I will do the full paint job after the custom animatronics are figured out and finished, as well as the custom backpack.

I am basically winging it, no pictures to go off of. I wanted a cannon with alot of detail and different. I went with the mosaic look because to me that looks alien. I am trying not to rush it,but it is hard because i am happy with the progress so far. Opinions needed.... O:

Going to do all the finish paint after the backpack is done. (In the process with the animatronics)

I had trouble with the gluing part. Started out with hot glue but found the foamies with the sticky back which worked out much better. Once it is finished Im going to spray it with a couple of coats of elmers adhesive spray, then paint a thin layer of regular elmers glue then paint it black and silver.
I have found that Dap Contact Cement, found in the spray paint/caulk aisle, is the shiz with foamies. Unfortunately, it is QUITE potent, so wear a mask and do it outside, if you can...

I also tried the watered-down Elmers bit. Didn't like it. In lieu of that I smeared a couple of thin layers (THIN) of Dap Latex Caulk (Water-based clean-up) all over my project and it worked like a champ. Just used my finger and a tad bit of water to work it into the details. Just a suggestion that you may want to test first on some scrap...

Overall, digging the original theme...

Thank you Pinhead for the advice. I never painted foamies, hell never worked with it before so before i screw up all the time spent i needed some advise as far as the prep work before painting it.

Update one thread for one project. Multiple threads are not needed. Merged the two together for you.

I apologize bovine13 it won't happen again. I have been working on the animatronics for this cannon as well. A very simple way to do it but effective. More pics coming soon, thanks for the good feedback, it is good to hear it from you guys because i tend to think Im doing something that only looks good to me but not others. I need that motivation :)
