    I feel exactly the same way. Looking at the MOM/AOSW photos, the yellow definitely looks like it was applied topically. Though Gator's example of the reveal method looks really sharp! I have some decisions to make when paiting my new armour

    I feel as though the silver was used as base, masked then painted the color green. Peel away the mask, scratch the edges of the paint to get the sharpe edged scratches...then I topically added the yellow. The only reason why I went topically with the yellow was because the edges were mostly rounded out and I saw no reason to use the scratch method to get the sharper edged scratches (that and I am cheap as hell when it comes to paint

    Basically use your silver as the base coat. Then mask only the silver areas that are exposed. Paint the green directly on top of the mask and silver areas. Dry, then peal the mask off revealing the silver. Then take your yellow and dab around the edges. Black wash a few times then spatter with black paint.

    OK OK, I got it. What I did in the past was just layer it all. silver then yellow then green. And that worked just fine but I want to try other things to see how they all work. So what is everyone useing for masking? Im going with the rubber cement idea, worked good so far but want to try other things.

    I follow the same steps that bobagoat listed, but I applied 2 coats of yellow and 3 coats of green. I put the coats on very light, with an airbrush, to avoid drips and streaks.

    Quote bobagoat said:
    What I do is paint the whole thing in coats. Shoot one coat of yellow. Let dry. Remove mask. Let sit for 24 hrs. Mask again. Shoot one coat of green. Let dry. Remove mask. Let sit 30 mins. Weather the hell out of it with a wash and some ground artist charcoals. The reason I only wait 30 mins is because I sometimes want so scrape additional damage points. This works best when the paint is not fully cured.
    I know this method is not screen accurate, but I wanted my armor to seem more "real" in person. That is why I chose to use aluminum plate for my armor pieces and paint them with the reveal method.

    Jango_Fett_Jr, Got Maul - Thanks for the complements.

    So my U.S. med green was shipped off today, very slow since I put ina order on the 28 of march. But I did order the Wisconson Central Maroon for the guants that came in today. So I painted my guants right up and they look really great after fixing a air brush problem (thanks Cal) But they are gloss very gloss. So will the black wash tone it down a little?

    ok so I painted them going to let dry for about 48 hours, just put them in the sun about 2 hours ago and a bird left a nice big loaf on them. Thank God they were dry!!!! So next step is put together and then add the silver and the black wash with 1 part flat black and 5 parts washer fluid. Am I going in the right direction, some time I have to have thing spelled out to me. I know im a pain


    AND LOTS OF BLOTING!!!!!!!

    no pain at all ! Better to do it right the first time. Yes, you are on the right track BUT I would actually warn against using Windex. When you blackwash and blot, you kinda want as much time to work with your piece as possible before your paint dries. When you use Windex your paint will dry faster (because of the alcohol content) than if you used water. I personally use water.

    I used water and acylic black paint to blackwash my stuff so far. Then when you dull coat it, it wont wash off. I actually just dunked the entire piece in the water, and the black stuck in the cracks. when it diied I washed it off where I didnt want it before the final coat.
