Cool work. That LED must have a decent battery on it. It seems like it is very bright.

That's mainly due to the reflective background of the gem and the visor. I used a pretty high resistance to cut back on the light.

Oh alright. Still looks good.



Edit: Ok I am curious, what colors were used in that section that reflect that well?

The front of the lens/monoeye was masked and sprayed with Alclad Silver Candy base. I used Gloss to secure the gem in, and then covered the whole thing with drops of gloss to fill in the sides. Its basically one thick layer of gloss lol The gem disperses the light, but its still a very focused point due to blocking everything else off with shrink tube.

Now that is nice!

I think the base is a little odd but i could live with it. Never thought of using gloss to bond lights, gems etc allways use clear resin but definitely going to try the gloss.

^Yea its definitely a unique choice for a zaku's neck, but that's what the build comes with. Wasn't going to make it any bigger as i wanted to do a quick build.

Pffft, we both fell off the face of the earth for a little while. It's good to be back and to have you back. Now, let us continue to drool over Squee's work. (I swear I hate auto correct.)
