Hey everyone,

 

I'm having a little trouble choosing the right type of paint to use since a huge part of the kitbash is paper. I was thinking of using Testors enamel paint but I don't know how I could dilute it to do washes and if I could use it do do some dry brushing. Any ideas or suggestions?

just don't do it in purple, a regal blue or dark blue would work better.

 

he looks outstanding, can't wait to see him painted.

Maybe try Testors Acryl or Citadel/Games Workshop acrylic paints. You can cut them with water to thin them out and they should work well on both paper and plastic.

 

The Games Workshop has a Lich Purple that would work well. The purple in Testors Acryl is a little dark. But I disagree with the Regal Blue, make it PURPLE PURPLE PURPLE, there is no shame in that what so ever.

Hi all,

 

Many years later, I finally got around to finishing my Galvatron kitbash. I made some changes to the design to make it sleeker and it's fully painted now! Below are pictures of the robot and canon modes. There are more pics in my gallery including mid-transformation pics! I went with the controversial royal purple color.

 

Here is a link to my gallery:
