awesome! wish id known how to do this when I made mine
iv been looking up all sorts of 'how to make a shuriken' tutorials
and most of them refer to yours ><
im not that good at painting to i doubt that mine will turn out that great
but can i ask u HOW DID U MAKE THE SHURIKEN???!!!~
Do you mind if I ask what exactly did you use to make the weapon o.o;
I'm a cosplay fan as well, i have a few questions here. I'm planning to made an armor, i got all the patterns and all designs. I wonder what paint should i use to create the metallic colours, I heard and saw some posting on using chrome spray paints and other. I would like to know would the auto primer work straight on the styrene or do i have to do some base on the styrene first? what kind of paint would you suggest for styrene? nonetheless do you glue the styrene first and curve the piece or you curve the piece first and glue the styrene on the foam? For some part of armors require some curving that beyond the flexibility of the Foam,(like the round should pat) therefore we have to cut the foams and glue them together to form the roundness like half of a ballon. I wonder how should i apply styrene on the piece ? do i have to cut the styrene as well ? won't there likely be abundant of lines or cracks if i do that? is there a way to do it with just a whole piece of styrene? Furthermore for the edge and outline pattern of the armor, would it be better to use 3D paints or we could use some foam or other objects to glue on it and painted? Last of the questions, there are an status of some ancient creature on one of the shoulder pads, how and what material could i use to create that creature? I saw some people use clay and use vacuum forming, but apparently i don't have vacuum forming machines. Therefore it would likely help me a lot if you could answer these questions for me.
I don't use styrene sheets often any more, as my glue sealing technique usually gives a nice finish and the foam remains flexible.
sorry i suck at paint types.
