Just wondering if anyone has any experience with life color acrylic white primer. How does it work and what do you think of it.

Someone gave me a couple pots of it .

Thank you

Actually I never heard of it. Why don't you try it out and let us know how it is. I know that I test all the products fairly extensively that I do use but that isn't one of them.

No replies appreciate the help

Gosh, sorry to hear you've received some off-brand stuff and don't know the compatibility. Since you have it on hand, why don't YOU try it out and let us know the results instead of whining about the lack of responses?

Easy there Big Daddy! I too can appreciate the frustration of the sound of crickets from this board when asking for advice. Some of us are just looking to save some time by asking questions. I’ll do my own testing as you all so helpfully suggest even if there’s a response.  Seems there’s plenty of bad as well practical advice and one needs to sort the “wheat from the chaff “ as it were.

I looked up lifecolor paints in a search where Amazon came up, I clicked on there and found a materinty belt, garden hoses, a toy soldier set, some kind of curtain and various other items. But in another search a hobby store came up and they gave these paints a pretty good review. But I still don't have any experience with them.

I also found where Fine Scale Modeler Magazine did something on these too.

That's great ! I hope it works out for you.

Apparently this brand is big on military and cammo sets and they have thinner, cleaner, several different military sets of paints. I'm still not finding anything on the primers, there are a few videos and reviews out there at youtube on the system and paints. I get the impression this line may be UK based but it's more available than I first thought. Since they are model paints I have to assume the primer should work reasonably well on plastic fwiw.

I don't intend to change any time soon from Badger Stynylrez primer though.

Here is one video I watched:
