-When it uses a thing including the thinner(Bond, lacquer thinner etc) and the spray, make good ventilation.
And wear a gas mask and .
<-I'm using this mask.

-When you toast mterials etc, make good ventilation.
And don't breathe smoke, don't put smoke in your eyes, wear a gas mask.

-When you dig mterials etc with Soldering iron, make good ventilation.
And don't breathe smoke, don't put smoke in your eyes, wear a gas mask.

-Do not use the lighter and tools with heart near the things which are easy to burn such as paint or thinner Bond.

-Turn off an outlet and the switch of the tool as soon as you have finished using it.

-Read labels of materials and tools carefully, and understand how to use.

*******************************************************************************************

Instant glue can plane surface easy.
But it can't narrow surface well.
Then you should use bellow spray.
I always use this.
Watch movie.

For example, use bellow surface.


Instant glue Accelerator
This can stick surface in several seconds.
100ml can stick one armorset or about three weapons..
←100ml ←180ml ←420ml

About instant glue
General liquid Instant glue is OK.


Case of sticking except instant glue.
"Bond G17"(one of liqud glue in Japan) can stick too. It's can stick narrow surface too.
But it's take time more than Liquid instant glue and Instant glue Accelerator.
And "Bond G17"(one of liqud glue in Japan) may melt stuck surface if you use "Bond G17" painting.
(You should reinfore stuck surface with Liquid instant glue. Or use Gesso painting.)
After all Liquid instant glue and Instant glue Accelerator is the best.

Paint.
When you paint "Lion Board(Koyo Soft Board)", You can improve quality as follows
by painting the undercoat beforehand.

-Color becomes well.
-Painting becomes hard to come off.
-Gloss comes out well.(If you don't need gloss, you use no gloss paint.
-You can save quantity of the paint.

If you don't use undercoat, you can paint.
If you hope more quality, you sholud use it.

There are two undercoats mainly.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
1.Gesso painting (this is easy method) [Easy, for everybody]

Gesso don't contain thinner.Accordingly there is not smell worry.
It's only paintig by bruch, very easy.it can use Acrylic paint as paint.
This method is recommend for weapons, small articles, two or three pieces armors.
But it's easy to peel off than Gesso painting (this is easy method).
Then it's is slightly unsuitable for moving armor and armorset etc.

Details are here.

Undercort>>>Gesso or Black Gesso
or

Paint>>>Lacquer Spray or Bottle lacquer paint or acrylic paint
or
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
2."Bond G17" painting (this is hard method) [All-purpose,but hard. For a man used to making props]

It's fill thinner smell in room.Accordingly use outside of a room.
This is onerous method, but it's not hard to peel off. It's almighty method.
Then it's suitable for moving armor and armorset etc.
Don't use fire after painting until drying, because "Bond G17"burns easily. Don' use Lighter etc until drying.
The parts will be charred in seconds.
Details are here.

Undercort>>>"Bond G17"(one of liqud glue in Japan) thined with lacquer thinner
-for big things -for small things

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

In subsequent explanation is use "Bond G17" painting.
But Gesso painting is easy to use.


Paint "Bond G17"(one of liqud glue in Japan) thined with lacquer thinner at 3 or 4 times.
Don't use fire after painting until drying, because "Bond G17"burns easily. Don' use Lighter etc until drying.
The parts will be charred in seconds.
