Problem with GW Technical Earth paints.

Post by kturock » Tue Dec 08, 2015 9:53 pm

Question about GW paints. I have 2 different colors of the Technical Earth paints. When they dry they crank and then peel off. I know it's supposed to crack, but how do I keep it from flaking off? TIA?

Are you painting the base before or do you apply it directly to the plastic base?

I never had problem with agrelan earth over painted base but It did peel of just over my plastic base when I first tried it.
info about shipping: Lower ratting pays/ship first and I live in Canada.
thank you

No primer?

Prime everything!
I am always in the market for weird and wonderful GW oddbitz and ephemera. PM me if you have something old/weird/rare.

Yes I primed them. This isn't the 1st time I've used them, or had problems with them.

What I ended up doing is putting GW's Lahmain Medium over the semi-dry paint. It holds the flakes in place.

I'll post pics when I can.

Here are the bases. 2 types of Earth, Lahmain Medium and Stirling Mud. Sealed them with a dullcoat.
