Raf said somewhere that you should to a paint test before trying it on the armor. So that's exactly what I did! I used Hobbit's idea of using hair gel for masking fluid and it seemed to work nicely, but I think I need to let everything dry better next time before peeling it all off. One problem... I think I need a different green because neither the one on the left nor right seem to feel right.
Rustoleum Premium Spruce Green is correct. It's at Walmart. I think it's $1 more than the Painter's Touch. The Satin Cabernet you'll need for the helmet and ROTJ gauntlets should be there too.
I used toothpaste for masking fluid. Painted everything alluminum, then used a brush to do tiny bits of yellow. Applied toothpaste, let dry, then sprayed it all green. After that sat for a few hours I ran it under the sink and lightly scrubbed the bumpy parts to get the toothpaste to loosen and fall off.
I used plastic for sale signs for my armor. It is very easy to mold and cut, perfect for a first set of armor.
Hi there. I'm new to this forum too and am hoping to build a fett suit. I keep seeing references to 'rkd armour' but dont really now where to find these products. Am looking for kits rather than pre-built so any suggestions would be great. Thanks
