    Hey ya'll just want to share these two Revoltech figures done for one of my returning clients. I'm not sure if you all know Mark Mayeux. Anyway, after he received the Revoltech Nemy he made paint he loved it and ordered two Revoltech Starscreams from I don't know where, had it sent to me and requested me to custom two different characters. One was Skywarp and the other is Thundercracker. I just mod their heads and gave them a nice finish.
    I hope you guys like these two....

    Thanks Nemesis Predaking I used HOC (House of Color) clear blue and mixed in a few scoops of green pearlcent powder, then airbrushed it several coats.

    Thanks big hank! =)

    Hey thanks man! Appreciate the complement, I also admire your work.
    The shimmery effect is from pearlcent powder, You probly know about the powders.

    Thanks Bro! I have some of the powders but I never seem to load the right amount into my mixes, the bottle that i have(Pearl-Ex Micropearl) says about 10-15 percent. Do you just load up until you like what you see? I see that you also said you added it to a clear mix, do you think I should up the load for opaque?

    10-15% is too much man, more of like 5% specially if you use airbrush too shoot this stuff out. Too much of this powder stuff can clogg your airbrush.

    How I use it is I get a tooth pick and scoop one small amount, then mix it with any paint you wish to mix it in, then spray thin layer. The more layers you spray the more glittery effect your figure will achive.

    Your choice, but like I said you can mix the pearls on any type of paint as long as you mix in small quantity.

    Good god those two are gorgeous. I wish Kaiyodo would hurry up and crank out Revoltechs of Skywarp and Thundercracker that look like that. Those are awesome.

    I hope they would get my clients hint and consider making those two mentioned. I doubt Kaiyodo will make em right away, but I hope they do.

    I'm usually just a fan of Skywarp, but that TC looks damn good.

    Thanks Skylock, so far TC it seem to be getting all the attention. Not going to lie but I like TC's paint app over SW's app, in fact if I have the time I might make one for my self.
