Cyberman Color Blank

So I decided to use one of the Color Blanks I bought a while ago and try to make a Cyberman. I decided to start off coating the figure with the silver/gray pen. As you can see the markers that came with the vinyl blanks suck.

Worried that the markers completely wouldn't work, I tried to see if I could get the eyes visible over the crapy gray coating. It was sort of a success.

And BAM! Final, product. I'm really disappointed by the markers that came with the box. I think I'll have to move on to either Sharpies or acrylic paint pens. I heard those are supposed to be good for custom designing vinyl.

  1. Well, in one way it worked pretty well, in that I can totally tell what it is.

    On the other hand, yeah, the grey is kind of streaky. I think Sharpies might give you the same problem.

    Acrylic paint pens are probably your best shot. though you might want to look at the metallic pens that need to be shaken in a project like this. They make a pretty good even sheen.
