This documents the process of me theming a NF after Captain America. It will cover all the basics, from washing to finishing.

Things marked with a "*" are optional.

Materials:

Blaster to paint

Metallic Blue (60:20 ratio, Vallejo Magic blue and Metallic medium)

Metallic red (60:20 ration, Vallejo Scar Red and metallic medium(you can use Warlord Purple instead of Scar red, for a darker red))

White enamel or acrylic

Silver wash

Darker Silver wash*

Silver acrylic or enamel*

4 different brushes ( I used No. 6 and Cool

Star stencil*

Patience
____________________________________________________

 Notes -

-You don't have to use the paints I used. Any brand will work, just don't use cheapo's

- I used black as a primer, you can use any color.

____________________________________________________

Before-






1. You're gonna want to add wash all over the blaster. This will give us a nice brushed metal effect, and make it shimmery. This step is not needed, but I wanted extra shine. I made the silver wash by watering down some silver paint, then 5 drops of metallic medium.

The wash -



Some Pics like this are crappy because its from my phone. As far as I know iPhones don't have macro, so deal with it.







2. Paint the blue we talked about earlier on selected areas, I did the trigger guard and the line thingy. Use quick, even strokes. You don't have to get everything in one coat, I used 3 coats for this.

First coat -





3. Now for the red. Apply it to the selected areas, using 3-5 coats. Once again, use quick, even strokes.

Note- If you're using black primer, lighten the red, for white primer, darken it.

1st coat -



3rd coat -


4. Stencil work now. I used red as a base, then put the stencil down and used white over it. I used enamel, because its heavier then acrylic and colors won't show through.

Apparently, my details had a bucket-o-fail for breakfast. -






5.* Almost finished. You're gonna want to dry brush in some silver, to give it a worn effect. You can also add a black wash in at this point, too. I drybrushed in some silver around the edges, then went over it with 2 washes (Blue and red)

You can sorta see the "scratches" -






6. Clear coat it now. I use 3 coats and give it 24 - 72 hours to cure completely. If you rush, you get crap.










Now you're finished, so go out and show your American pride.


Any questions, comments and flames are welcome.

Pics are now up.

This gives you an idea of what it will look like - clear coat is drying right now.

It came out pretty nice, but my detailing skills ate a bucket-o-fail for breakfast today. What I mean is the star looks like a 3 year old tried painting it, so I'll order some stencils then do it. But that part is just white for now.

Pics are now working.

This is my way of making a good paint job.  To make the outside, use the OTHER side of the paint brush.  Simply dip the end in the pain and "sketch" the outline.  This will help the lining be smooth and give you a good starting.  After that simply fill in and you're done.

I'm lazy, so I used a stencil. It failed. I'll probably just get a decal for it, my hands aren't the steadiest. I lightened the red a little too much, as it looks pink...
