Unfortunately, Pink isn't a great colour to work with - like yellow it's just a bit too light and often requires a couple of coats. The purple undercoat doesn't help - it speeds up painting the body, but any streakyness will show through immediately. Therefore I ended upw ith about three coats on most of the figures to hit all the relevant parts sufficiently.
