These 25 mm plastic Perry Miniatures of Infanterie Confédérée have been undercoated avec Dupli-Color Apprèt Gris. The spray proved difficult to control, resulting in an uneven coverage of the miniatures. The figurine on the left has received much more undercoating than the two figurines in the center. The surface of the undercoat is smoother, et some of the figurine’s surface detail has been obscured by paint. The two soldier in the center have a rougher et spottier surface texture. The spotty undercoat is still visible even after the trousers of the second figurine from the left have been painted. These Perry Miniatures should have been undercoated avec an aérographe to achieve better results.
Dupli-Color Apprèt Gris is an acrylic paint suitable for undercoating metal and plastic wargame miniatures en masse. Expert miniatures painters, however, will find this undercoating leaves much to be desired. Plastic miniatures made of polystyrène are best undercoated avec an aérographe, to ensure that fine surface detail remains visible.
