    Apr 25, 2006, 10:25 PM - Ripcode cape finished using Bracks Buddies tutorial #1

    Here is my weathered cape I got from Ripcode. I am VERY pleased with it... I used a less is more method with the airbrush... you have to realy look to see where it was painted but I think that is the sign of good weathering. It feels old and authentic to me now...and I am my worst critic so I am happy. I found the example for where to weather and how to do it on the Bracks Buddies tutorial on this site very informative. Enjoy

    I just bought a 1m long piece of indoor canvas and took it outside, and then I beat mine with a rock! $3 cape right there!

    This cape was from RIPCODE, not Rimshot... in my cold med induced craze I typed the wrong name in the title and body of this thread... sorry about that.

    ADMINS: Pleace change Rimshot to Ripcode in the tytle when you can.
    Thanks

    Your cape turned out great! The weathering is really nice and of course will naturally weather more over time.

    Thanks man, you adding that extra inch and a half worked great... It hangs just an inch or two above where my knee armor would sit!

    My cape cost me $5 - bought an old army half shelter at a military supply store... it was already all messed up... holes and tears.
    Worked great!
