Default Spray Primer Temperature

Is there an appropriate temperature range for priming models with the spray primer... I heard somewhere that if noty done at the right temperature, it'll look bad...

Farenheight please! (or not, if your lazy)

How can you be sure what you know is the truth if you haven't taken the time to ask yourself the questions that dispute it?

It's true that if you spray when it's too cold, the primer may clump up during spraying. To combat this, make sure to keep your models and spray primer indoors until you're ready to spray. When you're ready, quickly move all your stuff outside, spray, and let the models dry outside for 10 minutes or so, and then bring them inside to dry completely (preferably on another, clean surface to reduce fumes).

Agreed with the above, with the additional caveat of watch the humidity. I have gotten a frosted look to some minis when I sprayed them on a very warm and very humid day. It did not affect the later layers of paint, but it did cause some head scratching when I looked at them later.

As said above, I think humidity is a bigger problem. I just use my judgement on what temperature/humidity is alright (any extremes is a no-no; I'd say don't spray below 40-45 or above 90-100 degrees F)

Yeah, i sprayed once where it was hot and dry, like 95 degrees. The mini's came out all fuzzy, like when you run a magnet through metal filings. I had to take a tooth brush to them to get them to a paintable state. It was a commision unit, too.
