    I'm working on a Movie style Bombshell. He's about ready to paint. (I'll take some pics and post a w.i.p. thread a bit later) I was wondering if anyone had a suggestion on a good purple to use. Since it's a movie based custom, I kinda wanted to go a shade or two darker than the cartoon version, and maybe metalic... I bought a few colors just to try out- Plum Crazy and Grape Pearl (both Model Masters) since that's the only brand of paint I can find at the store in my area, but I.m not too thrilled with how they came out on my test painting. Any suggestions?

    Plum Crazy is a great color, but needs to be painted over a base of purple. It's too translucent for my taste, but I've had good success with it over a base of purple.
    I think plum would be the better option. Maybe even a touch more blue in it too.
