Congrats, this little beauty just made the front page.

That looks so cool! I'm so printing this! ^^

Post a make when you do!

This is beautiful, very nice work.

Hi nice paint job :) can you please guide me how you make the black shade strokes ? what technique you use ?


I use acrylic model paint (mostly Games Workshop or Game Colour/Vallejo)
which you can find in any hobby shop that sells miniatures. Its a
process called drybrushing and its actually quite easy. All you do is
paint the model in a darker shade, then take a lighter shade of the same
color and run the bush on some paper until there isn't much paint left.
Then, whisk the brush across the painted surface. You can do this
multiple times (I usually use 3 or four different shades). Paint applies
to ABS and PLA equally well in my experience. I usually print using
black filament so I don't need to apply a base coat of primer. Hope that
was helpful, but any time you have questions feel free to hit me up!

Looks cool! Like the model being coloured and the patina.
