Today we make the 3 most important Star Wars robots. It is not really difficult but the precise painting is a patience job. We searched on Google for star wars droids cute and found many examples of cute robots there. Remember to let the paint dry well in between painting, otherwise you will mess up your work!
How to make the Star Wars robots
Saw off the head for R2D2.
Sand the top smooth.
BB8: glue the beads together.
Press tight for 10 seconds.
While the glue on BB8 hardens a little longer we start painting C3PO and R2D2's top.
Paint C3PO completely gold.
Paint BB8 completely white.
Tape R2 then paint the top silver.
Tape the top of R2 then paint the underside white.
The white paint needs three layers to cover completely.
Paint the details when the paint is completely dry.
The details of R2D2 blue & silver, for BB8 grey silver and orange.
For the details on C3PO you use only black and white.
Allow the paint to dry well then varnish the dolls!
In the third set it will be Han Solo, Chewbacca and Obi Wan Kenobi's turn. The Dark Side we'll save for last!
