It looks gorgeous! How did you paint it?

Oh, also my final step was to seal it with a matte clear acrylic from a spray can. The gloss clears can sometimes make things look like kinda plasticy and cheap, like a toy.

Well, the accuracy of the metal belly is proof that you are an artist at least a tiny bit... I was thinking if you had used something like "rub and buff" for those areas... I printed one 12cm tall but haven't painted it yet :)

Hahaha, that's where my housemates old citadel paints from his warhammer days came in handy. Used a heap of different shades of bronze gold and copper metallic paints... Warlock Bronze, Sycorax Bronze, Brass Scorpion, Solid Copper, Balthasar Gold, Auric armour Gold... LOL
I wanted a metallic appearance without completely losing all texture.
I look forward to seeing your finished result

Thank you :)
I painted it with a brush using a heap of different acrylics. The final result was about the 5th repaint, unfortunately my limited artistic talent is inferior to my OCD. Hahaha
