  1. Mar 23, 2006, 9:46 AM - :::PICS::: haha...how NOT to weather your brand new skygunbro vest #1

    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!!

    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.

    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.
