In the novel Crystal Star, C-3PO wears a coat of purple
lacquer as a disguise. Purple is my favorite color so I couldn't
it's a pretty simple repaint.
I used acetone to take the gold tint off of the metallic
surface, leaving it silver. Then I airbrushed
purple glass paint over
paint is transparent, effectively glazing the silver metal
underneath. That way it retains the original metallic sheen.
I had to repaint the black
on his midsection and all the wires because the acetone
took it off as well.
