    We're freaks!

    We buy expensive stuff and then purposely make it look dirty and beat to heck!

    Looking bad (or should I say good!)

    True that, but yet you ever notice when painting a fett helmet, it just doesn't quite look real untill you beat the heck out of it.

    It looks good...so far. IMO, the gloves need more, and possibly more on the jumpsuit.

    Thanks everyone!

    Kind of a bad picture, I'll have to take another.
    I took my Italian Olive that I'm using for my bucket and misted everything focusing on the parts that would be touched most like the pouch flaps. Then I misted with Antique copper my wife had laying around to give a little rust\dirt look. After that I misted everything with flat black.

    Looks good. I am experimenting with natural weathering...I wear my CAboots to school everyday and I would wear my REALGLOVES when it was cold. IT looks really good buddy. Is that a SGB suit and pouches?

    Hey! I have the same setup! Lookin' good! Remember Boba needs more weathering than you think. If it doesn't look filthy in a picture, then you didn't add enough!

    I'm with Gary on this one.

    in the pics it needs to look really dirty, then it's good.

    Don't forget when you're weathering that the coveralles may look dirty on them zelves, but when the you wear everything the contrast of the dark green armor and brown belts will still make the suit look white.

    I misted mine with brown, black and a grey to dimm the different colours together. The grey can was slightly different in colour the the suit itself causing a nice spotted coloured effect.
