Printed this at 225%. It turned out awesome! This is easily one of the best Purple Worms available anywhere.
How much of post processing did you have to do before aplying primer coulour and painting... like how did you sand tho teets and the holes on the worms back? How did you het in those hole-spots with some ginging tool?
I did a bit of post processing before I spray painted it. I also cut the model up into 5 pieces before printing. The made it easier to print with less supports and it gave a flat surface to start printing on. I didn't have much trouble with the holes on his back. Only a few had supports in them that needed to be cleaned out. I used a dental pick for those. I cleaned up the rest of the teeth, spikes, and remaining supports with a x-acto knife.
and one last annoyance before i back finally up.. O:) how lonf did it take you to actually print the model at this low layer height? just curious
The base alone to over 8 hours at 225%. I wasn't really watching the time, but it took 2 printers a day and a half to print the whole thing.
what colours did you use? citadel ones?
They were all craft paints: Applebarrel, Craftsmart, and Americana. Pretty much dark brown, light brown, dark purple, light purple, dark grey, white, tan, and a brown wash.
Thank you! Im really beggining with painting my printed model so i m just collecting as much information as possible. The Brown wash - where all did you use it, the model of yours is really stunning piece Of art in matter of colouring.
And did you adjust your base of the model? Because the originál doesnt have rock all over the stand and i quite like yours.
I did remodel the base. I added the rocky base texture in Blender.
I brown washed the entire model except for the stony base.
Could you please share with us our remodeled base? if is it possible?
