Got some queries on how i repaint the Hot toys iron man, so i posting this out on what the steps i took and some pointer. Hope this help.
This Iron man was sent from Hong Kong, the owner even build compartment for every parts. How cool. Haha.
After cleaning, dry it and mask those clear parts.
I prefer candy color method, so i spray with silver as base, then some shading with clear black on the panel and lines.
Before spraying the red, i apply mold release on some of the parts to replicate scratches and paint chip. Usually mix my paint very thin like water then spray it on with 0.3mm nozzle hand piece with 15-20 PSI, spray until wet and shiny. 3-4 layers, 15-20 minutes interval.
Oh ya, the paint i use for the red is Gaianote Clear Red 041.
After done with the painting, time to ‘damage’ it. Since i had apply mold release earlier its kinda easy just scratch with finger to reveal the paint underneath. I even use knife to scratch more of the paint off.
