I use Krylon white primer. I have always waited 24 hours before painting, but I find that the longer a figure goes after priming, the better it seems to work out. An important aspect of priming is getting "tooth." That's the ability of the paint to adhere to the primer. If the primer is too smooth, the paint doesn't stick too well—this is especially problematic if you use any kind of wash technique.
