Lady Jane grey

Lady Jane greyAnother coat of primer - this time grey.

A while ago I inadvertantly discoverd that Hempel do both a grey and a white coloured primer. That coupled with a comment from Seb, from Wendy Ann II, has changed the way I paint the primer onto Lady Jane slightly.

Now I'll put down an initial coat of white primer, followed by a coat of grey then another coat of white. The idea being I can always tell exactly where I've been with successive coats of primer.

Where patches of rust bleed through, I can then dab these patches with grey and follow that up with a second coat of white, to make sure I have a good coating over the whole lot before I put the finishing coat on top.
