Blue Splash on an Orange RC Heli Canopy

October 8, 2007

This one turned out decent. Its just a paint splash effect on the nose, with a orange/yellow fade on the rest of the canopy. Unfortunately I shot the orange first, and forgot to shoot the lighter color (yellow) first. This made the yellow very difficult to fade in, as the orange would show through very easily. Oh well, live and learn.

The colors used were: silver, blue pearl, florescent orange, and florescent yellow. I clear coated it with some aerosol stuff. Not as good as a two-part automotive clear, but it's a lot cheaper and simpler.
