Here's my first attempt at a custom. It's a cheap chinasaur T.Rex, and the arms came from a pachycephalosaurus from the same line. The horns were made from superglue + talcum powder and for a cheap substitute for putty they're quite sturdy.
"I'm going to be king of the Morrison Formation someday!"
First I sprayed Bosny Primer Gray, then applied Tamiya red for the main color. The beige parts were handpainted, as well as the tamiya blue for the eyes. Copic permanent marker was used for outlining the eyes. The stripes were also sprayed on using Pylox black.
I didn't modify the teeth to make them bigger, yes I know Ceratosaurus needs bigger teeth. But I was afraid I'd ruin the figure with a modification I am not familiar with. Well, that's it! Comments and criticisms are welcome!
Great work! I'd love to see a 'before' picture too.
The superglue and baking powder (or talcum, in your case) technique is pretty tricky to refine. You seem to have done it very well. The teeth would have been a nightmare in that method, so I don't blame you for leaving them alone!
Thanks for the comments guys! Super glue and powder is quite strong. No chipping on the spikes and horns so far. But I still feel that this figure needs more improvement. might strip the paint off with denatured alcohol, and add more dermal armor.
