    You darn kids and your paint-by-number Boba Fett costumes! Back in my day we had to walk uphill to school both ways and freehand paint our Boba Fett armor!


    (Excellent tutorial, Ponte).

    ....but it only works with ROTJ styled costumes (MOM/AOSW) because no high res versions of ESB exist enough to do it as perfectly as Ponte did.

    I had to freehand my MOM version, but still spent hours and hours sitting in front of the computer with the high res photos from MOM, trying to match all the exact details I could as I painted. I did mine differently than Ponte, though. I did mine the way they did the MOM suit, which was mask off silver straight to green, and than hand paint the yellow around the silver spots.
