Soliciting suggestions for a metal primer that will not obscure fine details i.e., is very low build, for use on white metal castings.
Will be over coated with lacquer and enamel - although not both at the same time.
Tried a rattle can of Krylon gray - applied lightly (so I thought) and it wiped out most all detail. Checked the can - there was no mention it was a sandable primer.
Perhaps it is just a matter of using any primer and thinning it appropriately - whatever that means.
Thanks in advance for any and all recommendations.
