As such, after 24 hours or so the ultra smooth surface became less smooth, possibly as the enamel contracted or whatever. They still look great and shiny and whatnot, but not as slicked over as they originally appeared. I'm not one to settle for decent, so I will kind of have to go "back to the drawing board" as it were to make sure whatever technique I use results in that nice, smooth black. I have attached a little video showing how these look not in a light box. If you slow it down you can see the less smooth surface of the gloss black, while the mirror stayed nice and smooth.

    You may also hear my son's voice which is why I haven't been able to get a few other pictures in different lighting yet, haha!


    Really appreciate all the work, DoggieDoc.

    I'm still torn. Especially after the video. I thought I would go gloss black, but I kind of like those mirrored ones now in your video.

    Yeah the video shows how the mirror is more likely to reflect thre surroundings. So in a bright, white light box, they look lighter. But in less direct lighting, they look blacker.

    The mirrored ones look more charcoal gray to me whereas the gloss look jet black.

    I'll have to run through the movie and see which would look most accurate.

    I?m all about those mirrored glasses, Andy. But because I?m psycho, if you offer both, I?ll probably end up getting both to decide lol.
    Nexus, look up DinoDinya on Facebook. That?s where a few of us got the green tie from.

    They're going to be on the cheaper side compared to my usual glasses.... probably around $45 or so.

    Finally got around to ordering this. Will be interesting to compare it to the old Kato version. Not sure if I will end up keeping both or Frankensteining them together and selling whatever is left. Similarly, I may pick up the new Trinity to compare with Jnix’s version. I have three Neos—Hot Toys, Iminime, and a custom Priest version. All are in storage, so never got a chance to compare. I never got any of the Smiths that have been released over the years, but maybe I’ll get the new one. Not a character I’ve been interested in spending a lot of money on. I would like to see the Ghost twins, although I doubt if even the knockoff companies would produce those. Niobe would also be cool, but even less likely than the twins. I have been thinking about picking up one of the Bellucci heads to see if it can be repainted and haired to work for Persephone (red dress). I also thought either the Ra’s al Ghul or Loki black suit might work for Merovingian (possibly swapping out for a red shirt and tie) if I can find a good solution for the Lambert Wilson portrait as I doubt there’s even enough interest to merit a small run group commission.
