What color should a custom Silver Surfer be?

Posted in Custom Workstation

OK, the title sounds dumb, but here me out. After missing out on a chance to get Silver Surfer (if mister Kyle Robinson sees this he'll know why) I've decided to try and make my own. I was looking at paint options and I saw Silver and this Metalic Chrome. What would you guys (or gals) go with? I'm afraid the Chrome color may be too reflective but Silver paint may not look, well...silverish enough.

Also, while I'm here, does anyone have a spare magnetic surfboard they're willing to part with? I don't have much to offer in trade except for...ahem.....cash. Thanks.

Interesting. How can I get some of those?

you can buy a pack of the boogers at Office Depot or Staples for about $10 - I think you get enough to do like 25 business cards, which would be 25 2" x 3.5" self stick magnetic sheets. Problem is, they aren't super strong magnets like rare earth magnets so bear that in mind. They are however quite magnetic and will probably work just fine for the surfboard!

I have magnetised business cards from a friend of mine - theyre used for fridge magnets and flexible and easy to cut
you could cut it to shape quite easy

I'd also say to go with the chrome effect

Another question for anyone who's worked with Chrome paint. Does it leave plenty of fingerprints? I read somewhere that it's also useless to put a clear coat over it because it turns chrome into dull gray. Anyone experience this? Oh, and cowboyink, that's acutally my plan, to take the XMC Iceman and turn it into Silver Surfer (inspired by none other than Kyle).

I know my walmart has a couple of the re-releases on the shelf and I have one in box too if your really lookin for one, or if you have a XMC iceman you have the body, and I have a head

I'd go with Chrome, but be sure it's a kind of paint that won't melt your figure.
