How to paint 
3D resin miniprints online clinic

July 17, 2020

As part of the excellent NMRAx GatewayX convention on Thursday, July 16th, I presented an online clinic on the steps I use to realistically paint my miniprints 3d printed miniatures to make my model railroad come alive.

It was my first time ever presenting a clinic and it was a lot of fun. The one-hour clinic was streamed live on Facebook and YouTube. A number of people who missed the live stream asked if the clinic could be re-posted – so here it is. The miniprints clinic portion starts at 1:58:27 in the stream:

These are the steps that work for me and I’m sure that there are many other techniques that you can apply to bring your resin 3d prints to life. Do you have a technique that works for you? Are you proud of your miniprints paint job? I’d really like to see your work!

Please feel free to share your thoughts and pictures with me at and post any suggestions, comments or questions.

I hope that the clinic above will be of interest to you and help to bring your miniprints to life. Happy modeling!

    Your clinic will be eventually edited into a stand alone video on the NMRA YouTube channel. It may take a few weeks given the number of videos recorded over the last week.
