So I haven't been building all week, instead I have been prepping and platidippin' and priming the chest piece, I like to wait a full day before I add another layer so it took a week, but here it is all primed up, looking almost ready for the paint.
I think I will wet sand and final primer layer.
I got the the base coat on! Also all taped up for the sections I want to stay black.
Next up I'm going to put some Vaseline with sand mixed on the corners and areas I think would get chipped away from everyday use on the the main chest plate first, then the torso, the colors I'm going to use is flat iron and moss green, and the ab section will be some type of silver and gunmetal, or maybe a darker grey not sure yet!
Alright, got 3 layers on the main chest piece.
You might have noticed some bumpy bits, that is Vaseline, waiting maybe 4 to 6 more hours before I wipe it away to give it a chipped effect, then I will use splotches of silver on the chipped pieces, should be pretty dope!
Thats awesome. Im glad mine helps. This has been a bit of a learning experience for me as well lol. ive never sat down and done this much work on a single build before. yours is coming out amazing too!
Alright, I got the flat iron coat on and chipped up with some metallic markets on the edges of my chips.
I going the hand paint the straps for the "cumberbunds" and of course add the decals like an ONI on the left part of the chest and unsc for the chest part
