New Paint Job for Sinanju!



As I was looking at other Sinanjus on other blogs, I felt like my Sinanju should be a little more unique, so I decided a color change was in order. Painting it wasn't too bad, I just removed all the armor pieces and laid on a couple coats on gloss pink. Really like the new color, just feels right to me, and I haven't seen it been done before. I know some of you probably preferred the original red, but that was too boring! Look at that hot pink, not girly at all!

Fortunately I decided to leave the other colors alone, I thought about metallic purple instead of gold though. Of course, that would have taken a lot longer. Or maybe I could have switched the black to white, hmm, no I think the black still contrasts nicely with the pink. Luckily, I didn't mess up any parts with the paint (this was my first time spray painting a kit). Sorry I don't have any WIP photos, this whole thing was kind of spur of the moment, tell me what you think!

EDIT: It's not actually pink now.  Behold, the wonders of Photoshop!

    As for pink Sinanju, I'll address that in my next post. Interesting that I got so much praise, it was really supposed to be... more of a joke. Oh well, thanks for all the comments nonetheless!
