The paint started with acrylic metallic gray all
over after masking off the light up bits and bobs
with much liquid latex masking fluid.

From there the tiny bits o' tape were placed on
in semi- random fashion.
About a hundred or so bits later,
a coat of acrylic dark sea grey was airbrushed on.

A repeat of the last bits o' tape performance and a
coat of acrylic dark to medium colour grey.
Same again...
And final coat of acrylic mid grey to finish.
