Thank goodness there was nothing on this afternoon. Nothing like a long session in the afternoon where you can paint till your hearts content ^^. I started out handpainting my gunplas before venturing into things like spraycans and airbrushing hee. I kinda miss the old days so I decided to handpaint my gouf this time round ^^. Its cheaper to handpaint by the way.
So this time round I’ll also try out a new handpainting style that I learn from Yaya’s blog. Also this will be a dirty and gritty gouf, no more clean from the factory.
I start of by spraying the base coat, flat black
Spraying the black base coat will provide some grip for the paints later ^^.
For the joints and weapons, I’ll be using this
To get the right mix, stir with a toothpick, for every drop of the paint, add in a drop of thinner. All the paints I used here are lacquer based.
After painting, and only one coat.
For the painting the darker blue color parts (main body), I’ll be using these 2 paints
For the first layer, I dry brush the intermediate blue, also take note, do this in one direction. Leave a bit of the base black coat exposed.
Using the gundam color blue, I did the same, leaving some of the under coat exposed . Ohh I love this look 🙂 Weathered look achieved!
For the other blue parts, I did the same above just that I replaced gundam blue with skyblue.
As for the chest area, I did a bit of dry brushing with this
Main body assembled!
Will touch up the shield ^^….bad paint job
My overbrushed tissue….I somehow feel like picasso at this point lol ^^
Will do the enamel washing and panel lining for next round
Till the next post!
