    Alright, it's the last post of mine for this thread. The mask is fully together and I'm fairly happy with the results. There are things I would do differently and maybe even change, but overall I think it looks pretty good. I really like the way the white cage looks. It's funny, because I ordered a...

    Shot the last of the clear coat today. Am going to wait a bit longer to start putting it back together. Overall, I'm kind of happy with it....

    So I wet sanded the mask and backplate with 600 grit sandpaper. And I ended up burning through the clear and into the basecoat along the ridge where Deadpools' belt is on the right side. Oh well, these things happen. I just ended up masking up the belt and respraying it, and then masking the background...

    Got the clear coat on today. Before spraying the clear I put a coat of intercoat clear on first. It's basically transparent, colourless basecoat. I like to put a coat on because if you use a lot of candies like I do, the clear can sometimes bite into them and run or sag the candy. This gives a fading/glowing...

    I added the blue Autism puzzle piece to the backplate. I will add a drop shadow after it's cleared simply because I'm too lazy to do it now. It doesn't make any difference either way.

    And Spider-Man is done. I masked him off and started with bright red, then did the shading with a candy...

    While I figure out Spider-Man, I start on the backplate. The first thing I did after stripping the padding and hardware was scuff it with 600 grit sandpaper and a red scotch-brite pad, degrease it, and then give it a couple of coats of clear. I did this because I need to save the CSA and HECC stickers....

    I ended up changing my mind about the unicorn on top. I decided to go with....Hello Kitty! It just made more sense to me than the unicorn. Of course I forgot to take photos while I was painting, but it's the same process. The only difference is that I drew Hello Kitty on the computer Illustrator and...

    I've decided I'm going to pinstripe the right side DP in black, so it has more of a comic book feel (which it's supposed to be). The left side will just get an outline of black. The black will help both DP's stand out from the red background just a little bit. The pinstriping won’t happen until after...

    Now that the red is masked the next step is to spray the black and forget to take photos of it. Although it it's just straight black, no ghosting or pearl or anything, so you're really not missing much. I left the eyes masked while doing the black, so that all I had to do for the beveling was use a...

    I masked off the DP logos using 1/8" fineline masking tape. I don't use the blue 3M vinyl fineline anymore and have switched to using fine masking tape from other companies. I find the vinyl tapes will lift or pull in the corners, no matter how careful I am not to stretch it when laying it down....

    And apart from the eyes and a little bit of cleanup, all Deadpools are done! Next are the side logos, which is pretty straight forward. I don't think I'm going to be putting Cable on the mask, as I don't think his colours will work with the look I'm going for. Spider-man will definitely work though,...

    One thing I did differently on this DP was use a piece of medical gauze to add a bit of texture to the suit. In real life the suit has a pattern to it and I tried to replicate that a little bit. You can see it up close but not from a distance, which I don't mind because most people don't see masks up...

    I've masked of the black and sprayed the reds. Same as the others, I started with a bright red and then went with a standard red for the opaques. The bright red has an orange tint to it, and the standard red has a magenta tint to it. They worked well on the front DP (I think) because his suit is made...

    The black is done on the front deadpool. Same process as before (am I saying that too much?). Used the same blue-tinted black to do the shading. Then came in with an over-reduced white for the highlights and then used black again to mute and tone down the white. Layers, people, layers! That's how you...

    This is pretty much how I transfer all my designs that aren't cut out using a vinyl plotter. Size and print the design on normal paper, trace it using tracing paper (both sides), position it on the mask, tape it in place and then just trace over it again.

    The lines will be faint but I go...
    In position. Cutting slits in the paper helps it conform to the ridges and curves. The transferred design. The gaps in the lines are areas that I have to improvise because of the different shapes of the shell. Just follow the lines with an X-acto and then it's ready for paint. Again.

    So I forgot to take pictures of the belt painting but it's the same as everything else. I started by unmasking the entire belt and spraying a light brown over everything. Then I masked the tops of the bags and added she shadows and texture using the same brown, but with a little bit of black added to...

    The belts, gun holsters and gun are next. Same process as before: mask up painted areas to protect from overspray and unmask the new areas to be painted. The gun will be a gun metal gray and the belts/pouches will be brown.

    I've unmasked areas that don't matter just so I can see how I'm...

    Swords and scabbards are next. Using the pieces I removed earlier, I mask up only the areas that are next to what I'm spraying. In the case of the bigger deadpool, I had to mask and recut the his face next to the sword because I threw out the original piece. Transfer tape is great but can only be repositioned...

    All done with the black. The black I used was a mixture of black, transparent paint, and a little bit of blue. This allows me to shade and shadow like a candy, getting progressively darker and darker without muddying up the design with overspray. Also, if I need to punch out a really dark area, then...
