    Dullcoat

    After much work, I am almost finished painting my posterboard with the paints from AFFO$'s paint list, but I noticed that it seems to be much too shiny. I bought some matte finish but when I tested it on a painted piece of scrap, it seems to make it more shiny than it already is. Is there a specific brand or type of paint that anyone knows that I could look for? Heres a picture so you can see how see its excessive shiny-ness.

    Testors Dullcote. It comes in little spray cans. I use it on all sorts of armor parts.

    Get Testor's Dullcote. It won't leave any shine whatsoever. I've found that the matte finish spray by krylon and rustoleum tend to leave a little shine even though they are supposed to eliminate it. You can find the Testors Dullcote at most Hobby Stores in their spray paint section.


    DOH! You beat me to it. Yeah, what he said...

    It's not really backwards, the webcam that came built-in to my laptop reverses everything. Scared me for a second, though.

    All webcams do that. It's just to create a mirror efect with you, so you can coordinate better when moving yourself and watching you in the webcam

    I knew that was comin'! It'd be funny if somebody actually did an entire costume like that.

    There is at least one Holiday Special Fett out there, that would be a good one to see too.
