Hi all, I'm carving two Central American birds - the Turquoise-browed motmot - and this is the first time I've ever used the glass eyes and the pewter legs/feet. I'll be using the acrylic paints to paint these guys, but my question is this - will the paint stick well to the pewter legs/feet or should I prime them first, and if not primer, is there anything else to do or use? Thanks and appreciate the help!
