    Nothing to outrageous. Just had to take a break from some in depth builds to do something I wanted to do.

    Gloss black base with Alsa Mirrorchrome on top. Then used some kandy red, yellow, blue, and smoke for the colors.

    I have to joker for the pics to show the reflection. It is not as perfect as vacuum, but I like it.

    The red picture is just a red LED shining on him to give the bling fx:) 

    I still need to clean up the photos....not sure why I am getting so much light noise?

    Alsa chrome is awesome isn't it?

    I use it on a fair bit of my movie prop replicas.

    The chrome looks pretty good. I've been experimenting with that Alsa stuff lately (with less than spectacular results - but I didn't do it right).

    How do you buff it? By hand with a soft cloth or something?

    Dude, that chrome looks like the metalic greay but glossy... He looks like real metal now instead of the grey plastic. That's great man, very freakin cool.

    Well it depends on what kind you are using. There is mirrachrome and then ghost chrome. They act differently. With the mirror you have to spray/dust than buff with a soft cloth or shirt.

    Dude, I don't care how well I can work with this stuff, I wish YOU would get ahold of a MP Grimlock
    Thank you.....Let's hope it turns out good!!!

    That is what I am going for..thanks!!

    This is a great application to an already great figure. Nice work!

    You were asking about your photos . . . perhaps just playing around with your light sources and your camera settings will solver your problems. :) 

    Keep up the good work man :thumb
