    Jul 30, 2013, 10:23 AM - ESB Boba Fett Holster Paint? #1

    Hi all,

    I'm getting ready to paint the holster I got from Kcr7pr. Is there a specific paint I should get? Does anyone have any suggestions or tricks to make it look good? Thanks!

    I like the satin black idea, I'm just afraid I'm going to mess it up.

    Laquer thinner will remove paint from stuff pretty easy...I would say...use some rusto auto primer, light grey then their 2x cover satin black...see how you like it if you think its to shiny use some flat clear or dullcoat from testors.

    This is how I did mine and except for the parts where I didn't clean up my repairs very well it turned out great.

    Just make sure whatever you use is an enamel paint. I used Rusto Flat Black Protective Enamel. The holster gets banged around a lot so you'll want a hearty paint for it.
