ideas on how to do arm lines...

Postby gridagent » Tue Nov 13, 2012 11:26 pm

The last thread here about this was from about two years ago. Any new/better ideas on how to make/cut the lines on arms & legs (with or without a dremel)?
Goin for that "Colossus" look style. Thanks in advance!

Yeah, something like that. So what was your method to do those?
I was actually lookin to make the lines onto the parts themsevles, then prime. Unless ur suggesting to cover with mold, THEN cut/crease the lines...

a plexiglass cutter might work and i'm pretty sure BDCdiesel said before that he uses one for doing lines on he's customs.

Indeed I do, but it works way better on hard plastic than it does for the softer plastic usually used on limbs. For those arm lines, I would actually draw them on with a pen or pencil first and then dremel them with the bit on the bottom right.

A hot knife might work pretty well. I just got one and I've gotten some pretty good results from it so far.
