Yeah, you know those random parts of sprue you've got laying around or bitz you never intend on using?

Guess what, you've got a use...

on the other hand, a black glass enamel, and then airbrushing Alclad II chrome will work on minis.

>> No.16508724


you can get it in good model stores.

Typo: Black gloss enamel.

(you might get away with a gloss acrylic, but most of them arent a deep, high gloss... you want a really shiny, glossy surface on all the parts you want to chrome/mirror.

or, if you're using alclad, chrome, aluminium, copper, gold, steel, or even heat-discoloured steel...

Real men silver their minis with a silver nitrate bath then paint over them.

Psh. REAL men gild their minis by taking gold leaf, pounding it into a butter-like paste with mercury, then layering it onto the figure and then boiling off the mercury vapour to leave a layer of gold.

(dont worry about the shakes, insanity and death that you suffer from for your art.)

No clue if glass finish spray would work, but I prime with krylon plastic spraypaint. Same shit as GW for half the price.

You could do it if you had copper minis.
