    I have brushed and sprayed the flat white primer coat. Both work well. I have used flat white model paint from a spray can. That is brushed, just make sure the brush strokes are with the "grain".

    Great tutorial, as usual. I never gave it any thought to use Rit dye in that way. There's always something new to learn, thanks.
