Printed on: ELEGOO Mars UV Photocuring LCD 3D Printer
Make new prints, but keep the old. One is silver and the other's gold.
A fun exercise in painting antique gold and silver, I first primed these prints to make sure they were perfect and I had no support divots-- there weren't, because the amazing supports on this model pulled out like a plant's roots and left no damage at all! Then I gave each a base of silver and gold, followed up by an intermediate clear coat before a dark wash to resemble tarnish (black for the silver, brown-black for the gold). I carefully wiped away the wash from raised edges before sealing the wash again. Finally I touched up the highlights with a bit of pure silver and gold and hung them on my tree right away. I can't wait to see them on my tree next year, too.
