    Wonderful weathering job! When you use the masking fluid, do you keep it on for each coat of a different color, adding masking fluid as you go? Or do you remove masking fluid after each coat? If so, how do you keep the previously masked areas of a different color from being painted over?

    I take off the masking after every layer and re-mask when I paint the next color.

    I worked more on the bucket last night adding the weathering of black washes, some additional scratches and touch up paint here and there and finally added the famous white thumb print on the left side of the bucket that's found on the ESB/Special Ed one. Also added the brown speckled weathering to the rangefinder stalk, earpiece and added the light gray scratches found in the dent. I call it done until I find a clear bottomed rangefinder topper.

    man, that looks... awesome!! not just the paint... the textures... did they happen by accident or did you intend for them to show up? I don' t know... the very, very slight structure in it makes it look... a 1000x more convincing... to me anyway...

    incredible... your one of the best!!

    Thank you very much. The textures were definitely done on purpose. I feel that since the paint is supposed to be damage to the helmet then it really should look that way. I take the .00 guage steel wool pad and smooth it down to a certain extent but always try to ensure that the layers show clearly.
