I'm still brand new to the world of Boba Fett costumes, and thought I'd take some old trashcans from my basement to make some trashcan armor, just to see if I'm capable of doing it. I started with just the chest/ab pieces, and I have the shapes more or less how I want them.
My question is, what sort of prep work needs to be done to the armor before I start painting? Can I just put down a base coat of primer? Should I coat it with a layer of Bondo and then sand/prime it? I'd like to be able to have something that doesn't scream "homemade".
If it makes any difference, I'm planning to use an airbrush for the paint job. I've searched through the forums, but haven't found any definitive answers. Thanks in advance for any help that can be provided!
