    I got 9 printers now and you think i get to use one to print a case mod part :wallbash:

    I like that you didn't go with the movie Thanos.... i'm so over movie/game themed case mods.

    I paint thanos to bring out the gluing and printing defects.

    Now I start grouting with epoxy putty. It will be a long job

    We continue to sand and putty the pieces until they are perfect
    [​IMG]

    The next step is painting with a primer and then we mask some parts


    [​IMG]
    We paint with a chameleonic purple with blue reflections.

    Then we finish with an opaque clearcoat.

    the masked parts will be painted in metallic gray

    Let's move on to Thanos painting. Let's start by masking the parts that will be painted gold.


    [​IMG][​IMG]

    After painting the thanos suit, I mask the suit to paint the armor.

    [​IMG]
    Here are the first layers of the golden color.

    Then I add some details, and I'll finish it with the airbrush.

    After coating with the epoxy, I continue to grout to prepare the piece for painting
