    AFFO$'s PAINT LIST FOR THE AIRBRUSH CHALLENGED

    I've gotten several requests for a list of the colors I use on the buckets I paint since I use spraypaints instead of an airbrush, so here goes:

    NOTE: Valspar colors can be found at Lowes. I have also included the paint # after the paints that had them listed on the label.

    ESB HELMET COLORS

    SPRAY PAINTS

    Dome and Lower Cheeks- Rustoleum Spruce Green

    Upper Cheeks- Any Flat Black spray paint misted lightly with Rustoleum Spruce Green

    Mandibles, Visor, and Keyslot Area-**NEW COLOR** Rustoleum Satin Cabernet oversprayed with Krylon Ruddy Brown Primer.

    Back of helmet-You can go two routes with this depending on if you prefer the blue/green back or green/blue back
    blue/green back-base coat of Krylon Navy Blue misted over with Krylon Hunter Green Satin
    green/blue back-base coat of Krylon Hunter Green Satin misted over with Krylon Navy Blue

    Killstripes-**NEW COLOR** Tamiya PS-56 Mustard Yellow (I order it off of ebay)

    Light Green Scratches under Killstripes- Apple Barrel Colors 'Wedgewood Green' (20530) This can be found in the craft section of Walmart. It is an acrylic paint and has to REALLY be thinned down before using.

    Left Ear-Rustoleum Spruce Green

    Right Ear-Krylon Ultra Flat Camouflage Khaki

    Tan Scratches on Back of Helmet-Krylon Ultra Flat Camouflage Khaki

    BOTTLE PAINTS USED
    These are the paints I brush onto the helmet

    Grey Scratches on Green Parts of helmet- Pollyscale SP Lark Dark Grey

    Grey Scratches on Red Parts of helmet- Pollyscale SP Lark Dark Grey with two drops of white mixed in to the 1/2 oz bottle. If using the 1 oz bottle mix 4 drops of white.

    Dark Red Scratches- Pollyscale PRR Maroon (per RS List)

    Small Silver Scratches- Testors Model Master Silver

    Paint Splatter Between Dent and Killstripes- Pollyscale Black Green


    ROTJ HELMET COLORS

    SPRAYPAINTS

    Dome and Lower Cheeks- Krylon Italian Olive(3522)
    This color is a Satin so it will require dullcoting.

    Upper Cheeks- Krylon Navy Blue misted with Krylon Flat Black

    Visor, Mandibles, Red Trim- Rustoleum Satin Cabernet

    Helmet Back- ColorPlace (Walmart Brand) Kelly Green

    Keyslots- Krylon Grey Automotive Primer*
    *Krylon makes three different shades of grey automotive primers. The medium grey is just called 'grey' on the label. The dark and light greys are labeled as such.

    Left Ear-Rustoleum Satin Cabernet (For the outer edge of the earpiece) and Rustoleum Aluminum (V7715).

    Right Ear- Rustoleum Aluminum (V7715).

    Killstripes- "New Color" Valspar 'Hacienda Tile' (Available at Lowe's)

    BOTTLE PAINTS USED

    Dark Grey around scratches- Pollyscale SP Lark Dark Grey

    Dark Red around Scratches- Pollyscale PRR Maroon

    Light Green scratches on Lower cheeks- Apple Barrel Colors 'Wedgewood Green' (20530) This can be found in the craft section of Walmart. It is an acrylic paint and has to REALLY be thinned down before using.

    Grime On Ears- Pollyscale Grimy Black


    I am always on the look out for accurate spray alternatives so if you find one you think looks better, please post it here.


    Thanks,

    Paul

    The two helmets are a MS1 and a BKBT Jango I converted to a Boba. The picture is an optical illusion. From the angle I took it at, the BKBT helmet looks alot bigger because of its placement. The MS1 helmet is actually slightly taller, while the BKBT is bigger in diameter giving it a little more flared appearance. The thing I fell in love with about the BKBT helmet was the 'squintiness' of the visor. I know it's not screen accurate, but its a One of a Kind helmet and it's soooo Clint Eastwood. Here's a pic of the two helmets from a better angle, MS helmet on the left, BKBT on the right.

    Cool comparison pics!
    Is the vertical part of the visor skinnier on the BKBT helmet as well? It looks that way. (Don't know too much about Jango helms)

    Yes, I have. I will amend the list at the top to include the ROTJ Colors also. Here's an example of the one I have painted.

    Excellent, thanks much!
    Now off to the shops!

    BTW, would love to also see front and rear shots of the RoTJ helmet.

    Here ya' go.

    By the way, the color on the back of the helmet in the pics is NOT 'Kelly Green'. I found the Kelly Green color after I had painted this helmet and I feel that it (Kelly Green) is a more accurate representation of the color on the back of the film used helmet.


    Thanks,

    Paul

    Between the color list, the painting tips, and the soon to be templates, you've been quite the contributor lately.. I am so completely jealous of the skills that you have.. Everything you've done looks so amazing. Great work as always..

    Re: AFFO$'s PAINT LIST FOR THE AIRBRUSH CHALLENGED

    I have 2 quick noob questions. Before I begin, thank you AFFO$ for posting this list....I'm a teacher, and plan on using my upcoming spring break to begin my first Fett bucket.

    My first question is, with spraypaints can i still use a masking solution and go with a layering technique? I like the idea of picking away the topical paint layer to reveal the chrome "damage" below, and then adding some of the greys on with a brush. My second question, is are these sprays pretty easy to find at places like Loews or Home Depot, or is it best to go to a Michaels or Hobby Lobby for this? I am hoping to do ESB style paint scheme.

    Thanks a lot in advance.

    Musical Fett.... I was able to get a lot of the paints I needed at my local Wal-Mart! So, you should be able to get the pray paints fairly easy. As for the bottle paints like the PRR Maroon, or Lark Dark Gray, I'd suggest you hit up a hobby store like HobbyTown USA, or something simular in your area!

    Hope the info helps!

    Yes you can use spray cans and masking fluid. That's what TK7602 just did on his MS3.

    I just cruised by my Wallyworld at lunch today.

    I did find some of the paints but mine only carried the sortta "primary" colors, for the ColorPlace brands. Nothing like "Kelly Green" just green, and the orange was a gloss which I don't know if that was right or not.

    The Krylons they had but, the "Italian Olive" was only a "satin", didn't know if that was right as the burgundy listed is "satin."

    The only Rustoleum Aluminum was call "Metalic Aluminum" so I didn't know if that was correct either. And they had nothing in the "American Accent" line. So I may head over to Home Depot and a few others.

    I'm sorry I didn't post it above. The 'American Accents' colors can be found at Lowe's. The Italian Olive is a Satin. You have to hit it with a shot of Dullcote to knock the shine down. Same with the orange. Dullcote kills the shine. I will amend this at the top of the list.

    Hey FettFull
    What's your secret misting techinque? When I used to do this with model kits it would wind up as tiny "speckles" of paint, is that correct or is there a better way or attachment used?

    Re: AFFO$'s PAINT LIST FOR THE AIRBRUSH CHALLENGED

    RatFett... that's interesting. My Wal-Mart had the Spruce Green, Hunter Green, Burgandy Satin there... The only real problem I had was trying to find that Antique Blue. I went to Home Depot, OSH, and even K-Mart to look... no luck. I ended up getting something called Midnight Blue. It was the closest thing to Antique Blue I could find.

    I guess I should say that you will have to check your local hardware stores and stuff as well. I just assumed that if mine carried the colors, others should as well.

    sorry.
