I tend to have problems with paint rubbing off parts of a model that are covered in greenstuff.

I wonder if this is a recognised problem and if there is anything I can do about it?

I have never had this problem.

do you use oil to stop tools sticking to the greenstuff? are you not cleaning it off well enough?

what primer do you use?

what sort of ratios of blue/yellow ribbon do you use?

I mix up my ratios quite a lot.

I think the problem is worse with brush on primer than spray.

Perhaps it is a lube issue, seems obvious now. What's the most efficient way to clean up? Detergent and good rinse?

Normal dishwashing soup will sort it out, even after putting a standard assembly finished you should rinse first.

Thanks guys, totally didn't occur to me to clean up AFTER greenstuffing, not before. D'oh!
