    How long do you wait until you wipe the Miracle Whip off?

    That is amazing! Condiments as a masking agent!

    I've started working around the dent area and have decided on a different approach to avoid alot of the 'clean-up' and help in speeding up the masking process. What I am doing is painting the green on by hand up next to the grey and silver scratches. Also, I am making little tendrils and stray marks as I get farther a way from the scratches, so that when I spray the rest of the green, I don't get a hard outline where I hand painted. Hand painting around the signature scratches will keep me from having to go back and fill in the little silver spots that always manage to sneak through the masking process. And now I won't have to be AS accurate with the masking process. Just as long as I cover the grey and silver of the scratches completely, I don't have to follow every little twist and turn with the masking agent, and they still come out looking accurate.

    I've applied the green to the dome and removed the masking agent from all the signature scratches. I had to do quite a bit of sanding to blend the edges of the hand painted green and the sprayed green, but I finally got them smoothed together. The results turned out pretty good. I then hit it with a coat of satin clear to seal it. I still have to apply some of the fine scratches, but I'm going to let it all dry overnight before I start adding those. Tomorrow starts the upper cheeks and visor area. I'll work on the ears tonight and hopefully have some pics of them tomorrow...

    I like to watch ESB while I paint...The IG-88 action figure has a nice profile pic of Fett's helmet (without the 'crack' in the temple) on the back. Good reference material for a Screen Version ESB helmet.

    I got the upper cheeks painted today. I know it looks really clean right now but the weathering with the mists and pastels will come in the final step. Right now I'm just trying to get all of the major scratches and dings completed. Tomorrow I will start on the mandibles.

    ok... layered all the way... so I was lookin' for an all out silver coat, make en mask scratches... give it a dark grey layer, mask scratches around the allready masked silver scratches... then the top colour... scratch off the masked dark grey and silver areas and tada

    so this is over my head I gues...

    well whatever you do it looks fantastic!!

    wish I had acces to air brush etc... I HAVE to do topical... or nothing at all

    keep going, this looks amazing!!

    Another thread to add to my painting Bible.
    Truly awesome work! I can't wait to see this bucket when it's done.
    After reading this earlier this weekend, I had to sand down the rear of mine and do it all over...........this technique is simply superfantabulous.

    Look forward to the updates,
    Josh
