Painted Iron Man
I took some time out from my day to day to actually paint one of the 3D models I printed. I wanted this Iron Man to be super smooth so I sanded it and filled it and sanded it again. It's genuinely quite a lot of work to make it perfectly smooth. I didn't use an air brush so there were 3-4 layers on the gold parts and 2-3 on the red ones, the whole thing was finished in spray laquer to make it shiny. You can still see some of the print lines through the paint job so I think I'd end up using more filler and even more sanding for a serious job but this came out pretty well. The eyes were filled with a metallic blue, in case you're wondering.
