PREMIUM – Model Behavior: Creating a Bronze Finish

We’ve used Rub ‘n Buff on Tested before to give objects metallic finishes, and this week, Bill Doran takes us through the process of turning two garage kits to bronze. We chose these two kits for the differences in their sculpts: one an organic skull and the other a piece of armor. Here’s how a wax metallic finish can bring out the details in your paint work.

  1. Would love to see some comparisons of with and without the rub and buff.

    The close ups are nice but alot of times its fingers in the way so you cant actually see what is happening.

  2. Great to see Bill again! I really love the way he explains stuff and showing his making/painting skills

  3. Love these paint tips. keep these coming. Thanks for the humble bundle tweet, grabbed that at the last minute. -dan0
