|GREEN LANTERN: Kyle Rayner|
|by Chip Kraus|
Rayner was made with a Nightwing body and a Robin head. The Robin
head was pretty difficult to get onto Nightwing's neck apparatus.
His mask, boots, and gloves were sculpted with a bakable glow-in-the-dark clay. But because the clay picked up too much dirt from handling during the sculpting process, these parts were painted over with acrylic paints.
the whole figure was painted, he was sprayed with a clearish glow-in-the-dark
spray paint. I say clearish because it did leave a dull film on the
whole figure. But as you can see, the glow-in-the-dark spray didn't
deminish the colors much at all. And MAN, he looks good in the dark!
If I can figure out how to take a picture of him in the dark, I'll try
to post it.
I saw another figure on the web using this combo, and that figure inspired Chip to make this one. I wasn't a member of the Customizing Listserv at the time, and I can't remember who it was or I would give him or her credit. Let us know if you were the inspiration and you can see your name (and link) in print here.
