hunter green is VERY different! very, very very differentThanks! I may have to improvise another shade of green for the armor. I can't find the Hunt Club green. They do have Hunter green. And, they don't have the summer squash. Looks like I gotta wing it. Man I hope I don't screw this up.
if they only have the little cans you'll want a few of them, and you'll feel an uncomfortable pinching in your wallet. the little cans are a total scam, as it's like 1/2 the paint for 3/4 the money.I've got a few more Home Depots and Lowes to check in the area. Thanks for the heads-up.
yeah, that's all it comes in. the dullcote at the end makes it all matte, no matter what paint you useAlrighty...I found the Summer Squash and Hunt Club green. The green is satin, which I'm not sure if it's supposed to be, but that's what I got.
in my opinion, black is black. i'd just use any really orange paint too... if you play with the mix of yellow and orange, you should be able to work with any commonly available orange paint.I'm done with the layers, except for the shoulders. I still can't find that orange. I need to mist on black to tone down the colors, especially the yellow. Which black should I use for that? I'm pretty pumped at how well it's turning out. Thanks for the tutorial! It helped alot.
that's what the label on my can says. i used what was available at the time. they may have changed products over time... who knows?ive been to 4 home depots and the rustoleum site and cant find true orange....are you sure thats the name or is it real orange or just orange
It's easy to miss in the first post, but that's covered...I'm in the process of sourcing rattlecans here in Norway (you can't get Krylon or Rustoleum here), and it's a tedious process. I've found a few colors that work, but then I hit another snag... You don't get rattlecans in dull/matte finishes (other than clear, black and white). Is it the same with Krylon and Rustoleum? If so, what do you do to achieve a dull look to thre paint?
it doesn't matter if the paint is glossy, as long as you finish it all off with a matte clear paint that dulls it down. but be REALLY careful. i've had the clear coat ruin the paint underneath when i've painted too fast, mixed brands, etc...On the note of the "subtle weathering" that I didn't get into above - don't forget that you always want to use a matte clear coat to seal it all and dull down any gloss. Testor's Dullcote is my favorite, but anything should do. Be careful - clear coats can mess up the paint underneath if you don't carefully follow instructions, including letting all of the layers underneath cure properly.
Saw it now, thanks. I've got some spare ABS and sintra to test everything out on before I go for it. So we'll see how it works out.It's easy to miss in the first post, but that's covered...
