There should really be only one choice.

Will see if that can be corrected.

POLL DESCRIPTION

Mako11 Supporting Member of TMP Inactive Member explains:

Obviously, the primer color you choose to use, may depend upon the type(s), size/scale, era, and final colors you plan to use on your human figures, but generally, which color of primer do you use for them the majority of the time?

Presumably, some/many use black primer for their figures, especially for those in chainmail or plate armor, though on smaller minis, or those where you want bright colors over them, that can sometimes be problematical.

Many use white for smaller minis, and/or those where you want a brighter, overall finish, or colors on top.

Some use gray primer, as a middle of the road technique, which can work well with both brighter and more subdued colors.

Others even use brown, especially for figures that have a lot of exposed flesh on them.

So, which of these colors do you tend to use, and why?
