Adam Savage’s One Day Builds: Painting Iron Man Armor, Part 2!

Now that his Iron Man Mark I suit has been chrome painted and sealed, it’s time for Adam to apply the washes that will tell the story of the armor’s age and construction! Using acrylic-based paint, rubbing alcohol, water, rags and elbow grease over his lacquer base coat, Adam refines his technique to the point that he has finite control over his weathering. It’s one of Adam’s finest paint jobs to date, and he caps off his build by trying on the costume in full!
