I just got a printer on Saturday and my wife has created an entire Pinterest board on things she wants to be printed. Your Phoenix was the #1 on her list. I'll post photos as soon as it's done. Thanks for this model!

love it, best of luck, regards to your wife with the excellent taste!

Amazing sculptors and beautifully painted.
I would love to know what paint you are using and a brief description of your process.
Thanks so much

Hey MR,
thanks for the kind words,

  • i use gouache paint, just one layer, pretty wet for blending,
    -then I spray it with fixative and apply the highlights and accents when fix is dry.
    -finally a spray of varnish to make the colours pop!
    Hope that helps!

Thanks for your quick response dude
That does help a lot.
I would have never guessed that you are using gouache.

If I may be so bold, Is pla what u are printing with?
Also what's the name of the fixture and vanish.
Thanks again. :)

I get my prints from i-materialize in Belgium, they are SLS prints.
The fix is classic Krylon, the vanish is industrial cheap stuff, Dulux i think.
**it's important the varnish it's non yellowing, or it will shift your tones.
be well!

Ok cheers
All the best with your future work.

thanks M, to you as well mon ami!
