I 3D printed this Boxer Dog bust and tried to paint it to resemble my old dog.

Car filler primer was used to smooth the FDM print layers and I airbrushed/painted using Tamiya/Vellejo acrylics.

This was my first attempt to paint a lifelike object.

I used an automotive high-build primer, applying several coats to mostly fill the FDM layers.

Thank you all for your kind comments.

@Marcello The first picture is the bust just finished printing, and you can clearly see the FDM print layers. The second picture shows the bust after several layers of high-build automotive primer, not perfect but better than before.

@Jim R perhaps, but it still has a long way to go in terms of ease of use and output quality IMO.

It will come sooner than we think. Remember digital photography? It was going to take twenty years to replace wet film....took about five...

I’m really into real-space modelling, and on one group I belong to, one of the guys is drawing up 3D models of the Apollo CSM & LM and making them available for sale on Shapeways (a 3D printing service), yes, very expensive, but the models are outstanding.

ta for the info,Norman,
I do know of that stuff,been around for years in one or another,for car work.
so I,guess its an acetone base ? and will it work in a AB,? as well.
do like the result you get,
