    Jul 11, 2011, 11:47 AM - ESB Armor Paint Up for Vegan Mando #1

    First i want to say thank you to Bryan (Vegan Mando) for letting me be a big part of his ESB costume that he will be wearing to SDCC this year as i can't wait to see what the finished product looks like all put together!!!

    So for his armor did all the normal stuff trim, sand, primer, silver coat, and then masked out the silver damage. After that for the chest, cod back, and kidney armor I laid down a base green color as i did not want to waist what little I had of my US Med green and wanted to make every bit of it count. For the shoulders and knees I hit them with a good coat of up armor yellow. What amazes me every time when doing a paint up is how the colors change with application of each additional color and a little buffing to blend them. So after laying down the base colors I began to build on that and at my current stag I still need to add the yellow scratches to the armor and add the decals on. My goal is to have this shipped to Vegan by Thursday of this week.

    I also want to thank FettSeven again for lending me his airbrush this past week since mine took a major dump, it's nice to have local members that live so close that can help out in a pinch.

    Any way on to the pics!!!

    Thanks for the compliments guys I just hope I did this FP armor some justice. Well last night i got some more work done by adding all the Yellow section to the armor as well as placing the decals. I have to do a few things to the left shoulder and then with a thumbs up from Vegan it will be time to seal it all up.

    Very good job, looks great! Shoulders and knees you used yellow as a base and then what? You were going to brown or grounded.
    I have to paint mine and I'm still exploring ways.

    Oh I love the darker shoulder and knee parts! Great! It looks pretty cool together with the green.

    Awesome!

    Yeah I was not sure how it was going to turn out at first but once I hit it with the steel wool it began to blend nicely.
