If you want to improve the overall look of your model, bring colour to it and give it a more eye-catching finishing, you can paint it. Painting is one of post-processing methods. The process of coating the surface of your print with paint can be time-consuming, but it gives you a chance to show off your creative abilities.

Painting the Print

Paint the model with acrylic spray paint. If you decide to put many layers of paint, remember to let each layer air dry before you put another layer of paint. It will help you avoid blisters.

Varnishing the Print

For a better effect you can cover the print with 1-3 layers of transparent varnish. Remember to let the varnish air dry before putting another layer.
