I added a post a couple of months back with the Death Star Table Plan I made for my friend's wedding and as I took a lot of piccies while making it I thought I might as well share them.
There's the beach ball deflated beside the deathstar.
Once I was happy with the amount of layers and confident that it would be strong enough it was time to paint. So i started off with about 3 layers of a grey primer to cover up the newprint and ensure it wasn't all going to flake off. Then i did a couple of layers of silver metallic paint, obviously letting each layer dry in between. Then I had different widths of masking tape and roughly followed a deathstar picture I had but pretty much just did what I thought looked right, then it was back out into the garage and sprayed over the whole thing with a darker metallic grey.
And this is what it looked like when all the masking tape was removed, hanging nicely in space on it's trusty coat rack (all very technical stuff)
And voila a finished deathstar. I also added 12 jump rings all around the base and glued them in the holes which is where the table plan hang off when it was in place.
Hope you enjoyed the process
