    Here is another custom a did a while back... i finally got around to taking pics of it with prime last night. anyhoo.. the finish on this was actually achieved by a mistake.. the figure was originally fully chromed out and my plan was to fill in the lines with translucent red to get that look of fire and rage look.. the plan was then to spary a smoke tint over it to get the black chrome look. welllllll....... for those that have this figure, you already know that there are about a bazillion lines on this guy.. i decided to thin my red and do a wash in hopes to fill the lines more quickly. after spraying, i let the parts sit for a minute and then used a damp cloth to wipe off the excess red. most of the red overspray wiped off but at the same time, it left a slight red tint on the chrome. when the smoke tint was sprayed the bronze instantly came out.. it was even more enhanced when i sprayed the gloss over it.. so there it is, a beauty by mistake :)

    Looks good. Personally prefer the fact that it didn't wind up blinged out, tbh! :)

    yep, im pretty happy the way he turned out too. im sure the black chrome look wouldnt be too far off from this finish.

    That is awesome! Maybe that's what he looked like when he was still a Prime and before he became The Fallen.

    That's magnificent!

    Now that you're talking about different effects of paint, I wonder if there is a way to make the Fallen look like he corroded green like and old penny. That would help with his "ancient" look.

    thanks! hey, thats a good thought!

    thank you. hmmm.. i did come across some pretty cool paints recently like copper. the finish is a reflective copper, like a new penny (not the murky gold stuff). im sure there are some paints out there that have the corroded effect.
