I need a production tool for priming/undercoating my narrow, curved fan frames.
I’ve been using soft sable brushes with acrylics up to now, but with the cross-section of the frame typically 5/8" x 3/8", it’s pretty fiddly work, and requires a fair amount of time in smoothing down, to get a base for a ‘rub on’ gold top layer.
I’ve thought about a small spray set up, but have no real experience of it, and mainly concerned about over-spray in a small workspace.
Ditto, using foam or mohair brushes/pads, which I believe might give me a smoother coat.
I’ve also just thought of a miniature paint roller, having used full sized ones on walls, wondered if a roller about 1" wide and diameter might work.
Google so far has not produced a functioning one(only doll’s house models), so I thought what better place to seek advice than here.
Anyone tried and succeeded with this approach ?
