    Here's my return to enamels folks, been away from them for 16 years. This is also my first time using Krylon Fusion paint, and I must say I'm hooked.

    I started by tearing him apart, cleaning each piece, then sprayed Fusion Satin black. After that, each piece was hand painted using Testors enamels, and finally clear coated with Testors gloss clear.

    I tried not to over detail this guy, keeping him mostly black. I'm happy with the overall look, havent seen one like this yet, so I figured it needed to be done. I'm also very happy with the new paints, I let him cure for a week and there was not a hint of chipping anywhere. Enjoy!

    Thanks man, it's Testor's Model Master Brass, which I thought was more gold looking than their gold.

    I completely agree, and it works surprisingly well with this mold . . . .






    . . . . from what I can tell. I'd love to see a few more photos that were a bit more in focus. Keep up the great work :thumb
