Metallic Painting Techniques – Real Metal Effects – PREVIEW


  • Mike Austin says:

    Soooo have you done any thing from a movie in the last 10 years…..while I love the classics I mean Predator, Jurassic Park, Aliens, Terminator seem to be what you cycle through. Any thing new?

  • Stan Winston School says:

    Jesussaves – Um… Stan's been gone for four years. Til the day he died, his company was churning away at little shows like Avatar and ALL the Iron Man Films to name a few and about 100 commercials a year. Since his passing, the studio, now taken over by his four top artists and renamed Legacy Effects, has been working on tiny web series like Real Steel, the NEXT Iron Man, Robocop, the Life of Pi and about 100 commercials a year. How about YOU? This is fun! And Merry Christmas!

  • Fourth Movement Productions says:

    I kinda of think this would be cool if you could do some DIY tutorials for those young filmmakers like me, who want to become better with FX and making movies. maybe showing us how the pros do it then how we could do it

  • Arick Szymecki says:

    that's what the school is for. this video is essentially a teaser for just one of the courses available at the site.

    personally i subscribe monthly to it and it's worth every cent, even for someone like me already doing fx work for films.

  • michael studholme says:

    What is that stuff you are putting on at 1:00 min in?

  • predator666pain666 says:

    merry christmas next lesson is steve wang painting a full pred suit?

  • cos.n.fx says:

    i do alot of armor and costumes and think this is great for someone just learning how to paint their armor. i have seen alot of different techniques for painting this kinda stuff but i love the look from using what looked like a finger nail file and wet paint. i go easy and use large paint brush just dry brushing it all

  • TheShadowedOne1 says:

    More BTS of Predator! Jurassic Park! and more! PLEASE! I love it!

  • JnAStudios says:

    My eyeballs almost popped out at the amazingness!

  • KHRONIIKZ says:

    Hi there, do you have any tips for getting a metal effect when your base colour isnt black or sliver ?

  • Stan Winston School says:

    Not sure what's different about what your asking for and what we're DOING! Have you been to the link at the top of the description? We have 150 hours of tutorials to help young filmmakers and Creature Effects Artists to DO IT! They're ALL DIY and they're ALL ONLINE. Gotta go to our school and then let me know what ewe can do to improve THAT experience. Maybe even tell us how to make it clearer that we're already doing what you want! Best~ John

  • Stan Winston School says:

    I'll pass this onto Jamie. I know we plan to do another lesson on metallic color effects. You may need to stay tuned! – John

  • Stan Winston School says:

    Pred! We're HOT ON HIS TAIL on that… he may need a BIT more encouragement… but that's what 2013 is all ABOUT! – John

  • Stan Winston School says:

    Arick~ Thanks for the support. It warms our hearts to hear that Pros and Enthusiasts are finding what they need at the school. You KNOW we have a TON of great stuff coming. I hope you stay with us because this year is going to come with some mind-blowing material. KEEP ON MAKING MONSTERS! – John

  • Stan Winston School says:

    ka5p3r~ A perfectly valid technique. Of course… This one blew my mind. Jamie is a true pro. – John

  • Stan Winston School says:

    Tons more of both on the way. Also… The other movies haven't even been TOUCHED. We have so much coming. – john

  • KHRONIIKZ says:

    Thank you very much John ๐Ÿ˜€

  • cos.n.fx says:

    i really love how you guys take the time to respond to posts and comments here on you tube and answer questions from member and viewers at the SWS. there are still two vids im waiting on the second half of but can wait because i know there are hours of film.

  • Sonic7o7 says:

    Love the paintjobs. Gonna have to try these out now.:) thanks for the help

  • predator666pain666 says:

    thats made my christmas… time to harass steve on facebook now

  • Dreadnaught396 says:

    I'm pretty much sold on getting a subscription with the school, however I'm there already a lesson on how to make things like that helmet from scratch? I would be an absolute beginner to this sort of thing but special effects has always been a HUGE interest of mine.

  • sickphyschotic says:

    This is awesome. I got a movie FX DVD with Jordu schell sculpting Demos AND a new youtube video From you guysfor Christmas. thanks for the cool videos, I always enjoy 'em!

  • TheShadowedOne1 says:


  • Alexander Komerdelj says:

    I was just wondering if there was a more in-depth version of this lesson. Though I love it, I hardly learned anything. Do I have to buy a DVD or enroll in the school to get the information?

  • Mike De La Mater says:

    I missed the tutorial, just got the intro. Where is the actual video at?

  • Fourth Movement Productions says:

    oh sorry I thought this was manly online. I did know you guys are an actual FX studio doing movies I thought you guys were just doing behind the scenes stuff on youtube I didn't know there were classes you could take. Thanks for the clearing it up.

  • TheCatThatWasMan says:

    Love the video posts, the work you have done, and the passion you all have to deliver the treasure from your vaults of awesomeness, where magic truly dwells. The artists and craftsman there are fx wizards, and I can't wait to see what you have up your sleeves. Merry Christmas to all of you! Thanks for putting in the time and effort to bring the goodies out so all of us can marvel! It's just what We wanted!

