The inspiration behind this paintwork is the promotional poster for Captain America: The Winter Soldier. It features simply a heavily abused shield and the image has been stuck in my head for the following 7 years since the theatrical release.

Eventually I decided I NEED to bring it into material form and get it out of my system.

Last year I attempted to acquire a raw shield from two of the leading metal shield makers in the US, but they refused to ship to Singapore. So I resorted to ordering one from a maker in Shenzhen, China and it was sufficiently acceptable as a canvas. It's made out of aluminium alloy and weighs 5kg!

A great deal of masking was employed in varying stages to achieve the base colors and chipped paint effect.

To achieve the chipped red paint, I used tape to mask off the broad areas and refined the shapes with latex mask.

This was followed by layers of weathering passes with water-based acrylics and oils. The end result is (I hope) a shield wielded by the leader of The Avengers and that has endured countless battles against nefarious foes.

Massive thank you guys! This was a lot of fun to work on and intensely soul soothing.
What did you use on the area that is supposed to be bare metal? I love the difference between that & the areas that are supposed to be red.

Seriously trying to talk myself out of doing the same thing.

That is Outstanding! I love the worn look! Definitely looks like it would have a history to it! The awesome thing about that is you dont have to use a lot of paint!
