Adam Savage's One Day Builds: Painting Iron Man Armor, Part 2!

Now that his Iron Man Mark I suit has been chrome painted and sealed, it's time for Adam to apply the washes that will tell the story of the armor's age and construction! Using acrylic-based paint, rubbing alcohol, water, rags and elbow grease over his lacquer base coat, Adam refines his technique to the point that he has finite control over his weathering. It's one of Adam's finest paint jobs to date, and he caps off his build by trying on the costume in full!

      I love the way you embrace your inner child and have an insatiable curiosity always thinking, can I do that ? . On a similar note I have recently learned to twirl a six gun and holster it like the man with no name ! Most grown ups would think this a childish waste of time but I recognise a kindred spirit so I think you can relate :)

    Amazing video Adam, and I think when it comes to creating art it's not about what life/people perceive it as. But how you see your work and if it turns out great or fail, either way you the artist/creator Invision art on the canvas and how it should fit into you're world 🌏. Dali said 'the world doesn't make sense', so why should 👁️.

    Adam Savage, when you're doing chipped paint, spray your paint layer, mask and then spray your "revealed metal" elements. Then, with the masking STILL ON, do a grime pass where you remove with alcohol, but push the grime into the edges of the masking - this will give you the look of light being occluded by the edges of paint, and also, grime would build up at the edges of the chipped paint anyway. This will sell your chipped paint look far far better and is a better solution than hand painting or anything. It works in 3D art, it will work great for this practical stuff :)

    The issue though is that suit isn't actually all that rusty, go to 37-40 minutes in Iron Man 1 and look at it on a big screen, there is metal tarnish from impact, spatter from welding, etc but there is actually very little rust. And that makes sense for a few reasons. 1. Tony had to build each part of the suit often fabricating and rewelding.. you should know Adam that you can't weld to rust.. it doesn't work. 2. Rust requires moisture and time to form.. he was in a cavern in a desert in dry environment. 3. if there was the trust and oil you'd have seen it in the shot were he's knee actuator is shot while the stufs exploding around him.. it's clean. Plus look at the items around him when he crashes in what should have killed him.. tarnish yes.. rust no.

    An absolutely brilliant effort throughout. Mr Savage, your painting and weathering skills are an inspiration to us all. My wife and I have used techniques learnt from watching your videos on everything from steampunk violins to RC car drivers, and we thank you deeply. It feels almost petty to make any further suggestions on top of the excellent work that you have done already, so we hope you don't mind if we make one tiny observation regarding the drive belts on the legs. As restorers of old machines, we have come across toothed rubber drive belts in many states of repair, but all have been matt in finish and none have had any signs of metal chipping on the rubber. The small sections of what appear to be chrome finish showing through the black and weathering of the drive belts are a bit like the clown in a liquor store that you mentioned during the video, at least to our eyes. Anyway, hope you don't mind us making that observation, and thanks again for a great series of videos!

    AMAZING! Can you tie in the upper legs to the hips? The upper gearing of the belt drives doesn't read right with them flopping around on 3 axes. Even just a last step where you snap a bolt from them to corresponding sockets on the girdle would 'sell' that they are driving from the core of the suit.

    How do you get acrylics to have a rich pitted texture that rust has? Like the process of the pitting but also how rust has this dust like structure on the surface. Yes at 3m, rust and paint look alike but 0.5m, that can break down easily (paint being too flat).

    It's so weird how different circles come to opposing methods. In wargame miniature painting as well as scale modeling, the method of acrylic base and oil or laquer weathering is hailed as the greatest discovery. Here Adam is doing the complete opposite, and it's really hard to decipher why.
