Hey freaky painters,
today I want to show you how I did the socketlabel for my "gunbot", looking like a wall with bullet holes.
What do you need?
- 1 aluminium sheet (I use 0,3mm from aero-naut, 40mm x 80mm)
- a nail or similar
- a base and patterfix or similar to fix the label
- primer black/white
- a black
- a white
- liquid mask (vallejo)
- feel free using every color you like
Step by step...lets go!
|cutting out the sheet and polish it whit a sandpaper|
|use the nail to push dents and holes into the sheet (I use the writing "gunbot")|
|fix the sheet with patterfix (I use a bowl with the same radius as my plinth)|
|I choosed a imperial fist label as artwork for my label|
|this are the colors I use (different browns and yellows)|
|start with a layer of the base color|
|a wash of darkseablue in the holes|
|after painting a color gradient from dark brown to a yellow brown I spot the right side with some spots of liquid mask by using a sponge.|
|painting the contoures of the freehand (what looking like water is the dried liquid mask)|
|painting the rest of the freehand and some lights|
|after the color is dried abrade the liquid mask with your fingers|
|spot a black wash into the bullet holes|
|paint the lower edge of the bullet holes with pure white color for mor contrast|
|wash the whole label with a very thin layer and paint vertical lines with a very thin brown/black under every bullet hole|
Finished (I fixed the label with two small nails and paint them nmm silver/brown)
You can weather it more crazy but I want for this a not to bad looking.
Have fun trying :-)
