Rattle Can Fett Attempt

    Re: Rattle Can Fett Attempt

    Anyone have an idea on what to pick up for the shoulder/knee orange colors? I'm not finding a whole lot of information on those.

    Thanks,

    The weathering really brings it all together mate, you did a great job for you first go. If you want to put in some browns and other colours, instead of using paint get your self some pastels/chalk and rub it in with your finger. Once you put the clear coat on it looks really good, thats what I did on my armor.

    Why dont you pick yourself up a cheap airbrush? They sound complicated and when I started my fett I didnt want or think I could use one, so much so I spent nearly a 100 on rattle cans that are now unopened in my workshop. But I gave one a go and they are brilliant, you have so much choice in paint and you can get the exact color matches for Fett. They are also a lot more controllable so you can get perfect shading and weathering. From how good your armor came out I think you would benefit and surprise your self how good you can get things to look with an airbrush. Then there will be no need to commission people to paint stuff which you can do yourself.

    Thanks for the compliments and suggestions. I agree that it is probably time for me to pick up an airbrush, I am definitely a bit intimidated by them though and that is what has made me hold off on the purchase. Perhaps I will get one for my ROTJ Fett paint up

    Quick update all. Here are the shoulders and the re-done collar. Per RafalFett's suggestion, I went back and removed as much of the yellow as I could. I need to fill the dent on my Fettpride back armor and then that and the butt armor will probably be next. A bit nervous about the knees Enjoy, and comments are always welcome.

    I like the shoulder pads man! They look really good. I never noticed before but the right shoulder pad is really more orange than the left one?

    I haven't really studied the ESB version too much (I'm working on the ROTJ version) but good eye for that detail! Keep it up!

    What colors did you end up using for the shoulders, mate?

    Line marker yellow for the left bell, weathered it with grey primer and flat black. Right shoulder bell was done with line marker yellow followed by Testors go mango. That then was followed up with some flat black and scratches with a steak knife for weathering.

    Good job on your armor so far! But on the collar you should add some dark gray around the bright silver color.
