"Prepare to be Judged!" Here is an offer of a lifetime and a first for my Shapeways. I am offering the Dredd bages as a custom job with Your name. The procedure is simple just contact me and I'll pop your name on and upload to a private URL on here for you to order.
As far as painting goes I suggest the following simple method which works.
1: Paint or spray the whole badge flat black
leave until completely dry
2: Take a gold or brass metallic paint and soak a paint brush with it, thoroughly wipe of
the gold leaving a dry brush and then lightly brush over the whole thing excluding the non raised
parts. The technique is used frequently in prop design and minatures dry brushing
3: Seal with a varnish or clear coat lacquer and enjoy :)
*IMPORTANT* This has been updated recently as I was sent photos of an apparent screen used prop by a friend in the industry. There is accurate beveling, sloping and font used for Dredd.
