Howdee, fans! In this tutorial I give you some tips and infos which you might find useful when you are working with coated card. When I was building my 1:6 scale Crichton figure I found out that working with it differs a bit from working with ordinary card. I therefore documented every step which might be crucial and tried to find an easy solution to overcome possible problems. This little tip collection does not claim to be the ultimate guide which has to be obeyed to the letter. There are many ways leading to pleasant result. Choose whatever works best for you. And if you come up with an easier solution - just go for it. Coated card is available in different colours, formats and weights. It is used by paper-crafters to achieve a special realistic metallic finish which is impossible to create using regular card. Regular card lacks the shine of the real thing. A good texture can fool the eye but on a closer look it is easily noticed that the model has a printed surface and no metallic one. I’m using my build of my 1:6 scale Crichton figure for reference to show you which problems you may encounter and how you can solve them.
