    You might want to hit the upper cheeks with some more black misting to kinda tone down the blue. Lookin' good so far.
    If he does that now, won't it be too dark after the final misting?

    I'm painting a helmet right now, and the blue looks just like that (maybe even a tad lighter), thats why I ask. I know that I tend to really blast my helmets during the final misting. This is gonna be my first blue cheek ROTJ though (just used plain old flat black last time), so I could use as many tips from the master as possible.


    Thanks in advance...

    Keep in mind this is my first Boba helmet (when I joined this site it was to make Jango), and thus the first time I ever had to make a "dirty paint job". I went ahead and misted some black on the cheeks, than to make it dirty I used charchol from michlals, smeered it on, misted black paint, and then Dull coat (Krylon Matte finish) Here are the results, but I will say it looks better in person.

    Before aging:



    After aging

    I don't think it will be too dark when you do the final misting if you go ahead and tone it down now. Plus if you look at the pic's of the ROTJ helmet on the Reference Disk, the upper cheeks have just a hint of blue showing through the black grime and weathering. From a distance they almost look black.

    Too late... I finished my base colors already, and I'm a lazy painter. :P

    I'll fix it later.

    ESB HELMET COLORS

    Can I use ANY silver colored paint?
    Silver base coat-Rustoleum Aluminum (V7715)

    Anyone use another yellow for this? i can't locate any.. AND how does the grey primer turn the yellow red?
    Killstripes-Duplicolor School Bus Yellow(DA1663) *Mist the front six killstripes with Krylon Light Gray primer while you still have the killstripes masked off. This will give the back eight kill stripes a redder tint like on the film used helmet.

    The can i bought is Khaki ..but to me it look like a light tan...is that right? does the silver undercoat make it the right color?
    Right Ear-Krylon Ultra Flat Camouflage Khaki
    Last one...Is this for the areas in the back that are a light yellow.
    Tan Scratches on Back of Helmet-Krylon Ultra Flat Camouflage Khaki

    i have the info but i'm second guessiing myself...
    i just started buying cans. i want to get my helmet done for my wedding..


    thx in advance!!

    Yes you can use any silver.

    As for the Schoolbus Yellow, have you tried looking at an autoparts store like Advance Autoparts. That's where I found mine.
    The light grey spray paint on the front kill stripes lightens them up so that the back stripes appear to have a redder tone.

    The camouflage khaki is for the 'light yellow' scratches on the back. Depending on the pics you look at sometimes the scratches look yellow and sometimes they look tan, the same color as the Rangefinder Ear.

    Not to hijack this thread but..............this weekend at Celebration 4 I was able to see two buckets of AFFO$ work, and all I can say is it's OUTSTANDING! The colors and his detail skills are amazing. I was able to see the real ESB helmet at the event and AFFO$ work really compares to the original very well. Nice work.

    Yes. They're the same color. The Satin version just refers to the finish type (satin). I believe the "regular" version is gloss, so you'll have to hit it with Dulcoat or some matte acrylic sealer from the craft department at Walmart to knock down the shine. Good luck!
