    Movie Props From Westerns?

    y'all need to get to the Gene Autry Western museum in Griffith Park, Los Angeles. The entire basement level is chock-full of western movie and actual western era firearms and memorabilia. Truly a wonder. Been meaning to back there some day unaccompanied so I can give it the full and proper...

    Heavy Metal - Loc-Nar

    You can get 3watt LEDs these days, eye-hurtingly bright. A few of them with a sickly green filter arrangement, lighting the sphere in an array from below so light blasts out of it from all directions. Coleman makes lantern cases that split in a similar manner to the Locnar case. Few extra mods...

    Jayne`s belt pouches? What are they?

    Edit - nevermind, my guess is likely nowhere close. Need a much better image capture. Name an episode and an approximate time hack and I can hit my own DVDs and see if I can capture anything better.

    Future Floor Wax??

    <div class='quotetop'>QUOTE(LittleOleBountyHunter @ Nov 22 2006, 05:55 AM) 1363330</div> You can still see through it. Notice the use of the word 'mist'. And the tint-film suggestion won't work on the compound curves of a lens, unless the curve is in one dimension only, or very, very shallow.

    Future Floor Wax??

    <div class='quotetop'>QUOTE(LittleOleBountyHunter @ Nov 22 2006, 01:00 AM) 1363120</div> Future is just clear acrylic. You could get the same effect you are looking for just by misting your gold paint onto the INSIDE of your lenses. Let the ouside of the lenses themselves provide the gloss. I...

    Show me your AlClad painted props

    If you are looking for a 'metal' finish but NOT a mirror chrome, then the information you seek is different. There are several other ALCLADII metal finishes besides, including duraluminum, titanium, pale burnt metal, polished aluminum. The preparation and undercoat is a bit different from the...

    Show me your AlClad painted props

    [attachmentid=10695] It has worked fine for me. And if it is rubbing off, it is probably being airbrushed on with too much air / dry when it hits the object. Extremely smooth wetsand, thinned wet black gloss enamel undercoat, fully cured, then when you spray the alclad go at low volume and...

    Well, this pisses me off.

    Go one better. Do a redirect so calls originating from that site / domain go to a custom image with something like 'This dillweed is stealing my work AND my imagery'
