Two 500 ml cans later all parts got had two layers of glossy white paint - just about enough to cover the gray primer. I would have liked to have one more coat, but the store was closed at this point.
|The smaller parts still drying.|
I'm not entirely happy with the finished result as can be seen in the picture below. Overall the finish is good, but on some of the edges I probably should have primed and sanded a couple more times. MDF apparently needs more than three coats of primer even though they looked okay before I started applying white paint.
|Still some rough spots on the edges.|
As for now It will have to be good enough - it's only a 3D printer yes? I might go back and fix this later, but for now it'll do. Onwards to the rest of the build!
