Tutorial - Panel Lining with Gold/Silver/Metallic Colors



Due to many inquiry regarding my panel lining with Gold/Silver/Metallic color, I have decided to make this tutorial on fan service;)

Do take note that this is normally for straight builder like me but the same concept could be applied to painted build as well, only you would need to use different color bases :)

Do check out http://forum.lowyat.net/topic/1397850 for more in-depth information regarding painting ;)



Section 1: Preparation

Of course, you would need the metallic marker of your choice ;) I have here: -
  • LBX Gold+Silver+Gun Metal set (essentially quite the same with Gundam Marker),
  • Gundam Marker Metallic Green,
  • Gundam Marker Metallic Red,
  • Artline Calligraphy Marker Gold, and
  • Silver Permanent Marker gotten from bookstore.



You would also need the Mr. Hobby Paint Remover, and some tissues as well ;)



Next of course the parts you want to panel line :P




Section 2: Silver Panel Lining with 3rd Party Marker

Not necessary to use Gundam Marker... some 3rd party permanent markers also usable ;) Let start with the Silver marker :)



Before panel lining...



Panel line the detailing with the silver marker. Don't worry about the excessive paint ;)



Soak the tissue with a bit of paint remover...



Wipe the excessive paint with the tissue using light force...



The excessive paint would be wiped off but the silver in the detailing would stay ;)



Here's the close-up :)




Section 3: Gold Panel Line

I'm using the LBX Gold Marker for this demonstration ;)



Before panel lining...



Same thing, just draw along the detailing with the gold marker...



Wipe off the excessive paint with paint remover on a piece of tissue paper...



And here you go ;)




Section 4: Metallic Red Panel Line

Gundam Marker Metallic Red would be in action here ;)



Before panel lining...



Again, just draw along the detailing with the metallic red marker... and making sure the ink flow into the fine lines ;)



Wipe off the excessive paint with paint remover on a piece of tissue paper...



Done ;)



So guys, what do you think? Not too difficult right? Enjoy some innovation even with straight build ;)

Until next time... Ciao!

    1. The same concept could be applied to painted build as well but you need to use different color bases or different types of paint :)

      Basically, you need to know nature of the paints, as different type would have their own paint remover; and you also need to know if the different type of paint/paint remover will dilute/mix/remove the existing layer...

  4. wow... I'm impressed!Thank you alot for this !!!
    But say... I'm having an Acetone bottle...and it kinda works, too. But I can't clean it nicely :/ also must the line be deep enough? Cause HGUC White Unicorn Mode has so many lines not that deep...

  5. can I use this technique to the part to the part which already painted with lacquer, I'm afraid when I use the remover it will also affect to the painted part, or is it okay to use any other thinner as replacement??

    1. The same technique could be used but you need to know the nature of the paint you used. Better do more reading on the web ;)
