Framing a poster

entertainment, Movies, Prop

I try to surround myself with stuff I love, particularly in my home office. I don’t have loads of space in there but like to get collectibles that give me some joy to own and look at. After watching Endgame I really wanted a poster to hang up. After browsing around I came up with the solution to just do it myself.

I picked up these two items and it gave me exactly what I was looking for.

This’ll obviously work for any A2 poster, I’m thinking about Infinity War for my next one.

Weathering a Star Wars Black series figure

Build, Prop

I’ve started to get into building and painting and after watching many videos on weathering I decided to give it a go.

Here’s what you need

  • Black acrylic paint
  • Small pot of water, about 10 tablespoons
  • Brush
  • Tissue

Technique

Put a couple of pea sized amounts of paint into the pot of water and mix. Apply the paint mixture liberally to the area you want to weather. Once you’ve done this step use the tissue to wipe away the excess you don’t want to dry. I find it’s also good to use some neat acrylic paint in things like knee and elbow joints.

Marvel Legends Captain America Shield

Movies, Prop

I’m slowly but surely filling my home office with stuff I love, thought I was time to get some Marvel props. The Marvel Legends series are made by Hasbro and offer an affordable high quality replica of your favourite film props. I’m planning on wall mounting this one, more on this in a later post.

Here are some images of the unboxing:
