Custom Silver Fett...
« on: September 26, 2003, 05:53 AM »
I know its not much of an exciting custom, but I had an extra 300th Fett from buying the Bounty Hunters set at TRU, so I decided I would make my own Loose Silver Fett...I think it turned out pretty nice, and now I need to get a real one to keep carded and display next to it  :D



I simply painted him with acrylic silver paint, which was actually formulated for painting real metal, but it works AMAZING on figures and it doesnt scratch off easy.  His cape was a greyish fabric that I painted the stripe on in dark gray, then I dipped the fabric in a mixture of the silver paint and water so it has that "sparkley" texture to it....

Thoughts??

Adam, you sure you don't work for Hasbro or the fan club?  That custom looks just like my Silver Boba Fett figure.  Great work!

Sheesh Adam. I figured you went all out and coated it with real silver ;).

Neat.
