    Painting Techniques

    I just received my armor and I am wondering whats the best way to paint it. Should I airbrush the armor and layer the chrome, yellow zinc cromate, and green with mustard/liquid mask on it or should I paint it all green and brush on the chrome and yellowafterwards? Should I use an airbrush or spraypaint or what?
    I would really appreciate your guys help.

    AIR BRUSH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    But if you use the colors RS says like yellow zinc cromate you have to use air brush. But it looks so much better that away. I used spray paint and i hated the look so I went with RS color and im way happy now but id layer mine if I was you. I would stay away from the chrome makes it look to shinney. This is just me, still new at this but I have a great looking Boba.
