Wire Rainbow Dash Painted by eightup747 Wire Rainbow Dash Painted by eightup747
Finally got around to finishing the paint on Rainbow Dash. Came out decent considering I am not a painter by any standards.

She stands 7.5 Inches tall, 10 Inches long. Approx. 35 feet of 14/2 copper wire was used.

Please let me know what you think and if you have any feedback or advice on sculpting or painting on metal please let me know!

Hi, I do a lot of wire work without tools. Did you use many for this?

How is she held together?

I'd love to get some tips from you on how to get the basic shape and structure to hold so well!

Hi, I don't use a whole lot of tools, what I do use is needle nose pliers, wire cutters, and my soldering iron. She is all soldered together. For the basic shape I may use something round like a bottle to make circles, other than that everything is shaped by hand in a lot of trial and error.

what kind of colour do you use?I never seem to be able to get paint to stick to metals.

I used a spray on metal primer, then spray paint for the color of the body, then brushed on acrylic paint for the hair.

I'm not really sure how durable the paint is. So it may not be sticking that well at all.

Rainbow Dash has already been sent to a friend. Fluttershy is going to a friend as well. Twilight Sparkle is for sale on ebay already. So far it looks like no one is willing to buy her :(

Probably will get some interest now that it has been in the compilation. I'd buy it if I wasn't so broke lately. Interested in a trade?

Reminds me of freshmen year all over but we didn't get to play with the assignment too long. Our assignment had to be a real-life animal, since our teacher doesn't like Anime or Cartoons, so mine was actually a Black/white cat. ^^U I didn't take a picture of it sadly, so can't show you it. I think you did a really great job on it for someone who's not "painter by any standards" so give yourself more credit! ^^
