i recently received my airsoft captain america shield, very nice shield by the way. and i was planning on painting it using rub n buff, but i have read that the ruby colour which is as close to red as i can get is more of a copper colour. does anyone have any experience with it? or rub n buff in general? would spraying a red undercoat help make the rub n buff come out a more true red colour or should i just use ordinary paints?
i am going for the movie look so the ordinary silver rub n buff will be fine for the raw aluminum look i just need something for the red and blue sections
