Well that's a first. While blending the paint, I overworked the surface, and the paint delaminated. I tried to fix the problem, but more paint peeled off.
Oops! A very big oops.
Ooh, what a horrid mess I made.
Then I tried to clean the area, but only made it worse. And as you can tell this is a very sad story that ends with me stripping the model back to bare metal.
However the arms turned out well, so there's that to be grateful for. Count your blessings.
|Not a brilliantly sharp shot, handheld, but hopefully you can see the blending?|
And because I knew I was entering uncharted territory, trying out new techniques, I still have the other three models to practice on. I'll try not to overwork the paint and avoid making the same mistake twice.
I see myself rewatching a blending tutorial again, paying closer attention to how to not delaminate the paint.
So that all from my workbench for this time. Catch you on the bounce next time.
