I didn't think I'd ever get this one finished, but I managed to scrape together enough pennies to buy some flat black acrylic for the grime wash. Huzzah! Anyway...
May I introduce Anti-intestinal Fortitude!

...and for something different, a water droplet mask for that odd-looking polkadot effect. It seemed to work okay, so I might end up using it again on something else.
It's been pretty quiet around here lately, so I hope you're all doing okay

May I introduce my latest relic, a scavenged ex-service blaster I have dubbed "The Rearranginator".

Same ol' rust technique I've done dozens of times but with an extra wash on the bare metal parts just to see what would happen; the new antique leather technique outlined in my post above; and just for fun, some hand-painted graffiti, because when you find a blaster in the post-apoc wasteland, the first thing you do is personalize it

...and some cool news - I have an exhibition of my customized Nerf collection opening next week at a little gallery called PhotonFlux here in Wellington, NZ. It'll open on the 29th of this month and run for 2 weeks. If you're down in this neck of the woods, drop on in and have a look.
Have a good one everybody
Thanks Watto, kind of you to say.Wow, this is some awesome work, I'm really impressed!
The only thing distracting me from the great paintwork on the gun is the background. The gun is very colorful so it almost disappears in front of that stone wall. I think a simple, single-colored background would help to study and enjoy all the details even more.
Just my two cents.
Thanks Watto, kind of you to say.
I'm mostly limited to outdoor photography, due to the old iPhone I use, and the environment around my house is all very old and mostly in shade - this wall is one of the few spots that gets sun throughout most of the year. We do the best with what we have available...
