77368: Shadow Demon and Tamiya Clears

Recommended Posts

Amazing.

 

Surprising to see the original purple essentially disappear.

 

I have some Tamiya clears, so this gives me ideas on what I can potentially accomplish on my translucent Bones.

I really appreciate all of the Tamiya Clear experiment threads you've done! I've started acquiring them myself since I want to amp up my transluscent Bones, so thank you for posting all of your results, they are most helpful! ^_^

 

Huzzah!

It is very interesting how effectively the clear colors override the base color of the figure. Impressive.

Nice report! Oddly I used Purple Wash from Army painter on the Shadow & it didn't do half as good of shading like the Tamiya did for these. Being a car modeler & Tamiya being my favorite of that hobby I know the powers of the Clear colors (taillights, window tinting, etc etc) I've never had a color change like you did with this one thou.

You may have been the one who told me about the Clears a long time ago. I was working on a Pinewood derby car that was a police car, and I had asked here if anyone had any idea on making the light bar - I had a piece of clear sprue that was the right shape/size, but was trying to figure out how to tint it. Someone suggested using the Tamiya Clears, and they worked beautifully.

Splendid study, covering all the range and very well executed. I am sure you have given many a Reaperite an invaluable tool by this combination. I mean, I think I wouldn't be too wrong if I say that I am reflecting the opinion of the majorty herthat the Translucent bones have gained a whole new level in our eyes with this combination and we will be seeing its results on many a thread here soon..

 

All thanks to you!

      I saw a tweet in Japanese which says soaking Bones in benzine for about 2 days (more precisely, 44 hours, he says) removed plasticizer and bones are hardened. Did somebody tried this before? Any successful experience? Or experienced some problem?

      Beard did not come out very good on Camera.  Otherwise I think he turned out pretty good.

      Not sure of the name on this one but he turned out pretty good.  I did the eyes on this one but because of the hood the camera I was using could pick it up and the flash washed everything out.

      I really like how this one turned out.  I wasn't too stoked on it at first but he really grew on me once I got some paint on him.

      Wish I had the metal version of this one I think.  When you look at all the detail that was lost in the bones model...ugh he is a smooshie duckling.  Good enough for an NPC though.  
       
      Also sorry about the camera picks being a bit out of focus.  Did them with my phone and I see now that the manual settings I was using were a little off.  I was using autofocus but I don't think the camera in my motorola is any better than the camera on my old Samsung Note 3.  In some ways I think its inferior.
