Now that I’ve gotten the two pieces, I need to glue them together, remove the support plastic, smooth the surface, and paint them. And I am not what you would consider an artistic person, seriously, all of that talent went to my twin sis. But I must press on, FOR SCIENCE!
After gluing the pieces together, I ran to Hobby Lobby and quickly became overwhelmed at all the paints and tools out there for modeling.
I decided to keep things simple and bought a small pack of acrylic paints, a random assortment of brushes, and a little helping hand tool to hold the stuff while I paint. I figure I’ll do more research and learn a lot from just trying things out, but I have to start somewhere.
After painting the first coat, I researched 3D modeling finishing tools, and went ahead and bought this convenient kit to help me prep the plastic better next time for painting. I also bought a 120 grit sanding sponge to accompany everything the kit came with.
With everything all finished, it’s time for the reward of all the hours of work: THE CAT PHOTOSHOOT!!!!
