1. Anyone here have experience with model painting, (preferably toy customising), specifically with spraypaints?

    Tuesday, 10-Jul-12 21:11:02 UTC from web
    1. @thelastgherkin Just enough to realize that I have a very unsteady hand, and no spray experience beyond primer. Sorry.

      Tuesday, 10-Jul-12 21:11:49 UTC from web
    2. @thelastgherkin I bet, woona could help you there. Warhammer players usually have uch experience with that stuff.

      Tuesday, 10-Jul-12 21:13:27 UTC from web
      1. @hakupony @thelastgherkin Actually, Leonkfox seems really into that stuff, ask him

        Tuesday, 10-Jul-12 21:15:50 UTC from web
        1. @purplephish20 @hakupony Warhammer's usually brushpaint from the Games Workshop. I'm considering buying an aerosol from Halfords.

          Tuesday, 10-Jul-12 21:18:05 UTC from web
    3. @thelastgherkin Yeah, don't use off the shelf paints like rustoleum or krylon, they're too think ti use properly and will drown out the details.

      Tuesday, 10-Jul-12 21:21:43 UTC from web
      1. @colfax Krylon's not available here, but that's a good tip about Rustoleum!

        Tuesday, 10-Jul-12 21:26:19 UTC from web
        1. @thelastgherkin I know from experience, when it comes to models you need to use a spray paint meant for models, otherwise you just wind up with a huge ugly mess.

          Tuesday, 10-Jul-12 21:29:57 UTC from web
          1. @colfax I wasn't sure. Earlier I found this though, which is pretty much recommending it:

            Tuesday, 10-Jul-12 21:32:59 UTC from web
            1. @thelastgherkin If I'm reading it right, that recommends car paint, which you can thin down before spraying. You may want to just invest in an airbrush and save yourself some headaches.

              Tuesday, 10-Jul-12 21:36:28 UTC from web
    4. @woona messy woona is best woona :P

      Tuesday, 10-Jul-12 21:26:00 UTC from web
    5. @woona Oh neat! Where do you get your paints? And are they aerosols, or do you have a sprayer thingo?

      Tuesday, 10-Jul-12 21:26:53 UTC from web
    6. @thelastgherkin not with spray paints, but I've done a couple customs

      Tuesday, 10-Jul-12 21:28:28 UTC from web
      1. @lyrica And sculpt work too I see! This isn't for ponies though. This is for Transformers. Lots of little indents and greebles.

        Tuesday, 10-Jul-12 21:31:13 UTC from web
        1. @thelastgherkin ah Transformers, I've tried my hand at those, didn't go as well as I wish, still need to finish the one...

          Tuesday, 10-Jul-12 21:31:59 UTC from web
          1. @lyrica basically I was making one of the Energon Basic jets into a Zeta Gundam, need to find where he went

            Tuesday, 10-Jul-12 21:32:49 UTC from web
    7. @woona Give me a mo. I've got a digibash somewhere.

      Tuesday, 10-Jul-12 21:33:30 UTC from web
      1. @thelastgherkin what about Gundam Custom Paint Jobs? you can make out my custom paint job OO Gundam in the BG

        Tuesday, 10-Jul-12 21:35:23 UTC from web
        1. @lyrica Rad. I've painted a Thundercracker, Skywarp, Skids, and Emirate Xaaron before now. I've done them all with brushwork and they all suck. I'd like to try one with spraypaint and hopefully it won't suck?

          Tuesday, 10-Jul-12 21:40:17 UTC from web
          1. @thelastgherkin my experience with sprays never turned out good, with brushing you want multiple but thin layers of paint

            Tuesday, 10-Jul-12 21:41:27 UTC from web
            1. @lyrica That I like. I always have problems with paint thickness. I tend to do two coats and they're horribly thick, so whenever I try to play with them they get really chipped.

