    Thought I'd post some pics of my shoulder armor to see what you all think.
    LMK if it needs more weathering
    Thanks,

    The color and weathering turned out really nice. What base color(s) did you use for the yellow/orange?

    I used Rogue Studio's (Lee's) found colors.
    Reefer yellow for the base yellow 3 coats, misted over that with the up armor yellow(heavyer in some spot to give them lighter and darker spots, and Cat whisker yellow around the silver.
    I used Grimy black for some weathering, white, yellow,black, and a mist of semi-flat black and just a slight mist of Burnt Umber spray Toner/stain(not much at all , in the MOM pics there are DRK Reddish spots) Then I used a Satin clear over it all.
    Colors work Great! Thanks again LEE!

    Nice bells! Those colors are so sweet, it beat's any other color out there.

    Have you painted the gauntlets with the Wisconson maroon yet? I'm assuming your going ROTJ, the maroon is spot on!! Red gauntlets, or any other color for that matter, just dosn't cut it anymore now these paints have surfaced.

    My jaw just fell to the floor looking at that accurate and nicely painted armor. I love it, and keep the good work.
