    Jul 27, 2014, 4:23 PM - Jango blaster color #1

    I recently received some resin jango blasters and I've already put them together and smoothed out all the rough spots. My main question is what paint would work best to get them movie accurate? I've got a general idea but I know some paints are better than others and I'm looking to be as accurate as possible, thanks in advance!

    I painted one set with silver on top and titanium on the handles. Then I painted another set all silver. I have to say I like the all silver look much better. I painted mine with a metallic silver spray paint and then used R+B over the top of that.

    I think I just used a basic rustoleum metallic silver. And regular old silver leaf rub n buff.


    Use thin coats on the silver paint btw

    Were the handles not painted in a light blue tone? Im modding some Rubies blaster and i am looking for the right colors too. I thought about a chrome or silver tone for the upper parts and gold for the end cap.

    Ahh okay. Thanks for this update. Ok, seems like Im going to try a Chrome paint on the upper part and a darker silver tone on the handle then.
    Lets see how it comes out.

    The best looking paint job I've seen done on these was on a thread somewhere in the Jabgo section by eaglewolf? I think it was? Before he parted out his costume.
    He used alclad II chrome spraypaint painted over gloss black. Then it's hit with a dullcote to take it down a notch and give it that more brushed aluminum look. And just a good medium silver time for the handles. There are some tutorials on YouTube of people using this product.
