My best friend, one of the best scale modelers in the country, offered to do the first painting of the crysknife.
As a resin crafter, I thought mixing the proper values of ivory toner coupled with proper sanding would be sufficient to make the product look like bone. And to an extent I really thought it was enough–painting and weathering were just extras. After my buddy took a shot at it though, I have to admit this: I stand corrected.
I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves.
For those interested, I’d love to hear comments on how you think the crysknife should look like. What do you think of the paint job in the photos? Also, my friend’s coming up with a site of his work–I’ll post it sometime soon.
Personally speaking, I think it’s terrific. I was reserving this painted one for a client, but I honestly want to keep it for myself
As always, if you want your very own crysknife, kindly shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. I’ll reply ASAP.
