OOAK My Little Pony Fantastic Fungi.
The little mushrooms are so cool. I love the color scheme on this one. Yellow is such a nice base color to use
Gorgeous custom! I love the colour scheme and the cute litte 'shrooms!! Well done!
Your paintwork is perfect, how do you manage it?
I guess it is just practice and small brushes ^-^
A steady hand, tiny brushes. Layers? actualy what tupe of paint do you use? ive often wondered, just Acrylic? (sp?) or oils? or um..guache? do you use a satin paint additive? or gloss overcoat? *rummages through art supplies* im trying my own customs and one turned out..sticky? I bought model spraypaint a pearlized overcoat and..its sticky *sigh*
I actually just use acrylic paints... never heard of a satin paint additive. I guess my symbols are built up in layers because using a small brush (000 or 0000) only allows a small amount of pain to be applied. I have only ever once used a spray sealent coat and that came out sticky so I avoid that, which is partly the reason why I never do full body repaints. I purchased a games workshop 'Ardcoat (gloss varnish) if I want a glossy finish on an emblem. Hope this helps.
So ffor your full repaint you still use Acrylic? Because my re-paint of sparkler went downhill, the paint is al lumpy/streaky..the brush left textures, im not sure what I did wrong. Its a little frustraiting....would you suggest drybrushing the layers on? Im not sure what to do about my sticky pony, I might try paint over the sticky with Acrylic, and hopefuly it wont raise the bottom layer...the pearlized gloss did look nice though. I think ive lost my smaller brushes, so I might invest in getting replacements, as im supposed to paint models with my partner too. lol
No, like I said, I never do full body repaints. My one attempt put me off. The pony sealed sticky and I never tried to fix it, just scrapped it. If you want advice on full body re-paints I suggest you look at [link] and ask around. Small brushes are must however for symbol painting and definately worth the investment.
I hope you don't mind my saying this, but I thought I'd mention that I heard about Testers dullcoat spray sealer from Popgirl. I have been using it on my airbrushed customs to seal them and have been totally happy with it. No stickiness at all unlike most spray sealers I've tried. I highly recommend it
So you work on white bodies? I found a website that showed how to dye the pony..then I had a bad dream I fell into a boiling dye pan with a big brother and got dyed XD
Thankyou for the link
Thankyou for the link
for full body repaints you have to water down the paint a lot and do many layers...or you can use make-up sponges...and the delta ceramcoat matte finish is apparently the only good spray on sealer out there...and small brushes and micro brushes are the way to go.
She's really cute.
Amazing work in your gallery! I'm a big fan of customising MLP's. Great work!
