    Dec 18, 2004, 11:22 AM - Need help with all of ROTJ Armor Paint color? #1

    Ok I'm about to hit the paint here soon and I'm wondering the armor for ROTJ is what color. Ive seen this http://tdh.prop-planet.com/viewtopic...c=6556&forum=2
    but thats all air brush stuff and I don't have that skill going for me. So I'm looking for it in a can, that I know how to use.
    I know I need some sort of green and 2 kinds of yellow or orange but what type and from who?


    Now I'm good with the JP color. I found a pic on here with all that stuff on there. Has a cat's tail in it at the bottom and I forget who I got it from. I'm just hurting on the shoulders, knees and the other armor parts. Any help would be great.


    And pic's would be really nice also

    Hmmm Well one important type of paint you will need is catapillar yellow for the knee's shoulders and second layer for the rest of the armor, imo its very close.

    I used yellow almond for the cream colored layers on the knee's and shoulders. Aluminum, not chrome for the metal showing.

    and maybe its to dark of a green but I used hunter green for the armor and sanded it lighter before I took the liquid mask off and I liked the results.

    All this paint is duplicolor acylic enamel found at advanced auto parts.

    I use Rustoleum Spruce Green for chest armor, backplate, and codpiece. I like it because it's a little darker than the Moss Garden color that I use on the helmet.

    Only the knee's and the shoulders have the cream colored layer the rest of the body armor has the yellow layer. The left gauntlet also has a second yellow layer that appeares to be only on that one piece that the hoses attach to, I dont know if its yellows resin that the paint chiped off or what.
