Ok, got my MS2 today(THANKS Marrowsun!) and began the long process of layer painting it to ROTJ specs. I decided 2 things before beginning. I am going to leave the helmet visor in until I finish painting to make this easier to handle and I am using mustard to mask the layers. In the pictures below you'll see the stages I started with for the metallic base and 1st layer grey. Also, you'll notice I am only doing 1 section at a time for the layers. This is so I can keep my damage as accurate as possible to the Magic/myth pics. I have found the best way to use mustard is to apply and then spray the next coat of paint ASAP. I then wait until this layer is still tacky to the touch and use a very wet paper towel to dab(not wipe) the mustard away. Then very lightly dab with dry paper towel to remove water, be very carefull of this stage. If you press to hard you could leave unwanted impressions in your finish. Then allow this to dry completely before the next layer of mustard & paint. You'll see in my picture there is still a bit of mustard, not to worry. These small spots can be gently scrapped away with your fingernail once the paint is completely dry..Also, I'm not saying this is the only way to do this...this is just how I have found it works best for me and thought it would be helpful to beginnners.
