Shiny Goldness!

Post by Axel on Sun Oct 26, 2008 7:39 am

After a few weeks working on this little project of mine, I managed to paint a few of my Lego pieces gold. 5-10 layers later and a spray of acylic paint sealant resulted in this:



Taken with flash to make out the shinyness!

Cool! Just do the same to a knight helmet, and you have a real knight in shining armour Smile.

Seals the paint in so that it doesn't rub off or wash off easily. Basically, a layer of protection for the paint, or anything else for that matter.

The armour, weapons and shield doesn't really fit on the minifigure, I'm afraid the paint'll still rub off, even with the sealant. Something about points of wear...

By the way, the armour is just a half destroyed dark old grey armour breastplate, with just the front and back painted. The interior is not painted. Also, the underside of the shield isn't painted either. No plans to paint the rest of the axe; points of wear again...

Hmm you didn't lie when you said it was shiny but sometimes to save time I just use Sharpie's, although it might not be as effective.

Do they come in gold? Either way, they'd be too easy to rub off. To paint a minifigure, you need to take apart each component, paint it, seal it and then put it back together. With Sharpies, they would easily come off during handling and assembly.
