Hi everyone 🙂 Been quite some time that I have not done any update. I have recently fallen sick due to flu. Bad flu indeed that make my head goes dizzy and sleepy. But I have fully recovered and are back in action again. This time I have managed to come up with a WIP for building Vinyl kit and the kit I have choose is the SFX 1/6 scale Predator from the Original Predator that feature Arnold 🙂
Ok here goes, After I have managed to clean up all the mold release agent from this kit after washing, I have clean up and cut all the parts at their connector points where I’m going to glue them together after all the paintings has been done. I will do a detail tutorial on how to prep the vinyl kit for painting in a later date and the places that you can get them in Singapore 🙂 So do look forward to it 🙂 Ok here is how it looks like after all the cleaning and cutting 🙂
Ok now for the meatier part of the kit itself. Painting. For figure painting there is a few things you will have to take note. It the toning of the body itself and always start from the lighter colour to the darker colours. So always finish the flesh or the most inner parts and work your way out. The black hand paint that you see is the separator that I have created so later after all the flesh toning has been done. I will move to painting the flesh tone and adding the skin dots and netting. After all that is done then I will mask the flesh parts then follow by painting the armor and dreadlocks on the head itself.
Arms and legs
Well that all folks 🙂 Do keep a look out for the next WIP 🙂
