Definition of Fiberglass sculpture color:
The coloring of Fiberglass sculpture is mainly due to the shape and effect of the sculpture. Different Fiberglass sculpture coloring methods are selected. Fiberglass is a product formed by resin and glass fiber (cloth). The bonding of Fiberglass and Fiberglass can be based on the resin type of the original product. For better strength, epoxy resin can be used, and the strength of the hot melt is poor. The coloring can be divided into two forms: color paste directly mixed in the resin and surface coloring treatment. Next, we will introduce the glass fiber reinforced plastic sculpture in detail. Coloring process.
Preparations for coloring glass fiber reinforced plastic sculptures:
1. The finished glass fiber reinforced plastic sculpture must be polished with sandpaper first. If it is a plastic mold, be sure to completely remove the wax on the surface. The 240 # sandpaper will be enough to polish the surface. Afterward, the acrylic paint will polish the surface. The texture of the sanding cloth is completely filled, but it is easy to lose details by sanding with too thick sandpaper. I am afraid that the higher-quality sandpaper will be shiny and difficult to be colored. Boson Sculpture Company will use sandpaper imported from Japan for manual sanding. Every detail is more detailed.
2. Use atomic ash to fill the potholes and uneven places of glass fiber reinforced plastic sculptures. You can also use rubber scrapers and oil painting scrapers. Small places are more convenient to handle. Large areas are difficult to level. After refilling the atomic ash, use sandpaper to fill the refilled place, still 240 #. After the atomic ash is dried, it is still softer than Fiberglass, and it is much easier to fight. Makeup and play again, and then make up again. If you repeat it a few times, you will end up with a finer effect. After sanding, be sure to rinse the Fiberglass sculpture with water, and carefully clean each corner with a soft brush. Any residual dust will affect the coloring process.
Fiberglass sculpture color breakdown:
Coloring of acrylic pigments:
The acrylic pigment is one of the more commonly used coatings among pigments, but the quality varies greatly, so it is necessary to use a better quality acrylic pigment, and it must be new. If there are impurities such as dry blocks in the pigment, it will affect the overall effect. The colored pen must also choose better quality, otherwise, it is easy to shed, and sticking in the pigment will affect the overall color of the glass fiber reinforced plastic sculpture. Boson Sculpture Factory will choose advanced makeup pens instead.
When acrylic is colored, the first pass should be thin, very thin, and it doesn’t matter if the background color of Fiberglass is exposed. If the first pass is thick, although the initial effect looks good, the color is getting thicker as you continue to adjust, plus the glass fiber reinforced plastic surface has been polished very smooth before, the pigment is not easy to adhere, thick acrylic color Extremely easy to peel off. It’s too difficult to add color to the peeled area, and it’s easy to lose your mind to re-paint all the colors. Therefore, the color should be thin, especially the first pass. The acrylic paint has strong hiding power, and the thinner color will be full.
If it is required to avoid the effect of brush strokes, use a very flexible nylon pen to quickly sweep back and forth on the glass fiber reinforced plastic surface, and the collected pigments must be swept away. And pay attention to wet and dry, too dry and white, too wet paint is flung everywhere, and there will be obvious brush strokes.
A uniform color area must be completed at one time. After the paint is dry, it is difficult to connect. Even if the difference between the two colors is small, it is very difficult to connect.
Using acrylic to color Fiberglass sculpture is a cheaper method. Acrylic coloring is relatively used in some Fiberglass sculpture forms that put metal or stone imitation. For example, the effect of Fiberglass copper imitation and Fiberglass stone imitation needs to be painted by hand…
