Good Metallic Reds and gold Paints for figures?

Postby CaptainRexC67 » Wed Mar 06, 2013 2:29 pm

Hi, I'm looking into doing some Iron Man customs, but before starting, I'd like to know if anyone has suggestions for metallic red and gold paints for use on figures, 3 3/4 inch/ 1/18th scale Hasbro figures in particular. I keep looking round, but my suppliers are limited around here and have to resort to internet buying so I don't know about the qualities of the paint I can find there.

I suggest base coating with silver and using clear red and clear yellow to make metallic reds and golds.
You'll be lucky if you're one of the few to find someone who can tolerate you.

I have to second that suggestion. It's really the best way to go about it.
