    Good news! I have finally completed the primer phase! I'm pretty happy with the results. For first try, I think it didn't turned out as bad as I had anticipated! :D

    But I do notice that the Chest Plate is still not smooth. Any tips?
    Or should I use this to my advantage and use at is a "worn" effect?

    worn effect. i found that the "mess ups" end up looking better as worn or "battle damage" than anyting i could have planned or tried to do myself. work with the painting effects can make it stand out or even almost not be noticible.

    Spotting and Glazing Putty, normally used with auto-body filler ("Bondo"), will help fill in those "pen holes". These are the annoying indentations the size of the end of a pen. Put it over the affected area in a thin layer, let dry (read the label, about 10 - 15 minutes) then sand.

    Once you've gone as far as you feel you can with auto-body filler ("Bondo") and the spotting and glazing putty, I am finding you can still gain some smoothness with the primer. Use a good quality primer and apply several layers, sanding with a high grit paper in between.
