– workflow – molten stone xbox360 faceplate

July 15, 2006

my workflow thread for them, who interested in the process of such a molten stone 360 faceplate. i think it’s ok to keep my expirience for me alone, but it’s much more exiting to share it with you and get feedbacks from you :)

first, take a clear xbox360 faceplate (not easy to get “virgin”one), make some scetches to get a idea. now heat the industry-plasticine to make it shapeable…

apply the plasticine on the faceplate (i fixed it with pan head screws) and shape the industry-plasticine with a scraper…

now, spray white nitro primer (ground-coat) on it…

then i have apply a black ground-coat on my faceplate to have a better feeling about the shading…

at least, finished with acrylic paint. conserv and protect the faceplate with a matt enamel varnish.

there are some pics from my finished lava dungeon faceplate with the case and on my own xbox360 :)

…i think about to make a second version of this style for the whole 360. so maybe you have some inputs or questions about my workflow…i’m glad for every criticism and hint to make my ideas better.

    Please email me regarding the different kinds of faceplates you may be able to do. I recently became interested in custom faceplates and i need a faceplate that has never been done or seen. Anyway email me if possible.

    Great work, I really like the look. It makes you wonder why companies don’t make textured face plates like this, considering they could do something similar with injection molding (without the same detail and craftsmanship ofcourse). A few things though, maybe its just the picture lighting but the white used on the face plate seems lighter then the 360 system color. Also I was wondering if you can see the 4 controller lights around the power button they seem to be covered in your mod. It would be a great touch if where the lights shine thru the molten lava was semi transparent then it would seem to glow, perhaps if you used similar colored LEDs.

    My idea for a faceplate is slate grey stones similar to the texture and break size you have done but with a light blue to white fade oozing from in between. But with one major addition, spots where the rock is chipped away reveals circutry.
