Been too long! OK, so I have begun working on my Leader Prime. Exciting! I decided I am not going to go Chrome with him, but rather just use straight silver paint. Here is where I am running into trouble. I tried brush painting the visors and the flat part of the bumper with Testors MM Silver. I notice that there a lot of paint sort of gathering around the rivets. With the visors, I busted out my new airbrush and it worked great. But I did it on the grill area and I just didn't like it at all! It just didn't gel right for some reason. So, if I am just painting flat silver with a brush, is there any trick I should be aware of? Should I dry brush it on, say over a midtone grey? I suppose, at the root of this, and I am sure it is going to be an obvious answer, what is the best way to paint metalic paint flat on a smooth surface was rivets?
