After a week of non-stop painting/masking, The plaque is finally taking up color! You’ve gotta see the leftover masking liquid film that I pulled off, it’s insane 🙂
There are many nook and crannies on the kit, the masking film sometimes get lodged in them and make the film hard to pull up. A little bit of Delta ceracoat helped ease that; I wish I actually apply it all over the kit before I try pulling up the masks, it’d have reduced the time required to lift them off.
Anyway, as you can see I’ve picked my background – an aquatic pool-bottom pattern. I think it blends in well with the rest of the kit and is soft enough.
But now the headache follows to the frame… originally I thought about gold-leaving it, but it’d have been quite harsh in contrast to the framed content.
Argh. Before I go there though, I still have many things to fix! I’ve forgotten to mask over some areas so I needed to do some touch ups first 🙁 Like the
purple patch below Kiddy’s gun, is just one of several unmasked spots.
