Default Does greenstuff stick to primer?

Hey guys,

Just wondering if greenstuff will stick to a model that has already been primed? I want to model a demolisher cannon on the front of a rhino.

In my experience it sure does . Getting not to stick to things is the trick!

Yes it most definitely will, however, I'd recommend stripping off the primer first if your first layer is already somewhat thick as you'll probably want to prime the GS. Depending on the level of GS you use, it will probably be irrelevant.

Yeah GS sticks to everything. I would scrap off the primer that you you want the GS to stick to just because I'm weird like that but it will stick to primer no problem.

It's not vital on normal plastic models, and if you are having trouble with it sticking to everything, I find dipping my tools in water helps to stop the GS sticking to it.

Me: To be honest im amazed there isn't a chaos god of not revising or at least chaos god of procrastination

MidnightSun: There will be, when enough people do it. Y'know when the Eldar were all engaging in their hedonism and Slaanesh ripped open the Eye of Terror with his creation? Slaanesh will have NOTHING on the God of Procrastination, and his vile minions will carve the galaxy asunder in a thousand year reign of blood.... Tomorrow
