Solution to the "Cheap Paint Tackiness" 10 Months ago  
Army Painter primer works, for sure, but it's expensive, so I've used a method to paint my CoS set that seems to be working.

Krylon Matte Sealer (1311)
www.krylon.com/products/matte-finish/

If you spray Dungeon Tiles with this stuff (not too humid or cold!) the spray acts as a sealer and primer, and it's easily available at local stores. It's also cheap as hell.

I started painting my tiles with Americana Flourescents: Fiery Red and finishing it with black gloss, and while it wasn't tacky, it just didn't stick very well. So, I stripped them all off and then started testing.

Primer works fine, but at 6$ a bottle it's an expensive solution. I've used PVA glue (Mod Podge Matte) and this Krylon stuff as a cheap primer for years and it works great. It ends up with a non-gloss, really nice primer. On top of that, you can prime with it, paint over it, and then spray it again to seal the first color in so that if you make a mistake or don't like the color, you can wash off the top layer while preserving the original.

YMMV, but I've done this for years and it's a great, cheap option.

Cheers,
Pete
