Painting MDF SHAPED - Help

Hi there ,

Apologies if I am asking an over asked question here.

I have recently brought some thick stand alone MDF Reindeer shapes and painting my first one was fine but it’s a little streaky with the paint strokes. Yes I’m new to craft and thought hey I’ll just paint it lol .....

I since found out MDF is very porous so can someone explain the best step by step method I have just purchased a clear MDF primer and some fine sandpaper. The sides (front and back facing is very smooth) and then the rim thickness of it is very course..... my aim is to paint an all over clear smooth colour any tips or help would be appreciated!!!!
