Why Blindboxes? JewelTone Tencans
Why blindboxes? Blame a misspent youth collecting trading cards. I think it boils down to the excitement of discovery. I want to be able to share that. I also wouldn't be doing this unless I thought each piece was equally interesting. Airbrushed silver Monster Kolor base (the shiniest silver paint I've ever worked with), covered with Monster Kolor C-thru, purple pearl for sheen, and high-gloss clear coat. I even did a chase figure: C-thru Smoke instead of color, and a generous helping of MK Holographic flakes. It's spendy paint, so I traditionally use it sparingly. Not on that one!
These nine little guys are still on track for sale at 6:00 Pacific tonight. I didn't realize there is a Glyos drop a half hour later. I'll be there for that one too.
Huge thanks again to Nik Sardos for being a willing collaborator, and the Gaspars for making OMFG a reality.
