Bio Ships with Paint
Posted On March 11, 2013
Continuing on with the bio-ship construction, we’ve got paint on the field – paint which illustrates why you have to let these ships dry before you paint them – especially if you stick extra doo-dads into the foam.
Painted too soon. Didn’t put foam on top of the cupolas to hold them down. Shame on me. We can fix this – we have the technology, but man, what a hassle.
Yeah, so the paint job here is meant to evoke plants, right? So, I painted these brown first, and then held the can over the top and applied a layer of green. You know, like trees?
Halfway through the process (as in, these only had the brown paint on them) my son came out to the yard and asked me why I was making a whole bunch of really giant turds. Danged if he wasn’t right about what they looked like.
I may have hurried to apply the green paint, just to keep the neighbors from wondering what the heck that crazy Warren was doing this time.
