Just a note to the Newbs not that I am not still fresh lol ...............If u do anything as fas as makinging anything follow the rules to a capital T. I just spent 2 1/2 hours cleaning all the primer off my mask cuz I did not wash it first. USE THE HUNTATORIALS I was told to use a wire brush and also sand paper too clean it up...........It will mess up the cast ..If anyone finds them self in this mess use a air compressor with the finest tip u can find and just put it on blast and scrape it as it blows it away. This is the only way unless you dont care about the cast..................thank you all for ur help i have learned my lesson........hope my mistake can help someone else.

Lol guys it's no prob, we all have to start somewhere; follow Predatrhuntr's painting huntorials (they're awesome trust me) try practising with different materials like: sponges...fabrics anything...experiment on the bio first before starting to paint it always helps. Don't worry if you don't do it right, u can always start over :)
I got a method here that may help you if you are interested in how i did my paint up for my Wolf bio, I got a bucket it of warm soapy water and scrubbed it all for about 5 mins with a brush (why? well if you primer it first the paint will flake off, why? because of mold release. mold release is a substence that occurs during the molding process that makes the bio feel a bit plasticy and shiney so you'll have to scrub all that off, it stops the paint from sticking basically), now for the Black Primer (once dried with a towel) and then another coat once that was dried, spray painted the bio in black paint, then started to brush it all by hand in a boltgun grey colour.
Added a few accyrlic washes and different silvers for lighting and shadow...then added in the details...alot of work i know hehe but it was worth it, this is the way mine came out just to show u:

Thanks dude.
Hmmm...depends on what works best for you man i prefer brushes, but sponges can be very useful in creating weathered effects.
Have a bit of experimenting first after u've done ur primering business and yes seel it afterwards for common-sense as there is a chance the paint might scratch off I used Humbrol Enamels Metallic Gold but you can use Testors accrylic gold, as they're almost the same gold. One thing that might help for u is trying out different sponges for different effects this is a very good method as Jason (PredatrHuntr) did the same for his Wolf.
