I was using spray primer (army painter black) and was doing a jetbike. I look down and it looks rough like sandpaper. I realize the can was just about empty. Now not sure how to fix. Very strange and have not seen it before. Is it something from the bottom of the spray can? What can I do other than dump it in green stuff and try and strip it?

oh, yeah... probably needed more shaking than normal, try shaving it off/down, if not just strip it and use new primer

That is what I figured. I have a bunch of models in simple green, I just throw this in when they are done.

That is typical for spray cans to do that near the end of their life. I don't know what it is but it happened to me plenty. I would stop using my spray cans after they got too low and save it for terrain or bases.

Ah, Well...

Threw them in with the other models I am stripping. Hopefully won't be to big a deal.

yeah, you may need to sand/file it down a bit also...

Stripping them should work but if there is still some texture left over hit it with some fine grit sand paper to smooth it out. I would think 660 grit would be enough.

I find an old toothbrush works well for taking the surface down just alittle. The GW cleaning brush works well, really any plastic bristle brush will do...

Depending on the shape of the parts that need fixing, you can try microfibre sanding paper. These are used by jewellers to polish metals. The grits are extremely fine, 800, 1200, 1600, 4000, 6000, 8000 etc.; this will help smooth the surface without adding scratches to the plastic or metal model.

I've purchased from this seller before:

After a week in simple green, no love...well, lots of love between the primer and the model, so no divorce would be better wording. So, I took some 500 grit and went at it, got it tolerable and put a new coat on. There is still some texture, but I think I will try to use that to create some damage effect. It is on a jet bike, so maybe rocks or shrapnel blew into it at speed or something.
