WaterBorne ™ Clear Base Primer 8 ounce Bottle (also available in 2, 1 and 1/2 ounce bottles)
To be used as a preparatory coating on bare vinyl as the first step in using air-dry paints. 
Because vinyl is a petroleum product, water-based paints and mediums generally do not adhere well.  The same goes for baked polymer clay.  This product solves the problem of getting WaterBorne ™ paints to apply smoothly and adhere permanently to these surfaces. WaterBorne Clear Base Primer should be used straight from the bottle undiluted, smoothed on with a soft cosmetic sponge, and allowed to dry for up to 24 hrs before painting.  It is completely clear, non-yellowing, flexible and waterproof when fully dry.  It provides "tooth" to smooth surfaces so the paint can adhere permanently.  I recommend you use this as a base coat on ALL cleaned vinyl doll parts before you apply water-based, air dry paints.  You can also mix with WaterBorne ™ colors to create MORE transparent color for washes or blending layers.  You can use up to 3 parts Clear Base Primer to paint.  This is especially helpful when you have vinyl that seems to resist holding the paint layers.
