Last week I painted the two big beetles from the Vermin set. I prepped them in the usual way; soaking overnight in some water with a couple drops of dish soap added, and then giving a light scrub with a soft toothbrush and rinsing, then drying. Unfortunately, I ran out of my usual Krylon Flat Black Camouflage with Fusion spray paint, and I was unable to find a replacement can of it. (I hope Krylon hasn't stopped making it!) So, I got a can of Krylon regular Flat Black Fusion, which I hoped would be the same as the Camouflage variety, but it turned out it wasn't. I sprayed these guys with it, and it left them tacky, even after a few days of drying. You can see they're still a bit shiny in the photo below. Anyway, I've heard reports of folks having success going ahead and painting over the tacky primer paint, so I thought I would forge ahead, and give it a shot. I glued the figures to 1 inch black-primed fender washers, and glued these to a tongue depressor for ease of handling during painting.
