How to Paint Shapeways 3D Printed White Strong and Flexible: Method: 1. Immerse in acrylic floor sealant (using tweezers is a good idea). Take out, store nose down to let it dry for 4 hours. Takes 30 secs. 2. Use coarse brush dipped in turps to clean off over-accumulation on wing leading edges, etc. Takes 20 secs. 3. Repeat steps 1 & 2 4. Let dry overnight. 5. Paint in your favourite method. I use overall linen, then paint over that. 6. Use gloss varnish to give decals a good surface to stick on. 7. Put on decals. A thin coat of 3:1 PVA glue/water may help them adhere. (That Morane fuselage decal needed it!) 8. Dullcote 24 hours later.
