Works like a charm Adam
Thanks so much for the vid.
Come on Sigie, don't hog the pictures for yourself...share
can i do this with any spay paint or with wat kind help
that looks good. Glad to be able to teach young padewans ;-)
When I make my armor I'll probably use this technique, except a bit different 'cause my armor will be black. thanks for the vid Adam!
well csn i use this with any spary paint
Hey Adam, how would you go about painting the armor of this guy?
They have that kinda glossy/metalic shiney armor, but it still looks dull at the same time.
same thing, but finish it off with lots of clear coat ;-)
why a lot? two coats usually work
well this is getting pretty damn old but wat kind of spary paint do ,i use to paint my armor!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Because if you put alot of coats on, those layer will build up and create an invisible barrier between the environment and Helmet surface. Also, It makes it very shiny.
Ive never been a fan of really shiny armor....looks like it could have been wrapped in plastic wrap. Anyway, I plan on using a flat paint, not gloss and then maybe one coat of clear.
Wow! Simple techniques, artfully applied, sweet, really sweet.
Though I thought the style looked familiar. Built up shades, blacklining, bright highlights/drybrushing to contrast the deep base tones. Yep definatly saw plenty of that sort of thing in the cabinets when I was a Troll/Hobby Specialist at GW HQ.
well if i had a father all my life i wouldn't be on this site but scince i dont i still need traning wheels because i never had nobody to teach me excuse ne sorry 4 being a outcast
you know not everybody is prefect
Where did that come from Jordan??? This isn't the place to be discussing that stuff. We're here to learn how to make armor...
Back on topic please.
Thats an amazingly good job man. I hope I can paint this well.
I was thinking the same thing. A lot of this is just macro versions of what's applied to painting miniatures.
so the black is auto-primer not spray paint? I want do do it on cardboard so will the hammered stuff work on it?
Wow, that's really amazing. A lot simpler than I would've thought! Nicely done!
holly crap that looks good
like chocolate diped in fudge
the primer eally gives it more demension of however u spell it
That Oregano is one crazy ass color. I went to every store in my town, and no one had it, so I go to the town to the north and find some at Home Depot. However, the can didn't say "American Accents," it says "Painters Touch." They must've changed it, I looked really close at all the paint and almost missed it. In the store and on the way home, I swear it looked like just a beige. But now that I'm home it looks green. I don't know how you ever came up with this color Adam, my hats off to you.
This video is the one that taught me how to paint my own armor. Watching these 4 minutes never gets old.
Ok, my armor paint job got all scratched up and chipped while attending a couple costume contests. It is past the point of battle scaring/damage painting. Arrggghhhh. So, I have followed the instruction, but am having trouble with the clear coat, paint, and primer peeling off the suit like it was a skin.
Does anyone have any advice on what would cause this and / or what I am doing wrong?
I used the Rustoleum primer, automotive paint (1:1), and automotive clear coat (4:1).
Sand it... its not sticking because you have a surface that either not clean, or too smooth.... a fine grit sand paper will help out with both
Yep, did that. How fine?
