    MY CA BOOTS

    Just wanted to show these Bad Boys off...Tired of looking at them clean.

    All I need are Toe Spikes....I guess some day I'll get some..

    I tried to copy the Magic of the Myth Boots REF PICS...

    Before anyone asks, I weathered these with a WATERY Acrylic WASH, NO Air Brush.

    After taking these pics I think I might add more wearthing.

    What do you think??

    Looks great. I also used the acrylic wash, and then sponged on some grimy black with my hand in it to similate sweat creases.


    Here they are with Chucks toe spikes.

    Keep in mind, are you trying to get them to match the exhibit weathering or the movie? Because as with any part, they get weathered a heck of a lot more after 25 years.

    [font=Comic Sans MS]I guess you could really say that about the whole suit though....
    I was shooting for a middle ground really.
    I tend to like the look of it though.
