On Saturday, June 22 I took a trek out to the brand new Monster Kolor shop in Middleboro, Mass for one heck of a good time.  I attended the ‘Paint your own TriPus’ event, hosted by Monster Kolor with blank TriPus figures supplied by Max Toy Co.  The attendees ranged in skill from the talented and always fun Todd Robertson and Will Long to people who had never used an airbrush before.  The weather was perfect for a bunch of toy heads to hang out in a back alley and shoot paint.  Benny Kline of Tenacious Toys was nice enough to photograph the whole even and post a huge gallery of photos from the day.

I spent the drive to Massachusetts planning the paint job for my TriPus.  I wanted to something with deep blue tones and a fade on the bottom to give the appearance of a monster emerging from the ocean, all realistically colored and detailed up top.  Walker had a few special paints and surprises out for people to try, so I was able to stick to my plan while trying out a few sharp new colors.  Click through for nice big, tasty photos of some shiny green TriPus action!  The whole figure was painted on Saturday with whatever tools and colors were on hand, and served as a great warm up refresher piece while I work on unpacking my studio into my new apartment.