              Tuesday, 10-Jul-12 21:44:24 UTC from web
              1. @thelastgherkin let me see if I can find Strike Freedom Lyrica Custom (my first GOOD custom Paint job)

                Tuesday, 10-Jul-12 21:45:15 UTC from web
                1. @lyrica EXIA

                  Tuesday, 10-Jul-12 21:45:54 UTC from web
              2. @thelastgherkin one of these days I need to repaint it. @carcino you don't want to see my Exia, it was from before I learned to use Primer and parts of it don't stay up anymore, namely the sword, I need to get another one to do in the Blue Black Gold and White colors as my 00's

                Tuesday, 10-Jul-12 21:51:45 UTC from web
                1. @lyrica wow the picture makes the purple look blue XD

                  Tuesday, 10-Jul-12 21:52:22 UTC from web
                2. @lyrica You.... messed up... My favorite Gundam?

                  Tuesday, 10-Jul-12 21:52:25 UTC from web
                  1. @carcino one of my favorites too :c

                    Tuesday, 10-Jul-12 21:52:50 UTC from web
                    1. @lyrica

                      Tuesday, 10-Jul-12 21:53:49 UTC from web
                  2. @carcino SO TERRIBLE I need to find a way to strip the paint and redo it or get a new one

                    Tuesday, 10-Jul-12 21:55:00 UTC from web
                    1. @lyrica WHAT HAVE YOU DONE

                      Tuesday, 10-Jul-12 21:55:37 UTC from web
                      1. @carcino that's why I didn't want to show it, I'm ashamed of my old work :<

                            2. @lyrica I hated SEED. Like the suits. Hated SEED. Destiny was... alittle better. Until Kira came back to reclaim his protagonist role.

                              Tuesday, 10-Jul-12 22:00:42 UTC from web
                              1. @carcino I mostly agree with you. 00 and Zeta are my favorite series (still need to see Victory, X, and Unicorn)

                                Tuesday, 10-Jul-12 22:01:56 UTC from web
                                1. @lyrica 00 was spectacular, zeta is alright. Unicorn is mind blowing so far.

                                  Tuesday, 10-Jul-12 22:04:02 UTC from web
                          2. @carcino *throws noodles* Gooooood evening! ~o~

                            Tuesday, 10-Jul-12 22:00:43 UTC from web
                            1. @imjustme It's the afternoon!

                              Tuesday, 10-Jul-12 22:02:03 UTC from web
                              1. @carcino Well... it COULD be if that's what your clock/sun/shadows say. -I- could say good morning, but that doesn't mean the sea taste like marshmellows.

                                Tuesday, 10-Jul-12 22:05:28 UTC from web
                                1. @imjustme The sea will never taste like marshmellow.

                                  Tuesday, 10-Jul-12 22:06:08 UTC from web
                                  1. @carcino THATS WHAT YOU THINK! *gulp gulp* Gaaaak!

                                    Tuesday, 10-Jul-12 22:08:11 UTC from web
                                    1. @imjustme Trust me Ireland is a mangoeshole

                                      Tuesday, 10-Jul-12 22:08:55 UTC from web
                                      1. @dariusponyperson Really? My anscestral lands are pooground? ToT That's so disappointing!

                                        Tuesday, 10-Jul-12 22:10:05 UTC from web

                                      Tuesday, 10-Jul-12 22:09:21 UTC from web
                                      1. @carcino You find pictures that terrify and amuse me. I don't know how they do both.

                                        Tuesday, 10-Jul-12 22:10:49 UTC from web
                3. @lyrica You still paint twice as well as me. I've got a terribly unsteady hand.

                  Tuesday, 10-Jul-12 21:53:08 UTC from web
                  1. @thelastgherkin as do I

                    Tuesday, 10-Jul-12 21:53:46 UTC from web
          2. @thelastgherkin ignore the paint chipping, I lack anything to clear coat, and I like to play with my gundam Models :D

      Tuesday, 10-Jul-12 21:40:02 UTC from web
    11. @woona Well y'see, the blue bits and the chest are easy to do as they can be completely disassembled and covered with paint completely. No worries there. The orange bits on the shoulders are probably going to have to be brushwork.

      Tuesday, 10-Jul-12 21:48:10 UTC from web
    12. @woona Bodacious! Now all I need is dry weather so I can go outside and get good ventilation.

      Tuesday, 10-Jul-12 21:51:49 UTC from web
      1. @thelastgherkin For the paint. I don't live in an asthma-inducing house.

        Tuesday, 10-Jul-12 21:52:26 UTC from web
    13. @woona I wish the garage wasn't incredibly cramped and cluttered. I'd love to have a go in there. But anyway, you've been a super help!
