Great tutorial. I'd be all over this technique if I had an airbrush!

That is one cute dog! Its so tiny!

But yeah, thats the best way to do gundam eyes imo, you an obviously leave out the chroming step if you want the eyes to stay clear for LED purposes!

You can brush the enamel on too! It works quite well if your paint is thinned right :)

What I learned after trying this out: 1. Don't rub too hard when removing the enamel layer, its just like Jiminboo says, take your time. 2. Make sure your clearcoat is strong enough. :)

Repeat of titanium gold reverse wash? OR are you referring to that reverse wash "masacre"

lol I luckily have not repeated the same error. It was a bit of a melty massacre, but luckily not too serious and fixable. :)
