Using Our Base Inserts
You can paint them already glued to the base or still in the sheet for easy bulk jobs. Paint them just like you paint your models with spray primer and normal acrylic paints. We do caution against excessive use of washes. When attaching inserts to bases and models to the assembled bases we recommend using superglue. For pewter models, it is best to pin them through the card insert to the plastic base underneath to ensure a strong permanent bond. If pinning, you may wish to remove a small circle of the insert with a hobby knife before drilling to avoid an possible frayed edges.
We recommend sanding lightly before painting to help with paint adhesion. Prime and paint like any model at this point. The bases shown are not included. Only the textured inserts are included in this package.
Q: Why are some of your base sets less expensive than others that include the same number and size of insets?
A: We base pricing on actual cut time. Designs with fewer lines and shorter cuts take less time and thus are less expensive. Instead of pricing everything the same to cover the most expensive products, we would rather pass the saving on to you where we can.
