    So I've got my hands on Crosshairs... Something i couldn't resist!

    But after playing A certain Game, I've decided I'd like to add a material to the undeneith of the hood and parts of the side/Doors/Coat tails.
    And I'm also going to give him a "Clothe Like" mask for the lower part of his face.(Refer to picture below.)

    Any ideas? I've wondered if there is some tape that could pull this off.
    I'm hoping i could paint it or Sharpie it black.

    The pic below shows off what I'm trying to accomplish with the face,
    And at least the inside of Crosshairs coat as well.

    Aluminum tape is pretty good at making things metal.

    Aluminum tape is easily purchased from Walmart or Lowes or any DIY store. It's in the plumbing/heating section.

    Don't use a sharpie. They fade and look bad. But the tape takes paint well enough. This is tape with a mist of purple.
