Needless to say I went to mom's place today and started painting!
|This is where I stopped last time and thus started with today|
And of course I need dem references:
I used a metallic gold colored paint. When I started painting it didn't look like it would turn out good.. but luckily when the paint dried it went from crappy looking to pretty fabulous. Yes!
|Painting in progress ~|
You can see here that parts of it has started to dry and turn goldish and shiny
And here's some more painting progress pictures!
|To the left is a sort-of-dry guard and on the right an unfinished one|
I let them dry for a while more -just to be on the safe side- and a little bit later I figured I could paint the undersides black so that, eh, if anyone would catch a glimpse of them when I'm wearing this cosplay at least the color would be black. Not so much more to do than grab the black paint can (it's actually paint for walls but who cares, still paint!) and start painting! One, two, three, go!
|The piece closer to the paint can has been painted and the one farther away is still its original color - dark blue|
