Hmmm, I'v got problems with my Revell dull coat: It really kills the shiny quality and brightness of my silver paint areas. Any suggestions? Maybe no sealing at all?
This question has bugged me for some time as well. Everybody here seems to use and or live by some type of dull coat. However it makes the silver areas look dull gray on mine, yet bright and shiny on the paintjobs I see here. On my jet pack I ended up handpainting the silver areas back on, after the dull coat. I'm interested to see more responses to this question.
Awesome job on the Battle damage effects i love the way u did that great job!
On all the helmets I have done I dull coat them, it does take a lot of the shine out of the silver. I go back and add a bit of shiny silver back into it, but not all over just little bits here and there to make it look like the main scratches are older and then it has newer ones here and there.
Man that looks awesome so far.
With regards to the silver and the dull coating it, I've found it depends on the type of silver used. I rattle can my helmets, and almost all of the "silver" paints end up turning grey if you clear coat them. However, there are certain ones that will not lose their luster. Personally I used a Rustoleum Metallic Paint (which I believe uses actual aluminium powder). Anything else and I end up having to repaint the silver.
Or at least thats the way I've seen it. Hope I helped a bit.
I'd go with predatormv on this one. I did an extra soft misting layer on my bucket after I had painted most of the silver scratches on. This dulled out most of the silver scratches, but then I just repainted alot of them and you get a nice mixture of scratches that are not all the same colors.
Wau man good work man!!!!!!!!!!!!1
Cracking job mate, going to be a lovely helmet when completed
Looks Great!! can't wait to see the completed bucket!
This looks great! Really nice bucket, that is.
Not to de-rail, but I have a question regarding the dull-coat too.... do you dull-coat before or after you do the "black wash" for weathering?
this is coming along great! you have quite the hand at painting!
beautiful work, coming along nicely
You have an eye for detal!
I don't though
That's why I'm making Daz paint mine
Whoa, great detail work. Any new pictures?
Looks very nice
Wow - that is one fine helmet!
I am going for a BM helmet myself for my upcoming ROTJ.. Dont know if I have the stills to paint it myself.. So far only experience is from TK/TD/TB..
