Several questions here: Alright, so I’m working on a TLK Voyager Prime. Using Tamiya acrylics, which I know are not ideal for brushing, but I bought a ton of them before I knew that. Started with the sword and shield first. I did a basecoat with a Krylon flat black primer/paint. Drybrushed silver over top. Here is the video/artist I’m comparing it to: This is the guide I was told to use to achieve the results I like in a custom (the artist says this is the guide he uses): Basic Guide to Painting Transformers Figures I’m working on some of the detail parts now with wet brush. Paint has been thinned with Tamiya acrylic thinner. I’m still getting brushstrokes. To me, this seems unacceptable when I compare it to the quality of what I want. So, A) Do you just not see brushstrokes on people’s videos (like the one I’m using as a guide)? B) Will a coat of future render my concerns moot? Does it hide smaller brushstrokes? Next question: As you can see on the shield in the picture below there are details where I have painted over (the blue crests on the top, and the red stripe down the bottom) that have now hidden the details that really popped with the drybrush. How do I fix these mistakes? Drybrush over top of them again? Start all over and be more careful? There are some details in the sword that were buried, as well. What would you guys do to remedy these problems?
