Grey, Metalic Grey, or Silver? Which paint would be best for this?
Hey. This is for my Jiraiya costume again.


I'm trying to sort out the parts on tha back of the hands and I'm not sure what the best colour would be. I'm going to be painting this acrylic. Should I use Grey or silver for it? Also should I try a metalic colour, or would the varnish make it shiny enough?

I've been using metallic silver spray paint with gloss varnish for props and it works great for getting a nice metal-like finish. You could also use chrome silver, which I've seen other people use with success, but haven't tried myself!

First of all, cannot wait to see this finished! Been tempted to do Yukiko's Persona but the giant sakura pom pom things put me off.

Secondly, I think a light grey matte paint with varnish would look fine. I think some metallic paints almost look kinda glittery which puts me off.

Good luck!
