Weapons locker.

Postby John11756 » Tue Dec 11, 2012 11:51 am

So i am using altoids cans to make weapons lockers for Deadpool (at a road block with the actual figure. need that ball joint still)so i am wondering, i there anything out there that i could glue on the top and side to get it to one-hold paint, and two- hide the lable (how it pops out). thought about styrene and sculpt but im running out of miliput ad about to try green stuff. im using foam inside to hold the guns.

Have you thought about a brush on superglue? since it can be brushed on you should be able to cover the entire box pretty easily and once it has that cover could you paint over the glue?

Try using a block of wood or metal rest the lid of the tin on then use a hammer to tap out the logo, I think this would be the most effective way of keeping the tin shape. You could just cover it in foam but then you'd have an extra lip kinda thing. I think sculpting over it wouldn't really work as the slightest ding on the inside would bend the tin and then knock the sculpt off the outside.

I think you should just avoid all the pain-in-the-butt work of that and just find a small plain tin, like this:

Easy is for people who don't have time to f*ck around, cause they're busy.
If you have all the time in the world, then have at the tin with a hammer then.
