    canopy covers

    Post  AdriaN on Tue Feb 22, 2011 10:46 pm

    Guys, im about to make a canopy cover for my Mystere. Just some advice on how/ what to use pls Exclamation What tissue is best? how can i remove the creases?

    I am planning to brush thinned pva onto tissue paper, place it on the model (with a protective layer of plastic food wrap under it) and let dry. what about using foil?

    I read about a technique using tea bags! (without tea of course) Rolling Eyes


    Tipo..

    Best way using magic sculpt or duro putty, roll them very thin with talcum powder [terra tal-1,2,3 ] and shape it up on the canopy and let it dry and then paint.

    If you want to use the tissue technique, try to find untextured type as would really look out of scale / good idea using plastic as a mask underneath ... happy modelling, brother!

    tissue paper is always a cheaper alternative Razz

    Duro can be bought as Green Stuff by Warhammer from Forbiddon Power Msida it comes a a blue and yellow ribbon when mixed becomes green. Duro is not 'clay' but an epoxy putty that cures in a rubby type material and can be paper thin and never flakes if mixed properly. You can also use White Milliput as an alternative.

    DONE!

    I used tissue & PVA technique.
    For weathering I drybrushed it with the canopy blue and added to it light grey, progressively. Until I ended just using light grey alone on the highest parts of the folds. Then a very light black oil wash with a fine brush onto the recessed parts of the folds to create depth, shadows and a bit of a dirt filter.

    I am now contemplating whether i should do tying cables for the cover :hmmm:


    For a first timer... im impressed! cheers
