Just wanted to start a helpful thread for those of us that have CA BOOTS, or any boots, that need that extra “Movie” or “MOM” Look to them.
I’ve noticed that those of us that do have these boots either don’t weather them, or simply don’t weather them enough.
This Tutorial will require some painting skills, and the mixing of paints.
So here are the type of paints and supplies you will need to complete this:
I use an Acrylic water based paint. Namely DELTA CERAMCOAT.
Why? They’re CHEAP!! .99cents each to be exact.
We already spend way too much money for this hobby It’s good to cut some corners every once and while...
You can find them at ANY crafts store AND WALMART!!. And being that we will be painting on material the acrylic is forgiving in that it bends, and still allows the material to breathe.
Here’s the list of the EXACT colors you will need.
You will also need some sturdy/Cheap Sable paint brushes… and a good Blow/Hair–Dryer. I use my wife's..shhhhhhh .
- Burnt Umber
UPDATED 10/18/2010: I am now using an airbrush to weather.. and detailing with brushes...
And some Sand-Paper...150grit or higher.
I want to thank DARTHMILLER for being my "test subject" with his boots…
This first pic is obviously the way the CA BOOTS come ….wrong color and in need of some tender "Love"/ Weathering.
