Looking around in internet for good transparent/semi translucent filament, We found this brand. All the cheap brands we tried are decent, but we wanted something better for some fx. This time we tested this “Premium” Pla.
This Czech manufacturer have a broad range of pla, abs, nylon etc. In this case we are focus in their line of Crystal Clear Pla.
For this second part I’m sketching all the basic color with the airbrush ( I’m an airbrush maniac, but you can use a brush) and highlighting both the blazing hot and smokey dark parts of the explosion.
Once I’ve white primed the parts where I don´t want the light to go through, I made a first red coat over the 90% of the explosion.
It’s crazy how many different filament you can find on the market. Solid or transparent colors, different textures, varied lengths, brands, and prices depending on whether you are buying it from America, Europe, Asia or Wakanda. And as always, is up to you to choose the best deal for YOU.
On this occasion we want to talk about the brand we use almost everytime.
Enotepad is a cheap and medium quality filament. We print all the BattleFx bundles with it. We’ve tested a wide range of filaments, and this one has a good quality/price ratio. You’ll easily find 1kg/1.75 mm for 15 or 17€. Enotepad has a good saturation in comparison to the rest of lowcost filaments, specially red and green colors. Depending on the color we set the printer to keep it between 200 and 210 degrees.
