    OK, are all these paints brushable right out of the bottle onto the armor? I've never used an airbrush before, and none of the local costumers I know have one. Please advise.

    Any paint is brush able, although you "may" go through a Little more paint then spraying it on because it will going on thicker.
    I went through three 1/2 oz bottles of the US med. green for my armor and I didn't have much left to spare by thinning it to its needed consitancy and spraying it.

    I do have an air brush, but I don't have it set up now.

    You can by those aerosol spray adapter things at Walmart or a good hobby shop for about $10-$12 that allows you to attach bottle paint and spray it, that is what I did and it works great.

    The kit comes with aerosol air can, adapter top to spray bottle paints, and funky car color paint.

    If you are refuring to your local hobby shop, yes, if they stock the paints.

    Not all shops do, I have three hobby shops in my area and only 1 has the paints. Train shops will also have these paints as well.

    Also not all the paints listed are available at the hobby shops either, I still had to go on online to get some of them.

    If you want to save yourself alot of hassel, go through the Testors site or any other site that has them and order them all off of there. Save yourself alot of time and effort from running arount to all the hobby shops. Or at least it did for me. - Tim

    IF you don't have an airbrush to work with this paints, you can buy the "Testors" set that includes the aerosol can, a plastic airbrush (really easy to use), two empty glass bottles, adapters and other stuff and of course the air hose.

    Total cost for it...around $10-$12 available at both Walmarts or Hobby shops, and you don't need a compressor cause it comes with an aerosol can, that you could just detach the hose from the can when not in use and you're good to go. My 2 cents.

    I have a question about painting the ESB Fett color scheme.Is the armor,jet pack,gauntelts all supposed to be "Panzer Green"? Sinc the AOSW armor,cod,butt are "US Med Green" I was wondering what others have done.I'm a little late to the paint scene,but I think I'm gonna tackle this baby myself.

    Thanks a million

    Right now I do not have any ballpark or definitive colors for the gauntlets or the rocket pack. I have been so busy lately and once I complete current projects I will be back on the colors a little more vigilant.

    Cool,thanks for the tip Lee My stuff currently has the Panzer green on it as a base and it looks great,but I was just thinking outloud and wanted to get some insight on whether or not it was "correct".Besides as diligently as you crank out paintjobs I'm sure I won't get ahead of you

    I hope to able to help out very soon with those colors so hang in there...thinking outloud is not a bad thing so keep asking questions some day we'll get to the pot of gold.

    Steve,

    I can't wait for Lee's discovery on the JP colors as I too am waiting for what he finds so I can slap some paint on my JP.

    I do think that the ESB JP main color is indeed the Panzer Olive Green. Below is a pic that shows that the color on the dome of the bucket is very close if not the same as it is on the JP. See what you think.



    I know that this probably belongs in the JP forum, and the mods can move it if they wish, but I post this here only as a response. In fact, I will probably parallel this post over there anyway.

    From what I can tell between Production stills and Promo shots the ESB suit has EXTREME similarities with the dome of the helmet (Panzer green) and the jet pack and gauntlets.The chest,cod,shoulder,backplate have me wondering so I'll have to at least look some more.The UP Med green which is used for ROTJ seems "lighter" (PLEASE someone correct me if I'm wrong) so I'm not sure if the ESB suit could have that color for those peices as in ROTJ.

    I only wish I had been more instrumental in the infant stages of the paint discoveries more but I had my feet kicked up back then. It looks like I'll get my chance to get my feet wet now.......maybe they should be Panzer Green

    Re: ESB Color list and Rouge Studios' techniques*update pic*

    With regards to clear coating,are there two that are required to do the paintjobs...a clear coat and then a dulcoat??

    What sheen should each of these be...ie. gloss,semi-gloss,satin,flat??

    On a side note I did an experiment with my photoshop and some production stills and promo shots from ESB.Basically I took samples of color from the Panzer Green on Fetts helmet/ in comparison to the gauntlets,chest,cod,jet pack where similar lighting is seen to see if the green colors changed between the helmet and said peices while keeping light from flashes similar.The software made no change when I did this rather crude experiment and since the green out of the bottles change rather noticeably I thought maybe the Panzer on Fetts ESB costume throughout seems plausible........again,thinking outloud

    Re: ESB Color list and Rouge Studios' techniques*update pic*

    Just wanted to bump this since I'm going to start repainting my helmet soon.

    So, I understand the whole idea of using a toothpick to make the scratches, do I use the same method to make the bigger scratches like the dent and such? I just didn't see much about masking off the big scratches.

    Thanks

    Re: ESB Color list and Rouge Studios' techniques*update pic*

    The big scratches work with it as well just do the scratches as soon as possible after paint dries if you let it sit a week or so it'll be hard to get the scratches to work well.

    Some stuff,....alot of stuff is topical.I'm no expert on what is or what is not topical,it really gives individual judgement some room to come into play.

    I've done all my armor,gauntlets,and soon to be jet pack in a topical fashion and it looks awesome if I don't say so myself

    I'll soon thereafter my jet pack is done move on to a complete repaint of my helmet.With this I will do some masking (liquid) mostly the back and some on the dome.

    Do we have any FS (US Federal Standard FS 595) No. of the AOSW Version?

    Sincerely,

    Mike

    Re: ESB Color list and Rouge Studios' techniques*update pic*

    There are FS conversions for most of the current made paints and Testors who now owns all of floquils color formulas and is now producing them has the FS number on their labels if it is an FS paint.. Floquil is usually not on that conversion since it's not made anymore if I can find a link I'll post it.

    I realy could use a better tutorial about that Blue Wash you talked about. Do I put acrylic paint in the blue wash and but that in the mister bottle. Or do I make another mixture with acrylic and water.

  23. #123

    Re: ESB Color list and Rouge Studios' techniques*update pic*

    The wash is nothing more than dirty water you you can apply with a brush or mist on. I typically apply with a brush and mist it with water to disperse it better.

    You make the mixture dirtty by adding acrylic paint not too much just enough to leave a residue on the helmet.

    One colour I don't see is the back of the helmet, the yellow-ish grey scratches. Has that colour been IDed?

  25. #125

    Re: ESB Color list and Rouge Studios' techniques*update pic*

    It should be up top in original post..I think I used a color called doped linen. But that could be wrong I haven't had time to dig into the colors much lately.
