Mini Titan Custom Canopy

Newest project: Mini Titan

I painted this for a friend. He liked the mesh effect on my Dragonus but wanted black lines, so I had to come up with a technique to do that. I think I worked OK.

Step-by-step How-to

The original paint scheme was going to have checkers, but we decided the checkers won't work. So, I changed the scheme halfway thru the process. That's why the paint sequence is off. The white area should be painted before the "arrow". Because how it worked out, I had to paint the white area afterward. It still came out OK in the end.

BTW, the mesh I use is fishnet stockings. You can use plastic mesh bags that some produce come in (like potatoes, garlic, etc.). You can even try mesh shirts or actual fish nets.
Those other meshes will work but, stockings stretch nicely and they come in different patterns (don't ask how I know... )
