Well, Im pretty new to painting toys and not sure if this is the right section or not, but google hasnt gotten me very far and I need a little extra help. Firstly, I have already removed the old paint and primed it with a rough coat of acrylic paint, but my main problem is getting the paint to look smooth. The first thing I tried was the old fashioned paint brush method & acrylic paint (which leaves brush marks and beads of paint.) Then I tried airbrushing. Which doesnt seem to get a lot of paint on and when I do try to get a thick coat it leaves a visible trail of "dripping paint" :/ What am I doing wrong ?.. should I try spray can paint? Am I using the wrong medium to prime it? ------- And secondly, for some of my toys there are pretty unsightly screw holes that I want to fill in. My friend suggested that I could fill them in with glue and paint over it, but the problem with this is that I cant smooth the glue by sanding it >_< .. any other suggestions? I'm not an artist at all lol, so please forgive my stupidity and thanks in advance for help.
