on your amor what kind of detailing did you do.. im going to use a silver base coat of paint with a steel over coat of paint so i can do a worn armor look... and im also going to put my spartin number on the back
On mine, (not finished yet) I will be cutting holes into the gauntlet (Unless I buy paintball gloves) and the feet and layer a sheet of cardstuck under the holes, it adds some detail, then I'd painting it black like most do. then on the torso I may cut holes around the neck of the front, like masterchief really has, then for the lower back of the torso, the large indent is suppose to have black/grey layered vents, so I may cut my own pattern, glue and resin them.
I plan on using that really thick craft aluminum foil as a base in some locations then sanding and/or burning away the paint... The concept seems good but I am not sure how it will work out when I get around to doing it.
Because I'm too tired at the tail end of my project to start slapping more Bondo on my sanded pieces, I've started hand-painting my armor (inspired by 4ng31's thread here). I'm not nearly as good as his girlfriend, but I can hold my own, haha. It's amazing how the little details make the entire suit that much cooler to look at!
