    :::PICS::: haha...how NOT to weather your brand new skygunbro vest

    haha, ok, so i was workin on weathering my vest/suit the other day and i was thinking...wat would be the most badass sexperience that fett could have gone through (and sruvive), so i figured, fire, or a blas mark or something like that....

    soooo, i grab my my lighter (dont smoke though..ion case anyone cared..) and i began to very very slighty *singe* the end of the sleeve, and after a few seconds..the bottom was outlined w/ a realy cooll lookin bronze color- very lsightly though

    then i moved on to the bottom of the vest....went a lil over board- to sum it up, it caught fire anddd not i got a burned semi circle outlined in black by my hip/ belly button.....good times

    so, i hope SOMEONE learns from this and fights the urge to go over board on the weathering!!

    -Andrew

    Ironically - your handle here means you didn't follow your own advice


    Always use an airbrush (or can) to paint on weathering effects, fire is a bit risky to use....

    Dude! That's awesome!!
    As a closet pyro, that would have been pretty funny to see. But back to reality, so glad you were not hurt.

    You could have just roughed it up a little like throwing it in the dirt or something

    Aww...that's not so bad...but I'm assuming you're going for accuracy on your Boba? I could see how that would be a hinderance.
