Today is my girlfriends birthday, and for the occasion I made her a special present. A few weeks ago I got my hands on a 3D print of a Velociraptor mongoliensis thanks to a friend Paleontologist. The plan was to assemble the skull and paint it for her birthday. When I first got the parts I was a little overwhelmed by the amount of surplus plastic material I had to remove to clean the cast. But after a few hours of cleaning the parts with a hobby knife I managed to glue the main parts together. I still kept the lower yaw and the skull appart and left the teeth on the sprues for painting. After a white undercoat with a spray-can I panted the bones dark brown up to tones of lighter brown and ochre. The teeth were painted in a gray-brown color with a finishing gloss and glued afterwards in the painted skull. Those are a few pictures of the whole process. The parts after cleaning them and gluing the parts together: Undercoat of white paint: the skull parts with the different tones of brown: Glueing the teeth : The finished replica:
