    Ok. I've been busy experimenting with new techniques. Let me know what you guys think.

    Correct me if I am wrong but that white looks more like steel. I like how it looks it gives it that robot feel to it. Id like to see how it would look complete on that grimlock. But the difference between chrome and that white is incredible! :thumb

    Doesn't look very white to me. That's not to say it ain't a good colour, just, like ShadowMagnus said, it looks more like steel.

    It's certainly more subtle than the chrome, though, so at least i can look at it without blinding myself. :D

    Thanks guys. If you think that it looks like steel, then I am FLATTERED. It's actually 'plain' white as you can see from the pictures under normal lighting. That's how it looks like. But it is extremely reflective.

    I think its such reflectiveness of that white that makes it look like steel. I wonder how it would look if you mixed just a wee bit(very small portion) of silver or chrome to that white.

    Hehehe. It wont work. This isn't a single colour. It's a very special mix. White paint is different. Hmm..Good point. I'll probably picture it next to a pure white paint that I always use :)
