combination of air pressure, thinning and distance. I used this surface primer undiluted and it worked for a bit then it didn’t. I had to take my airbrush completely apart before I located a very large glob of paint blocking the volume of paint going through the gun. I’ve been using an airbrush with a pot on it and I could spray water through the gun and when I added undiluted paint I got no paint flow at all, nothing. I started adding airbrush flow improver and kept adding it until I got the primer to flow and I was way beyond 1v1 paint mix. I adjusted the flow pressure up and down between 18 and 30 psi with little change in paint flow. Painting with a bottle hanging off of the airbrush wasn’t ideal, you needed more paint the necessary to get the paint to spray. I don’t know if the primer has set around a while or what, it does seem a bit thick. I used some Vallejo middle stone I had purchased and it was so thick it wouldn’t come out of the bottle. To get it to a consistency where it would spray I was probably at 4 parts thinner to 1 part paint. I believe I’ll be looking for a different maker of paint. I used to use Humbrol paints before and never had the issue I’ve had with this paint. It covers nicely once you get the ratios correct. I’m just going to try something I can actually put into the airbrush and spray maybe adding a bit of thinner. While it covers well and looks okay on what I’m painting it is more work than I want to go through every time I try to paint. Changing colours is a big hassle. I’ll be looking for a different brand of paint for my models.Read more

    I’ve been trying to get away from the spray can primers for my miniature painting as I keep hearing how bad it is for your health and I’ve tried a few different options. I picked up a small 1oz/30ml bottle of this Vallejo black primer and was very pleased. Once I was about half-done with it, I was convinced so I ordered this big 200ml bottle. Since I brush it on, it takes a bit more work than just blasting it with a can of spray paint but it’s not too bad. I can do it here at my desk which is a huge benefit for me since I never had a good place for the spray paint. A couple of quick passes with an over-night wait and it’s ready for the next step.Read more

    I live in an area where temperatures and humidity are not exactly ideal for using spray primers. This product helps me to avoid that issue by letting me prime inside my home. The directions say to apply this primer through an airbrush, but I’ve had no problem at all just applying it with a regular paintbrush.Read more

    I was looking for a great primer as I’m getting into mini painting. I see all wonderful things about Vallejo so it was my first choice. It is recommended to airbrush it on, and I’m sure it saves time and is a smooth application, since mine wasn’t available to me at the time I brushed it on. Now, I first had to remove the terrible primer I tried first so I was ready for mixed results, however, the Vallejo primer went on smooth and easy, has a great finish, and I can’t even make out brush marks (I don’t think the picture captures how good it looks really, but cannot emphasize enough how smooth it is). 10/10 for me, highly recommended.Read more

    It’s good stuff… I know there is a tug of war between this and the Badger stuff… both work well, but I have had ZERO problems with this… Some talk about it not adhering to the model, or peeling away – maybe they need to clean their models first, maybe they are spraying it wrong… I am aware, as with all primers and paints, time or cold storage is not your friend – I don’t doubt that poorly stored primers would have adverse reactions… but, so far, I haven’t experienced that – 1000+ models and still kickingRead more

    This product is actually insane. I am not normally someone to write glowing reviews, but this has been the best purchase I have made as a painter. I’ve tried rattlecans from basic primer, to game worshop, to army painter and never had as clean of an experience as with this. Put a couple drop in an airbrush and you will come out with a beautiful and even matte black as a canvas to work with. What makes this product crazier is even though it is made for the airbrush work perfectly well when applied with a brush, it is almost like magic how well it comes out and it actually saves you on paint! I have a large brush I generally use for priming when I am working and can’t use an airbrush. With Vallejo Surface Primer you can put one drop of black on a wet pallet and is that will be enough to get through an entire miniature, what is really crazy about it is how thin it comes out, it never mucks up details or crevices even when I feel like I got too much on a brush. It feels like it is somehow noob-proof primer. I cannot recommend it enough. If every paint I purchased came out as cleanly and smoothly as this primer I would never have trouble painting again. Try it, you will not regret it.Read more

    Sometimes I prefer a nice, thinly brushed on coat of primer on my miniature as opposed to spray-on. This primer works very well for both. The paint leaves a nice matte finish and goes on quite smoothly with no need for thinning, leaving a well prepared surface for painting. I’ve had no problems with adheasion and it dries quickly, wich is a plus for me. You get a ton for the price. Love it.Read more

