    Hey guys, just got done painting some trash can armor . I found the hunt club green at a little country knockoff of Lowes near my house, couldn't find the right yellow though and what I got is too bright for my taste. To me though, the hunt club green is too dark (by the way I haven't added the dull coat yet so maybe that will tone it down).

    But still, this is my first try at making and painting armor so I'm happy with the outcome.

    oh, and I tried heating this part up to make the dent, but heated it a little too much...


    But thank you very much stormtrooperguy for these tips!!

    Very, very nice work. How do you make the scratched effect?

    Well, what I did before painting, was just to grab a lighter and heat up the area to be bent, just enough to heat slowly the area about 6" away below the area, not too long since you will burn the area....and the whole piece if not carefull. Slow is better. Before getting "brownish", take away the lighter, and use a small screwdriver handle (or anything round for this matter) to make the dent, just big enough to make the proper sized dent.

    Hope that helps.

    Okay guys, I know this isn't even close to movie accurate, but that was a conscious decision (for the most part, a few uh-ohs ). I used the colors and methods described by Stormtrooper Guy (Thanks :thumbup) and blended with Apollo's Mandolorian tutorial . I was going for the ultra-grime and battle scared look. Used sintra. What do you think? Too many liberties taken?

    (troubles with internet...will post pics when speed returns)

    I've been able to find all of the colors at my local home depot, even the hunt club green. They were even on sale! 2.97 a can.

    This is AMAZING, someone needs to make a "color chart" like when you were kids... like with a coloring page. (ha ha) Has someone made a rattle can list for the jet pack?

    I can't wait to get started on this project. With great information like this most of the guess work is taken out. Now I just have to find myself some armor so I can get cracking.

    Re: stormtrooperguy's rotj armor rattlecan colors

    Hey Astro Builder! Looking good so far, but I think you could even stretch it more! I see big scarring (which is great!) but I don't see any micro scratches. taking a needle or something to scratch on some silver scratches or show skid marks or something would greatly emphasize grit and damage (in a more realistic sense).

    Also, I see scorching around the edges but looks too even. I want to see variation (some patches would get more exposure in some spots of the armor than others)!

    Anyway that's my two cents. Either way you did a great job!
