    Color Identification



    A friend of mine assumed and told me that the builder is using Gundam Markers on the Razor blades... can anyone confirm this?

    If it's marker, can someone tell me the color combination or the pen itself?

    If it's hand paint, what's the best combination to create the awesome neon green?

    Thanks

    I'm able to confirm that. It enables MS' weapons to look more enabling, when applied deliberately. Having painted my RX-78-2 ranged weapons by availing them with this, it assumed a more appealing apparel than they had before.
    It looks awesome :3

    the neon and metallic are different plastic types, just to be clear

    never have attempted to make neon green, i know you can get neon green in many brands. my assumption would be to just get some neon green acryl and thin it down to spray/thin coating consistency for the clear parts and, but they are already colored, so i don't think that would be required on the clear colored parts already.

    The clear bright green is molded that way. But the parts for the Razor option kit are painted using the metallic green Gundam Marker. In the magazine the kit comes with the modelers that have their work on the Razor shown use the same marker. But they extract the paint into a cup and hand brush it on to make sure it is smooth.

    You could paint that metallic green too if you have a dark green wash and a silver/chrome metallic paint. If you already have those colors, then nothing else to buy. Just test it on something first.
    Paint on the silver/chrome, then a few heavy washes of green letting it dry completely in between uses. It may even come out with a kind of sparkle to it.

    How do you extract the paint from the marker?
