knashdx's customs
« on: January 19, 2009, 07:01 PM »
First of many customs to be posted. Most are not Star Wars as they have ben the easiest to do. This is my most recent and easiest custom to date. Took an extra animated C-3PO (right) and painted him silver to make TC-14. I still need to slap a coat of clar paint on him to preserve the silver paint.

I have been told to go to hell; well at least I will know everyone there!

That's pretty cool Ryan!  The paint looks like metal without being too shiny.  What kind of paints do you use and where do you get them?  We need to talk to Steve #2 about hosting another custom party in the near future...

Can't wait to see the rest of your customz!

Normally I use either Model Masters or Tamiya Acrylic paints. I have found that Krylon Spray paint works well for large areas, and in places that could potentially chip, crack, or flake due to movement. For this I used a Metalic Silver Sharpie. I sacraficed a C-3PO by spray painting him and wasn't happy with the way he turned out. I couldn't keep the glowing eyes feature and I didn't like how the paint dried around his eyes so I went with the Sharpie instead. All I have to do is get a coat of clear spray paint on him and then he is done.

Nice work!  That's actually very cool considering it's Sharpie.  I'd love to see it in person.

I've been thinking about custom party lately.  I need to scour the calendar and see what works.

The dark side of the Force is a pathway to many abilities some consider to be unnatural.
