Painting on 3d printed Selfie

Recommended Posts

Hi @lprakash03,

Thank you for your message and welcome to the forums.

I'm not sure whether or not it is a selfie is important, but on what material you want to print.

Will it be printed on an Ultimaker?

What material will you use?

Generally speaking, adding a primer first before applying paint is a good idea. Both for surface smoothness and attachment of paint.
