    Comes from the same pens I used to repaint Dinobot. It's a sort of Metallic Purple. I was going to go over it with actual acrylic paint, because In person, it doesn't look nearly as good as it does on camera.

    No gray primer used. I used some kind of eggshell white. If it'll really make it look better, it'd be worth restarting...

    Thanks for the tip Hank :)

    that looks a lot like the Roseart metallic pen's purple. It looks great in person, I used it on a GF Skywarp. Why am I being nice to you? You hang out with weirdos like Allen! :puke2:

    You can find these pens at Target. It comes with a bunch of colors, including metallic purple, blue, green, gold, and pink.

    I like what I see so far.

    Right, this is where he bought them, actually.

    I'd also say that he's doing some good work with them! I'm glad the pens work this well. Markers for customs always give me some doubt as to their results. It looks like MP here is going to town :)

    I agree with you, except that I've actually had nothing but good luck when it comes to metallics. they're not quite the same as other paint or ink markers. :)

    Right, this is because the type of ink is a bit different. Both Sharpie and Krylon make paint markers that I really love. :)

    We discussed this before, my young apprentice. Your skills of recall must be sharpened!
