Custom 3D printed Dr. Fate

Another 3D printed figure (the 3rd!), using my base mesh.

Dr. Fate has always been one of my favorite characters so ever since I decided to give 3D printing figures a try, I've been looking to do my own version of a Dr. Fate. Since it required more time modeling etc I had to postpone her until my action figure base was more robust and tested.

She was painted with cheap acrylics and sealed with a Krylon finish. I used finger nail polish and a brush on glossy finish to bring some gloss back into the gold parts.

-For the cape I tried a new elastic material. The upside is that it is very flexible, and the downside is that the prints are not as clean or sharp as the regular plastics and the surface is a bit rougher, which I didn't mind much for something like a cape.

Another upside of the material is that it's even less watertight than the regular one, which lets it absorb more paint, bonding better with it and making it literally unscratchable.

So far she's the figure I'm the most happy with, in part because she didn't have eyes for me to mess up while painting, thank god for helmets.
