Pretty excited for an upcoming fantasy themed photo shoot of some of my costume horns, so I wanted to show a painting technique I stumbled upon while trying to create a specific look.
The parts are WSF, sealed with two coats of white primer (for plastic), sanded with a 600 grit snap on disc and a flex shaft then hand painted with acrylic. After they are almost dry but still slightly tacky, I dusted them with stamping pigments to give it a pearlized effect. They were then sealed with a few coats of spray fixative. Thought they turned out pretty darn neat.
