Unpack model kit pieces. Using your acrylic paints, paint the entire base of the quadcopter. Apply lighter colors around the legs for a blended effect. Keep applying different paint colors and blend for a more dramatic look.
Take your masking tape, and tape off the areas that you do not want painted over. Paint the blades and leg stands desired colors.
Using the fine tip brush, paint in any detailing. Clean up areas with Micro Sponges.
