A quick step by step for the two Kaiju Dualos I just completed for a collector.
The request was for a Dualos in Galaxy form ( right side ) and a Monster Eyes version ( left side ). What made this particular job hard was that various deep textures in the sculpt. Which meant I had to go back in and patch up the round edges of the eyeballs … otherwise they looked too jagged.
Using Monster Kolor paints, I start by base coating the black vinyl with Charcoal color. Once this is dry I go in with a paint brush and dot each star by hand .. and hand paint the eyeballs. I use a plastic template for the iris and pupils.
Dot, dot, dot … no short cuts here … ;-P
Once the dotting is done, it’s time for airbrushing white. The Galaxy swirl gets white, as do do various stars … this results in the shine or glow you see.
I move onto adding the colors with an airbrush … various C-Thru Red, Pink, Yellow, Blue, and Greens are used …I’m glazing over the white at this point … a light touch is needed with each color .. I walso let some colors over lap , say a yellow over a blue to create a transition of green, etc …
The figure is than sprayed with Color Change ( this gives the glittery effect later on ). The teeth are hand painted using silver paint.
Above, the final step is to clear coat the whole figure. This step seals the paint but also brings out the depth you see when you hold these customs in your hands 😉
I like to add a little something to the backs of these customs.. in this case a pair of comets
or a skull on this one ;-P Over all I was pleased with how these came out ..they were a lot of work (!!)
