Trials of the gesso

I had mentioned that I tried to prime some minis with gesso, and here are some pics:

This guy came out a bit bubbly. Maybe it has something to do with the gesso going over paint, I don't know.

Notice the uneven coating of the scroll and the hair. I think I'm going to try diluting the gesso slightly.

More info on using gesso is here at Hyun's WeeToySoldiers - link

Last but not least, a shot of the table:

Almost unnaturally clean, isn't it? Remember those tank traps from way back when? They are the one and only 'terrain project' on the table, and there is one group of Tau there as well.

How long will it stay this neat?!?
