Silver Fern II

Off to the paint booth for the Silver Fern prints:

 A commenter asked recently what I use for primer - I use Repco's Etch Primer spray. It doesn't contain the solvents other etch primers I've used seem to have (I'm guessing because it's meant to be used on cars, which these days have a lot of plastic parts).