  • Stan Winston School says:

    Welcome to the fun, BEN.
    We're glad to have you. We'll keep mixing it up. Please tell your friends! -John

  • Stan Winston School says:

    Whoa. We're touched. Listen, if it weren't so fun to give it, we wouldn't be. So just keep coming back. Tell your friends. Share these things with kids. Let's build the next generation of Monster Fanatics… together. You guys are the best fans in the world. – John

  • Stan Winston School says:

    Alexander~ Well, yes. You have to do one of those things… OR you can purchase the STREAM for and that stream is your to watch as long as you're registered as a free user on our site. That's the key, though. You gotta go to our site to see the full lesson. This is one of our shorter lessons and it's an hour and a half long. From one of the dudes that paints the robots in the big movies that you watch. This is the real $&%#.
    The URL is above in the description. Tell us what ya think. – John

  • Stan Winston School says:


    Jamie admits that in this short lesson, he's jamming through a quick set of lenses as a placeholder. Of COURSE he's planning a set of proper lenses for any display piece. He wanted a complete look for you guys and we gave him 10 minutes! They cost about 50 cents and I think they're pretty darned effective.
    No? -John

  • Stan Winston School says:

    Mike! I thought I responded. The link is embedded in the description video above. The lesson is on our site. It's awesome. -John

  • Habu12 says:

    Using the venerable Alclad II I see. I've been a model builder for over 33 years, and I've used Alclad for the last 12 years. Before that it was Testors Model Master Metalizer. But Alclad is far more robust, and the chrome-like colors are the shiniest I've ever used. Great for bare metal finish aircraft. And Paasche H, can't beat that 80+ year old design!

  • Farhan Azam says:

    you guyx are really awesome… we just sit at home and watch the movie with food aside….but you devote yourself to such huge project.. i even cant imagine it…..

  • Farhan Azam says:

    plz continue uploading new videos….itx been feel good to watch you guyx handling that huge and skillful project…

  • Farhan Azam says:

    i m not getting an option to share it…..whenever it will get!! i share it…….love your work……!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Swidhelm says:

    In the first movie they weren't mesh. We didn't see that until Predator 2.

  • Jamie De gooijer says:

    hey it's me ๐Ÿ˜€ joke… ^^

  • Galacta Tube says:


  • Matt Bradley says:

    Best comment I've read in a while!

  • WogtimusPrime says:

    Any idea where to get a casting/mold of a predator mask? thanks ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Stan Winston School says:

    Try the guys at the Hunter's Lair. – David

  • vilzku39 says:

    I make that in 1/35 and 1/72 scale models

  • Thierry Wybauw says:

    Ok you showed it, but that's about it, no further explanation, pity!

  • twistedmisery666 says:


  • Sean B. says:

    So to get the tutorial. I have to buy the dvd. shame I could really use this right now. but I can not afford the DVD at the moment. tease…

  • Stan Winston School says:

    Sean, you can buy the DVD or stream it alone ($20) as part of a Stan Winston School subscription. If you choose to subscribe, you can do it for as little as $20 a month for a limited number of videos per month. AND there's a 3-day free trial. Really we do try to make this affordable. – David

  • Sean B. says:

    I apologize.that is affordable.just saving money rite now for props to paint.and I may get a dvd in the near future. can you say how long and detailed the dvd is.

  • Stan Winston School says:

    Hey Sean, The DVD is highly detailed and runs roughly one hour and twenty minutes. -Matt

  • Sebastian Galvan says:

    It is realy good

  • calabiyou says:

    that's awesome. i wish he wore safety gloves though and a respirator, for health… health and safety's real people! ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Stan Winston School says:

    calabiyou, You are absolutely right. That's why Jamie conducted the entire lesson in an industrial grade ventilation booth. Safety is of premium importance in Creature FX. -Matt

  • Mudux says:

    do you know what "PREVIEW" means?

  • Thierry Wybauw says:

    I do indeed understand you have to trick in people to become paying members so you could earn a buck… Warming up and then… nadda zilch till you pay. Yeaa i do understand the definition of preview in this case.

  • Mudux says:

    It might be a strange concept to you, but some people do work, and they require money to do so. Weird how the world is, eh?

  • M81 says:

    Want to buy an unpainted mask so bad.Only real 1:1 scale masks from the world of the internet suck.

  • Stan Winston School says:

    Check out the Predator prop builder's forum, The Hunter's Lair:ย ยย @basic101101. You might find what you're looking for. -Matt

  • bowser515 says:

    Nice video, I think I'll buy this one. Can we get hold of those castings from the actual mask anywhere? Also, SWS, is it true that you found a hero P2 bio a while back and they are no longer lost? I would love to have an accurate P2 hero mask one day, Love that design. Many thanks.

  • Thierry Wybauw says:

    @ Reaction towards Mudux, whatever mate, do you know me? Otherwise where do you get that statement and i quote "It might be a strange concept to you, but some people do work, and they require money to do so. Weird how the world is, eh?" guess not so your argument is BS… maybe different countries is the problem here or do you have a department of your school somewhere around in Belgium… think before you make dumbass statements!

  • DukeStarbuckle says:

    Hey Stan, ย Nice try. ย I'm not paying you anything. ย You said that I would get unlimited access after subscribing. ย I think you owe me some videos and an apology for being a dirtbag. ย I hope your money brings you all the happiness you can handle.

  • esiuol360girl19 says:

    Is there anything you can suggest that would give a metal effect on wood, I'm making The Goblin Cleaver from the Hobbit, but I'm not sure what to paint it with, well what paint would give a shiney metal effect, thanks, loved the video it was great ๐Ÿ™‚