    This product is a surface primer, very popular with modelling/miniwargaming/28mm scale models – such as used in Warhammer/Warhammer 40,000/etc., After Games Workshop discontinued their own hand primer (Imperial Primer) without any word of warning I was briefly forced to use rattle cans (I don’t yet use/own an airbrush so am not in a position to use that method). Although GW’s Chaos Black spray does have some useful applications when priming (such as when you need to prime large objects such as buildings, gaming tiles, large models with a lot of flat surface area, etc.,) I found it to be largely inadequate for priming minis, as coverage can often be inconsistent (complex minis will often be left with un-primed patches as the spray can’t often get to recesses if they are obscured by other parts). This inevitably led me to try other available hand primers and Vallejo products are very popular, so I thought I would give it a try. Boy, what a difference.. So these are my thoughts: This primer may be used in two ways essentially: 1. In an airbrush – add a little Vallejo Flow Improver followed by several drops of primer and you’re good to go. 2. By hand, using a small model brush; this is how I use it. It doesn’t require any thinning/watering down and is good to use straight out of the bottle (and the bottle is topped by a nozzle which makes dispensing a few drops clean & easy). There are two main points to mention that make this such an excellent primer: 1. Self-levelling – Although I’m as careful as I can be, you don’t have to be really neat; the primer will level itself out, producing a really smooth & consistent finish, even if you’re a little messy when applying. 2. Shrinkage – The primer shrinks as it cures. This means that if you apply a little thicker than what you intended it doesn’t matter – the primer will shrink/reduce down so you don’t end up with clogged detail. When you combine this feature with the fact it’s self-levelling, you end up with a really smooth, durable & consistent finish with model details still crisp & clear without being clogged. How I use for best results: 2 thin coats, 12 hours apart! Vallejo’s recommendation is to ‘leave to cure for 12 hours’. So, I apply one *very* thin coat and leave to cure for 12 hours. Then, I apply a 2nd very thin coat, and leave for another 12 hours. The result is an extremely durable primed surface, ready to take your base colours. All the details are sharp still. Note: as this product is airbrush-ready, it’s more watery than base colours, hence why my personal preference is to use 2 thin coats.Read more

    I really like this primer, and would recommend it for all scale models, even if you aren’t using an airbrush for the top coat. Subsequent coats of paint take brilliantly. This can be used in an airbrush undiluted, and I have seen comments on the internet that suggest diluting it with thinners will actually cause you problems. However, keep a cotton bud dipped in thinner or cleaner to hand, as I do find it dries up the airbrush tip quite regularly. One other word of warning: leave it at least 40 hours to dry if you intend sanding and filling afterwards. Any less than that and the primer will just peel off like a rubber skin. It’s fine to paint over in just an hour or so though, if no further sanding or filling is required.Read more

    This is an odd product, my three stars reflects the fact that depending on what you’re using it for it’s either excellent, or useless. This sprays really well, gives very good coverage and self levels to a near flawless finish. The problem is that it’s not sandable – at all. It’s like a thin layer of rubber and if sanded it curls up, comes off in flakes and is impossible to get a feathered edge. This means if you’ve primed your model and then for example see that more filler is needed, you’d have to strip all the primer off and start again. For me that severely limits its usefulness as a primer, but if you’re painting metal miniatures for example it’s not an issue. If you are looking for a sandable acrylic primer then I’d suggest Stynylrez (Badger, or UMP in the U.K.)Read more

    Its primer, its acrylic, its black and its from Vallejo, not much else to say about it really apart from its the usual Vallejo quality and arrives sealed in a plastic bag so it won’t mess the rest of your stuff if it leaks. I’ve never had one leak during transit and I’ve got a few bottles of this stuff in different colours. Apparently you can mix this with other Vallejo coloured acrylic paints and varnishes too.Read more

    If going outside to prime your models isn’t an option (bad weather, no garden etc), then this product is an essential purchase. One coat, applied with a brush, will do the same job as a spray on primer. Apparently this is meant for use in an airbrush, but personally I wouldn’t bother. Works great with standard brush application. Dries in about 20mins. Matt finish too. Perfect.Read more
