Bare-Metal foil tip

Tip: Here’s a technique I’ve used since I started working with Bare-Metal foil.

When painting a model with a primer base coat and two or more coats of paint, small details such as moldings and trim tend to go away.

I use Bare-Metal foil to carefully mask the details I want to foil before the model is painted, then before the last coat of color is applied, I take off the masking. This saves the detail, and after I finally apply the foil, I don’t have to worry about seeing any primer edges if I fall short trimming the foil.
