More Color Accents for Angie the Augustynolophus

I repainted the Orange with a lighter shade by adding more Sun Yellow to the mixture.  It came out on the Salmon Pink side of Orange.  I added a Purple outline that I made by mixing the Navy Blue & Apple Red.  The first mix was so dark it dried black.  I added some White […]

Angie gets more Splashes of Color!

The Yellow & Almond have received two coats of paint as well as the Nutmeg, Red and Purple.  Angie’s Lavender Eyes are back too!  I created some templates from scraps of cardboard to add another color accent to the yellow areas.  The cardboard came from the dog’s biscuit box.  It separates the layers of the […]

Angie’s Painting and Fresh Pumpkin Pie!

After cleaning Angie’s “Dino Fest” painting activities, Angie was placed on her side to begin the makeover.  After applying the two coats of Rust-oleum’s Ultra Cover Gloss Almond, a first coat of the Gloss Sun Yellow was completed. While the second coat of Sun Yellow was drying, a first coat was applied to the hooves, […]

Angie the Augustynolophus – Painting

The Wire Brushing, Acid Washing and Rinsing has been completed.  Angie has had a Full Day to completely Dry.  Now it’s time for Primer and Painting.  On all the other Prehistoric Animals in the Park, I used Rust-oleum Spray Paints and Rust Convertors.  This time I decided to try Rust-oleum’s Brush Paints.  First Step, Apply […]

Angie’s Makeover

Like all the metal sculptures Angie goes through a process to protect her from the elements.  The final finish is my imagination for what the particular Prehistoric Animal might have looked like.  Since we don’t know positively (yet), I like to have fun with color.  After all Birds are Dinosaurs descendants and look at the […]

Raphael’s Makeover the Final Reveal!

Now it’s time to freshen up Raphael’s mouth. Again, the layering of the cloth on the body saves blue tape and plastic. Especially since this is just to catch overspray mist. I paint each tooth individually with an artist brush, so there is no need to mask them off. They will get an extra base […]

Raphael’s Makeover part 3

After taping off the area for the “Regal Red” stripes, I used a reusable drop cloth to cover the lower parts of the Raptor. I used a piece of cardboard to reduce overspray. It was a little breezy. Even though I waited for pauses in the wind the cardboard was a helpful assist in blocking […]

Raphael gets a Makeover painting starts

Raphael’s all clean and the masking with blue tape is finished.  Only the gray and silver are exposed for repainting.  The Rust-oleum Hammered paint in the colors I used 2 years ago is still available.  I like the Hammered paint it’s very easy to apply without masking.   After completing several coats of the gray, the […]

Raphael gets a Makeover

Evaluation   Actually, I had never completely finished with Raphael.  I intended to have a red stripe on the sides.  After making one on his left side, I stopped.  It looked like a racing stripe.  So, I decided not to go further until doing some research.  After seeing “Jurassic World” and later viewing the work […]
