Look around and find a base that could make the model higher, and bind 3D print Groot and the base together with double-sided adhesive.

1. Pour a small amount of pigment thinner in a small vessel as brush washing liquid and diluent in advance;

2. Firstly, we try to use cooked brown, black and emerald green to adjust the basic color for Groot body;

3. You can refer to the ratio in the picture for the adjusting proportion of coat. If the actual adjusted coat is dark, you can add some white pigment;
4. You can put two or three drops of thinner when adjusting pigments, which contributes to integration of pigments, but don’t put too much. 5. Evenly mix the pigments directly with the brush;

Step 5: Painting Basic Coat

1. Mix pigments again. Pigments used for appearance coat are lighter than base coat so as to show the contrast of Groot details through the depth and lightness of color;

2. If there are much base coat left, you can directly add white pigment as the new appearance coat;

3. Dip the brush in the coat and paint Groot. Note that try not to paint the concave part;

Step 6: Painting Details Like Mosses on Groot
