Painting Post

Post by jason1977 » Wed Jun 08, 2016 2:42 pm

So I built a chaplin with lots of magnetized parts: Image
Now how do I prime and base coat them without haveing paint pool up on whatever flat surface Im using to hold the parts. Well since the arms have pieces of tin on them I decieded to use more magnets and do this:

Image
Its simple. A piece of plywood, wood dowel, 1 wood screw and a bunch of nails. I put a small magnet on the end of each nail. I did not glue it as IF I had a magnet part to put up the sides may not match up. I was able to prime and base coat a bunch of parts and not have paint pool.
In an act of kindness and respect, please respond to PMs one way or the other with in a timely manner.
Im sorry but I do not ship outside the US.

Were you using aluminum nails?
Magnets will typically stick to nails, making it unnecessary to glue magnets to the tips.

That said, I'm looking forward to seeing the progression of your project.
