    looking good so far. hopefully a wash of black misty paint will tone it down some. looks like Fett dropped a mustardy hotdog on himself lol. I would imagine it would tone down with the black mist quite a bit. Not sure if Matte alone would change the overall color, just the glossiness.

    Great updates D... I think you have done an awesome job bro!
    I personally don't use washes? I never tried the whole window cleaner and paint mix thing...
    What I did but obviously I used an airbrush, was to mix/thin some grimy black heavily then mist all over the armour from about 12" away and it really toned down the yellow.

    any time i've ever used a wash, it was just mixed with water. never heard of using window cleaner. I rattlecan'd my whole set, i just stood really far back and lightly sprayed black all over it. misted it. then wiped with a lightly damp cloth in some places and a dry one in others.

    Darell, where did you get your fine grade steel wool? I have been looking for it for a long long time now and I cannot seem to find it anywhere except online.

    that does look amazing, keep up the good work!!

    I agree with the others, if you wanna tone down the yellow a mist layer will work perfectly... I' ve never used an air brush though... simple spray paint cans work just as well for me... that is probably untill I get my hands on an air brush... :P

    The armor looks good. I can't say it is worth the money...because I have always been cheap. The paint looks really good, I need to learn how to do the battle damage, I've never been good at it. What do you use to do the silver?
