Nerf Maverick - Torgue

Awwww  yussssss! Borderlands 2 Torgue styled Maverick! I love how this one turned out and I can't wait to do another one. The B2 artwork shows the orange sections of this rarity texture as a weird combo of orange/yellow/grey and I can't for the life of me figure out if it's supposed to be orange that's been weathered, or a reflective orange, or what. So I started with a base of copper, and brushed a coat of orange over that, and brushed a coat of yellow over that. This gives it a more corroded/dirty look. And since the base coat is copper, it's still got a cool metallic shine.

I'm working on a torgue praxis. Any tips on how do do the checkers? I'm kinda dreading it

Take your time with masking them? I now use custom printed vinyl for the stuff that would be too hard to paint or too labor-intensive to mask. I don't think I have a Praxis, otherwise, I'd see about making some vinyl for it.

Which guns outside of the maverick would you be able to make vinyl checkers for?

Pretty much anything, as long as I can get my hands on it.
