Wonder Woman Sword Part III

I found that a careless sponging paint job actually looked more rugged than a carefully gradient paint job.  I tried really carefully to create a gradient from the silver to the black (base) paint for the silver.  It took a lot of time and stress.  Than for the gold on black (base) paint, I was fed up and randomly jabbed my sponge in the correct areas ....  Funny how I love the gold part better.  It looks a lot like the scratchy sketch lines from a *some* comic artist styles. (A style I love)

Wonder Woman Sword Part II

I'm retrying some of Kamui Cosplay's painting techniques.  One in which you paint the base colour of your prop what you want the burnished colours to be.  I hadn't liked this technique in the last because it waste a lot of paint, and I can find I can achieve the same outcome with the opposite technique of applying the burnished colour afterwards.  I will admit, but made it much easier to ensure that the burnished colour are within the tiny crevices of all of the seams.  

I think I need to continue practicing between both painting orders to see which one I really prefer.  

This is the first time I'm doing the burnished gradient really not evenly.  Oddly I really like it, although I hated it while making it .... WHY ISN"T IS STRAIGHT ... takes a step back to look at it, Wow it's really cool :) ~Happy accident~
