When customizing, do you need to sand off the paint or can you just add primer then paint? Thansk in advance :)

When I custumise a model I just primer it white, after that you can paint it every colour you want.

And should I spray all my stablemates with primer or one at a time?

It depends on how fast you can repaint the animals.
If you do all at once, the rest you don't paint have extra time to dry.
And it cost extra time if you just spray one and repaint it, and spray the next and repaint it.
But be careful if you do all at once, to don't become careless of the spray coat.

Welcome here!

It depends on what model you're using and the material as far as sanding goes. But never, ever use sandpaper to remove the paint. Use sandpaper to remove things or make sharp pieces smooth. On my custom German Wirehaired Pointer, I used sandpaper to sand off the extra belly hair. For Stablemates you'll want to strip the paint. Very Happy

How do you strip paint? I didn't use primer on my first two breyers, first one I sanded paint off, and painted her, no primer. The paint stays on, the second one, I didn't sand off paint, no primer painted and it doesn't stay on at all (good thing I didn't like the paint) I'm washing him right now, most is coming off.
