First off this tutorial is NOT of a successful paint technique. This attempt was a failure. Not an abysmal failure, but not what I intended. But, I still think this can work. Step into Robby-land and have a look.
Okay, I've wanted to try this type of paint job forever. I don't know what it's called, I just know I like it. The theory is this. Model under the water, spray surface of water, pull model through the paint slick for a cool easter egg looking pattern.
However I wanted to try to take the pulling the model out of the water step out of the equation so I don't have to worry about pulling too fast or slow.
So I came up with this. Idea.
Step 1. Paint model in a light color. Krylon Pebble tan this time.
Step 2. Drill hole in bucket and put a piece of tape over it.
Step 3. Duct tape model (on a stand) to bottom of bucket and fill the bucket with with water. This here is where I went wrong.
Step 4. Spray surface of water with paint.
