hi, you may have seen my thread about turning a full size vinyl gremlin into a bust, see below
well i thought i'd start a new one covering the paint up, some of you may find it interesting? i hope
first up, i have no experience in painting this type of piece, i am just following things that i have read over the years.
second, i am NOT trying to copy any particular gremlin, this will be a custom paint job using various reference. i'm just going for something that looks aesthetically pleasing.(to me)
i have collected various pics and have decided on a brown scheme.
i might totally muck this up but what the hell....
i hope you don't mind pics
base layer being applied (tamiya buff with flat white)
then started shading the folds and creases with a brown red (tamiya)
this is actually more time consuming that i thought
thankfully its just a bust!
with the shading and mottling complete the original base coat colour is misted over the top
i also added some blue veining with a small brush, i would haveadded a bit more but it was getting cold in the garage
thats it for tonight, about 2hours work. i hope to get more done tomorrow
thanks for looking
