    Hey all. Was looking at the movie reference page, and saw the picture of Movie Bee's color chart. I was wondering if anyone had an idea as to how to make blued gunmetal. I know that there's a way to do this to actual metals, but I'm looking for a paint mixture that matches pretty closely to it. Thanks everyone!! OP83

    I would take some black or gunmetal, and add some silver or steel or something comparable to sparkle it up, then add a small amount of blue to put some color to it.


    Of course, the mixture would depend on the type of paint used. Testors gunmetal is more so just a glossy black, hence why I would throw some silver in it. Tamiya gunmetal however, would only need some blue AFIK.


    Hope I was somewhat helpful.
