    ok, been awhile since i posted any progress on my armor, so i thought i would share what has been going on! i have been studying Mojo's FP paintup thread, and his right shoulder paint job is phenomenall!! i really cant replicate that damage he has done, since i dont have an airbrush, so i tried to use the rattlecan to get that effect, and that didnt work very well, so, i was putting in an extra dent up near the main dent using a lighter to heat up the fiberglass, and then press where i wanted the indention to go...now, i have BM armor, and this shoulder didnt come with the large dent in it, mainly cause i think that it was made ROTJ, but that is ok! i took a dremmel and carved out a dent on my own, i think it is ok... anyway, i noticed i could scortch the paint using the lighter, and tried around the edges of some of the dents, and wow, it worked really nicely i think... so here are some pics of my version of the famed ESB right shoulder dent, and others, so let me know what you guys think... i still have some detailing to do, but i wanted to wait on your opinions before i continued on...

    I think it looks great, but if you want more fading around the burnt edges, and if you dont have an airbrush, you can grind down some charcoal powder, and just either use your fingers or a brush and add the powder on to the edges until you get a desired fade. After that, seal it up with dullcoat, and you are good to go. But the color, dent, etc, all look great!

    thanks fellas! i appreciate the feeback and suggestions...i have to detail it a little more around the edges to get a more blending effect, just have to go to the hobby store to get the right color....i have the zinc chromate, but it is just too yellow for this, so i need a more orangish color to do the blending...thanks again! we are getting there! :o

    Great job! It looks awesome. maybe a little more of the charcoal flashes? Can we see a pic of the entire shoulder piece, so we can soak it all in? I love using my dremmel tools...

    I like the technique you used for the blast marks. Do you plan to add any weathering to the inside metallic portions?

    Sweet! Looking great. You did a really good job on the charcoal flashes. How did you apply it? Do you think airbrushing would be easier, or did you method work well? Does it rub off easily? or do you have to go over it with a clear coat or something?

    Jan 2, 2009, 4:16 PM - Re: BRAND NEW BOBAMAKER ARMOR #149

    thanks, D!! i just used a paintbrush, medium sized, and rubbed it in, and it stays pretty well...ya, if i use a wet towel or something it will come off, but a clear sealer will lock it in nicely!! never used an airbrush, so i would say this charcoal method is easier.... i dont know, i would use the airbrush if you have one, i would...

    plus, i have to save my money for MOJO's new sidearm, and cant afford an airbrush at the moment... besides, if i got an airbrush, i would HAVE to start all over again, and that means certain pain from someone i live with and has to deal with me...
