Modelling 101, Episode 12, fun with spraypaint!

Awwww yeah, now we're gettin' somewhere, it's finally time to start painting this sucker! In this episode, we talk about the use of good old fashioned spraycans, how to produce a 'soft mask', and airbrushing a simple camouflage scheme!

Modelling 101, Episode 11, a primer on primer

Everything's masked off nicely, but before we can start painting, we need to prepare the surface with a little primer. Also, a little trick I learned about painting canopies.

In this episode, we're taking a look at the various different creative ways that you can protect all your hard work when painting, from masking tape, to... tissue paper???
