I was commissioned to make one of these a month ago and this is where I'm at. It's all cast resin except for the black PVC under the big "shell" what do you think?

Portal gun shells are originally made by Harrison of Volpin props.

Thank you





Oh and I rough fitted some lights.

Thanks buddy, trying to learn a new skill ya know. Lot of the same techniques used here as making buckets. Lots of slush casting and molding for this gun.

Okay, no making fun of my "photo studio" but... I primed this thing, and got all the assembly hardware installed. What do you think?

...uh, why did you mold a potato?
If you haven't played Portal 2, I highly recommend picking up a copy, I have it for the PC and it is one of the best games I've ever played, and it will explain why he molded a potato!

Got a small bit of painting done today. Looks promising... Thoughts on this?

Looking good! Out of curiosity, why prime in such a dark color rather than grey or white? Seems like that will mean more layers later on to bring it back up to white.

I use brown because it's easier to spot flaws in it. Also, filler primer (what I use) only comes in brown from what I'm told...
