PART 2 : PAINT BODY AND CREATE DECALS

———————————————————————————————————

2-1
Now we need to tackle the base coat.  This will vary depending on the final look you’re going for. Since I’m doing a Deep Powder Bertie I went with a very light gray, almost white.

———————————————————————————————————

2-2
Use the handles we made from extra model shell clippings hold your pieces and help you cover every bit. Bertie should look something like this when you’re done. Let it dry before moving to the next step.

———————————————————————————————————

2-3
To get the blue-green base color on shoulders and lower body, I mixed the colors below.

———————————————————————————————————

2-4
The finished look of the base coats. I started a decal freehand on the shoulder at first to mark it’s placement.

———————————————————————————————————

2-5
To create the decals I used Adobe Photoshop. If you’re going for an exsisting bertie colorway, use the magic of the internet to hunt down the appropriate logos or if you have the correlating figure, scan what you’re able to from he packaging itself.
I made various copies of the decals, as well as a few different sizes to give me the most options.

———————————————————————————————————

2-6
To get the snowflake decal I wanted I simply scanned the real Winter Bertie. Nothing fancy, but it worked!

———————————————————————————————————

2-7
To get the correct sizes may take some eyeballing on your part. Print a few different sized logos to help dial in the ones you’ll need.


———————————————————————————————————

2-8
Cut out the paper and temporarily put them in place using some double-sided tape.
Try out different sizes to see which looks the best on your bot.

Thats it for now!
