    There really is no right or wrong answer in terms of the exact ratio....the more water the lighter the pigment. It's that simple.

    Keep in mind these boots are almost like canvas material...if you've ever painted with water and acrylics on canvas then you know that water is your friend. If it's too light make it darker...to dark, make it lighter...and add water for less pigment... works the same.

    And the weathering is just that, very random, no paint by numbers here.. ..REF PICS REF PICS!!

    I hope that helped???
    Thanks Spidey... My original idea was to work with them on in the garden (nice and dusty/dirty) but this would work better and less chance of me ruining them...

    I really don't think the boots are substantially darker in ESB. In fact the weathering seems to match the ones at AOSW precisely. I think the percieved 'darkness' is from the lighting of the photos, and perhaps slight fading if they were used in the desert scenes in ROTJ like the jumpsuit and gloves...though I don't know if they actually were used in those scenes.

    saturday I'm going to meet Jeremy Bulloch so I'm touching up my costume.

    A new scratch build blaster is out of the question but I'm making a but plate as we speak and... yes... toe spikes...

    I was thinking of drilling in holes into those boots and plunge shooting leds into them... a metal strip over them and screw that into place... voila...

    think the soles would support some sort of glue or anything?

    This is a bit of-topic... sorry Spidey...

    just figured you disected the boot by now judging by your tutorial...

    Pft, this tutorial is a waste of time if you go to high school, just wear them around campus for a few days. ;-)

    Thanks for the tips Spidey!

    I AGREE!!! I wear mine to school almost every day, and they are being worn out physically, as well as verbally.

    Here are my boots after following this tutorial:




    For the spikes, I sprayed on black paint, then used a rag soaked in thinner to "wear" off the paint.

    they look great

    maybe a little to light still, when weathering doesn't show up in pics well, you can do tons more.

    Here are a couple of shots of my newly weathered boots. Just did them tonight. This tutorial worked out really well. Comments....they seem to be missing something though. I can't put my finger on it but it is rather pointed.... You know once these things are weathered no one other than us can really tell the difference.

    Just to make sure I understand this and sorry if I am being repetative but does "wash" mean to mix the paint with water?

    Thanks,
