    I've read several threads where Radicons mention not painting figures if it was raining outside; so would anyone care to elaborate why this is?

    Also, does it affect the type of paint ( spray or bottle) or all paint in general?

    I'm confused, you're asking why you shouldn't paint in the rain?

    ...

    Because the rain will wash the paint away?

    No, lol. Some guys were implying that you shouldn't paint TFers while it's raining outside. I paint inside, so I was curious if the weather somehow affected the paint or something.

    I would imagine that the humidity of a rainy day would make for sticky paint apps.

    Exactly why, ive had to re-do a few customs due to humidity it caused the paint to chip and flake or just not adhire right
