DIY Metal


As some of you know I've been working on a DIY chrome/gold solution. Here is the result so far.

I've just posted videos that cover up to the chroming stage of my process. I'll have an update with tinting the chrome to gold very soon.

Click HERE for the tutorials.

They're a bit rambly at the moment but once they're finished they'll be edited into one video with excess nonsense removed.

If you have questions, comments, suggestions feel free to let me know. I'd like to incorporate them into the final (completed) video.
Thanks!

Re: DIY Metal


Gold tinting for the Alclad method is getting really close.


Some minor tweaks and I'll be doing my whole suit soon.


Working on a completely new method as well. I'll start posting about that in a few months.

Re: DIY Metal


Hey GT,
Any news on the new method? Waiting to hear what you say before I dare to make a start. I sent you a PM but I am guessing that you didn't get it. I was wondering what undersuit you went with. Would the undersuit from Stormtrooperundersuit.com be okay? The reason I ask is because they offer shipping to Australia without minimum order amounts.
