:tflaugh   :tflaugh  CUSTOM PAINTED CYBER PLANET KEYS!!!!  :tflaugh   :tflaugh

 

I've been planning this ever since i first saw Prime/Ransack not having painted keys. so I've taken out some Testors enamel Silver and Gold and have been slowly painting their planet keys.

 

The skinny is simple: small tipped brush and a quick mix : 2 parts paint to 1 part thinner, works with dab brushing (short, lifted strokes). The one thing I'm being sure about is not painting the whole key at once so I'm doing it in halves. Clean up is easy with some Brush cleaner and a toothpick.

NOTE: the shot of the speed key was taken before I cleaned up my mistakes.

I'll post the finished ones later on!

well the silver dries a little darker than that but this is with the flash on on my camera. In the meantime I just put the final coats on and then I'm going to let them dry for a day. I'll come back with some semi gloss protection spray and clear coat the surface. Somewhere between then I'll do some touch up on Prime's autobot emblem on the key as well.

Looks great. :thumb I'll have to give that a go with Ransack, and Vectors key someday.

 

On a secondary note I still have to repaint Hotshot's shoulder insignia. I can't believe it just rubbed off. :tdown
