Looking amazing! For only 60 bucks!
Here I am again!
I’ve been reading about what kind of paint is needed for this material (polyamide 2200, aka nylon 11), and what I’ve found is that acrylic paintings are good to go! The material is porous, so a base cover is also needed to cover as much as possible.
Here we are, all set up!:
Last weekend I’ve been painting a bit, doing the 1st and 2nd pass with that base covering.
Then, today I painted the 1st pass for white and aluminium materials
Have a look:
Now it’s time to let it dry and then go for a 2nd pass. Now the white parts look like chalk!
I’m sure that lots of passes are going to be needed, so this may take some time to complete, but no worries: I’ll go step by step and I’ll reach there
Great job! That is way cool… i can’t wait to see it all painted! Great work and nice job
Looks just great Wish i could 3d-print a model of mine But no such services in Lebanon.
I also heard that they started to use 3d print for assistance in surgery, commonly in Russia.
All i can say, 3d print is AWESOME !
Cheers guys and gals
This is very cool! I wish I had the guts to paint mine
Glad to see you like it
Now…here comes the Black!
The photo shows a 2nd pass for white & aluminium, and 1st pass for black. It’s gaining life!
WOW ! That is amazing! Makes me want to send something to be 3D printed now. Keep us updated!
Yes seriously looking cool!I guess the right kind of paint makes all the difference also… thanks for sharing the progress
Look what beautiful eyes he has!
The image shows some bug fixes apart from the obvious red painting.
It’s almost done!
What’s next? Some more fixes here and there, a 2nd pass for the eyes, and then I’d like to give the white parts a glossy finish…altough I think it’s going to need lots of passes for that!
Thanks for your compliments!
