Made these for my sister and brother in law.
If anyone was wondering how black acrylic turns out when it’s engraved, here ya go!
Since the engraving is so deep, I decided to try laying some paint into it. Surprisingly easy given the size of these pieces. I was using Testors acrylic model paint and the cruddy brush that comes with them. Load the brush up nice and wet, and the acrylic literally pulls the paint off it and flows it out nicely. I needed to use a toothpick to coax the paint on the Punisher keychain. I haven’t cleaned the paint off the top surface yet, waiting or it to dry then I can hit those little areas a bit easier without sticking my thumb into the skull (again) LOL. Yeah, I’m leaving that thumbprint in there… I’m lazy… and it gives him character.
Edit: And Yes, next time I will leave the masking on until after painting. I got all excited! hahaha!
