These 40 mm white metal Prince August miniatures have been undercoated with Dupli-Color Deco Matt Acrylic «Sapphire Blue». The acrylic spray paint was much easier to control than the Dupli-Color Primer Grey from the same manufacturer, resulting in a thin and even coat of blue. The matt acrylic paint adheres well, dries quickly, and may be painted with acrylic paints from other manufacturers. A blue undercoat was chosen, because the greater part of these miniatures, namely the uniform coat, will be painted Prussian Blue. Undercoating miniatures in the dominant uniform colour is an aspect of speed-painting.
Dupli-Color Deco Matt Acrylic «Sapphire Blue» is an acrylic paint suitable for undercoating metal and plastic wargame miniatures en masse. Cheap acrylic spray paints allow large numbers of figures and horses to be undercoated very efficiently.
