    ive looked on testors and in walmart. am i right in assuming that all primers are spray on?
    likewise with sealer/finisher?

    and lastly and i am so weird about doing this, SANDING. i have 2 fears in regaurd to this:
    1- using too much pressure and breaking the toy.
    2- sanding off too much and then having gaps.

    tips on that appricated.

    thanks

    1. They do make brush-on primers.
    2. Same as above.
    3. Wet sanding is less abrasive than regular dry sanding, but it gives you more control over how much of the surface you sand. Also, there are various grades of sandpaper made for different jobs.

    Future Floor Finish. It's commonly used by hobbyists. Look it up under the Table of Contents of our Tutorials section.
