Somethingdifferent WIP Iron Man paint help!!!!

Posted in Custom Workstation

Ok, so I'm in the middle of making an Ultimate Iron Man and Ultimate Tony Stark and I have two (count them, 2) questions.

Question one being, what paint can I use to make the shiny red like the Ultimate Iron Man already has?

Question two, should I leave ol' TS looking like this or should I paint the suit the light blue and dremel out the tie and make the shirt collar open and the shirt a light green?


Just wondering.

The first thing I did with my Xavier is have him compete in a disco dance-off with Kingpin...it was so bad...

Leave the suit white, open collar with a few more buttons undone, put some hair on his chest, gold medallion, disco ball then pop in the soundtrack to Saturday Night Fever = Disco Tony Stark Variant! You'll get hundreds of dollars on eBay!

Refer to cover of SNF soundtrack.

Or darken his skin a little bit, little white under his nose, big gun = Scarface Tony Stark. He can point at the Hulk-Buster Iron Man suit and say; "Say hello to my leetle friend."

Might want to primer the figure first, but it looks like you already did, right SD?

I prefer the P bomb by the way, HOLY POOP. you can get the candy apple red translucent in a 4 inch can (testors) at wal-mart roe $2.99. propably like 4 bucks in LA LA Land. it is enamel though and it will never dry on softer rubber. this iron man should be a problem though

Can you imagine the conversation at that conference?

"Regarding the super-metal-chrome paint...should we allow the average citizen to buy it?"

"Hell no! They'll go nuts with it! Who knows what sort of mischief they will get into!"

"But we already sell them silver..."

"Shut up! You're fired!"

...and that's how it went, true story xD

Holy sugar! Yeah the best I could suggest would be the silver with translucent red over, but it won't be as shiny as they used some sort of chrome paint not available to the average customizer.

Paint it silver and then go over the silver with Clear Red (translucent red).'

And I'd appreciate it if you guys would stop using the s-bombs ._.
