Painting and Weathering Props and Replicas Resource

painting and weathering

Sculpting and casting a piece of armor or a prop is just one of many steps required when building a costume. Sometimes that’s the easiest part when you consider painting and weathering. When it comes to aging a prop or simply painting it in a way that gives it depth, the tools and materials are practically endless. In addition to that, the number of possible techniques you could use is high. It can be difficult to know where to start. Luckily, Volpin Props has you covered with an ebook. The Painting and Weathering eBook by Harrison Crix is over 90 pages and includes:

“…all the processes for taking a replica kit from raw plastic to finished weathered prop. Geared toward the DIY builder, it covers everything from basics of primer and spray finishes all the way to advanced patina techniques.”

There are dozens of photos for each topic, including safety equipment, dry brushing, blood splatters, sealing, and more. You can purchase it in PDF format.
