77130 Beetle Swarm (Bones)

Here's a quick one I did. Randomly went into the box of Bones (KS I) and pulled these out. Pretty simple paint job.

 

First off, 9064 Brown Liner as both primer and base color. Next, 913 Forest Green, 9134 Clotted Red, 9050 Antique Gold, 9126 Gunmetal Blue, and 9280 Nightmare Black were all used to paint individual beetles. Afterwards, I probably would have stuck with just the red and gold. Those looked the best on the base color.

Love the uber glossy finish - really works for the bugs!

Forgot to mention that! Sealed them in my special no-acetone Krylon clear matte, then went over the bugs with straight Future floor polish. Got the effect I was looking for.

 

Now if I would have just made the contrast better. The darker bugs merge too much into the background. Still, less than an hour's worth if time and made me happy.
