sry for being so late with updating you with my latest BIG project.
I'm working on this costume since January and finally I see the end of the long tunnel coming XD.
I wanna show you my now finished Saber Gift Figure armor!
If you don't know that version, you can see the reference here ---> www.ncsx.com/2009/012609/fate_…
If you like what you'll see please visit my facebook artist page as well ;D. There are always ALL progress photos form the stuff I am working on ^.^ ->>> facebook.com/calssara.cosplay
well let's start with the raw armor parts, completely unpainted.
I used WOBLAS FINEST ART as my material. It's a thermoplastic material with a mix out of plastic and wood. It's close to Wonderflex, but thicker, more durable and it's easier to make round shapes l shoulders, knees and chest plates. You can also melt the material together and use it as thermoplastic modeling clay!
This is my VERY first armor and even a bloody beginner like me could work with it. All you need is just a scissor and a hot-air-blower. That's really all ;D. So no special machines or expensive equipment required.
You can buy this awesome material from Cast4Art, a German enterprise that also ships to other countries. You can visit their website here www.cast4art.de/index_english.…
before the real painting comes, I had to use some primer color. It makes the surface smoother and the real color that I will paint after the primer color will not fall off.
After this, the real painting can start. I wanted to let my armor look more realistic and worn in battles before. So i did not want to have it all clean and just sprayed silver. I decided to drybrush it with many shadows and highlights. It is also my first time drybrushing something. At first it was really not that easy but at some point it started to be really fun <3. Here big thanks to Elffi who taught me patiently XD;
aaand done <3!
Uff, that was really A LOT of work. From now on, I'll have even more respect for people who do armors! It really takes a long long time to form everything. Well, for my first armor, I am really confident with the results.
