I had some fun experimenting with painting Lara Croft. Too bad there's so few awesome paintable things on Thingiverse. Printed on a Form 1+
The print looks great in color. What material did you print this? I know Form 1+ uses different type of material, can the same painting technique used for PLA and ABS? Thanks for your time and input.
The key to painting is first applying a coat of spray primer. Look for Gray Spray Primer at a hardware store (something formulated for plastic works best). Once the part is primed, it doesn't matter what the underlying material is, you can paint it with acrylic paints. After painting I followed up a with a coat of clear to keep the paint for wearing off.
