Thread: 90s tv flash

  1. #1

    Default 90s tv flash

    wanted to try this for a while ,and gave in

    seamless Arnold type body ,clasic plastik boot id had for years ,and a knock off rock head sculpt ,just cause i thought it had the right sort of look ,it was bald ,and im lazy
    first tried staining it with red ink for base color ,not bad but washed right off


    so i tried red powder paint ,brushed on dry ,much like rubbing in pastels as seen on youtube , too pink

    so i mixed it with black dry powder paint , too brown

    so covered it in dry black ,looked good ,velvety and color fast when all rubbed in and excess blown off

    but wrong color

    so having a solid black base color with a smooth non cracking non painted surface i went with a thin red wet poster paint dry brushed over the black ,
    looks okay but will crack if pose around a lot ,but it works for me as is

    i think if you could find the powder paint in a darker color or darken it ,you'd be on to a winner ,as when applied dry it seems that it stains the surface rather than coats it so eliminates cracking

    some craft foam, 2 watch batteries and a bit of twisty tie and gold paint and im calling him done
