In Progress » Adrian Smith’s Frankenstein by Industria Mechanika » Iron Giant
Since yesterday I focused on some of the scabs and stitching. For the scabs/cuts I used a mixture of 502 Abteilung oil paint; Coagulated Blood and Shadow Brown thinned when needed with odorless turpenoid. The stitching is also done with the 502 A. oils which I just love… great colors, perfect for (and made for) modelers.
For the leather straps, I first hand brushed on some water-thinned Tamiya Flat Brown. Over that I applied “Wash Brown” oil paint and smoothed it on the straps. Then I shaded with Shadow Brown and highlighted with Buff.
I also started the metal… sooner than I anticipated, but really wanted to see how it looked with the rest. For the metal I first hand-painted the parts with water-thinned Tamiya Flat Black. Then I drybrushed Mr. Metal Color Iron. When dry I buffed it with a toothbrush. Then I drybrushed on a layer of Mr. Metal Color Aluminum (little goes a long way) and buffed that in with a soft toothbrush as well. I really like the look, but this is just the first of several layers. Later I’ll add rust over this (I want some shine to show through the rust) and some dirt layers for extra realism/weathering.
