The idea was to make different details so you can customize the armour. So the shoulder plates have plain version. I will be making a dragon version, griffon, undead, and lion. When I eventually get the chance
I use a chrome paint. There are plenty out there. The quality of the finish is all in the prep. It has to go over a perfect gloss black. I have been using poly plasti flex by nottcut but I don`t think its good enough. I will soon be getting a Graco machine.
