Colossus (X-Men) Custom Action Figure
Custom #:30231
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:X-Men
Date Added:June 13, 2011
Base Figure:ML Colossus
Height:7.00 inches
I'm trying to develop this chrome style of painting and Colossus is the perfect training figure. I have made a tutorial in the past, but I am thinking about making a dvd or youtube it if there was enough interest. Anyways, filled in the peg holes and ab section. primered it gloss black. Laid down some silver and then the hand detailing followed by airbrushed shading and highlights. I left some red overspray on his skin to give it a realistic illusion of reflections from his costume. I used some high gloss for the metal and sealed the rest of the body in testors dullcote. The base was made on a peice of craft wood, with broken craft sticks, wire and air dry clay. Thank you guys for the support. I wouldn't be here doing this otherwise, I promise you that...I give all credit and glory to the Lord! GLORY to GOD!

Love this paint technique, very reminiscent of how Boris and Julie paint metal/chrome.

I will let you guys know soon as I make one. I've recently discovered another totally amazing way to paint chrome, minus all the hand detailing and airbrushing. The stuff looks like real chrome. what you do is paint what you want to be chrome gloss black, then there is paint called... ALCLAD II LACQUER CHROME ....YOU paint this over the black and it looks like real chrome. No airbrushing or hand detailing needed. Just brush it on. I found some of this paint in a HOBBYTOWN USA store.... hope this helps in the meantime, FF
