Paint color choices...

Here are all the different gold spray paints I've tried so far for the dome.

Alot of the colors came out much different than what it showed on the can, which really sucks because that means I'm out $5-7 dollars each time I pick a wrong color.

Some are also 2 different spray paints mixed together to try and come up with a another color.

And here are some of the more yellow-gold colors we got from Sherwin Williams.

This is probably going to be the color I'm going with. The color is called "duckling". The color looks alot better in person.

I'll just need to find out if I can get it in a spray can. And it may not look the same as the sample, so I'm crossing my fingers that it will come out right.

I've noticed that "Goldie" is not really gold, he's more of a yellowish-gold to me. And all the gold spray paints I've sampled came out a little too shiny, and some had a glitterish look to it.

Which is why I'm going with a more yellow color instead of a gold.
The color I've chosen isn't perfect, but it's good enough for me.

I should be painting as soon as I finish up with the ring, fill all the pits in the dome, and when the holos come in.
That's all for now!

Totally un-related to R3 but...

*EDIT* I have my FaceBook account again!
*sniff* And I didn't even piss anyone off this time. :(

So if you we're wondering what happened to my Facebook account, you now know.
I may or may not make a new account, don't know yet. Had a ton of things on that account that I really do not feel like uploading again, not including all the friends I had.
Oh well.

Farewell Facebook!
