Here’s the first of my Work in Slow Progress of MG Sinanju…
Let me know your honest opinion about the gold paint job. The painting really put a strain on my eyes (and I’m already kinda blind as is ^^;). It took probably a little over two hours to paint all that gold in but should probably go faster and smoother now that I got the hang of it. Masking the parts is futile as I find it faster and easier to just paint carefully and clean up whatever mess I have afterwards with a toothpick and rubbing alcohol.
I’ll still touch it up some more before spraying top coat on it. Judginging from the impurities, I’ll say one needs to apply at least 5-7 layers of gold paint (handbrushed) to look the most solid. I only applied three.
Oh how I want to give up on this model. Laziness kicking in XD. This project will probably carry me into February… *sigh*
Contest update: The 1/144 Rasiel Giveaway only have 11 entries so far and deadline is this friday so I’m thinking I could just put everyone into the finals ^^. Is anyone else still preparing theirs?
