so what looks like metal is just painted cardboard? That's a pretty amazing paint job

Amazing works, my compliments!

How did you made the "coarse" (i don't know if it's the right word) surface of carboard?

Do you paint the 'shadow' and 'residue' of the metal onto the book before you apply the 'metal' layers, or do you paint around them?

:whisper:First a layer of matte black, later, various shades of metallic colors:)

Ah I see.
And how do you get the worn-down appearance around each piece? Is it simply painted that way or is there a special technique that you use to get that effect?

Everytime I see one of these things, I wonder how you made if from cardboard ._.' ...

Did you learn to make these by yourself, or from someone/something else?

Hello, the secret is in the final painting, modeling is patience.
I am self-taught, and like everyone, I have always influences.:)Thans for the fav!
Gingercake725's avatar
You're welcome ^^. I kind of guessed it was in the painting (looks like textured paint?), I'm just flabbergasted how you can keep the cardboard so sturdy... guessing the paint helps with that too xD.

It's a hard cardboard, hold several layers of paint.
