    Are you going to use rattle cans or airbrush?

    Hehe, yep, Rattlecan is Spraypaint. The reason he asked is that many members paint their armour and helmets with airbrushes. If you are using Spray Paints, you may want to contact TK7602, he does a great job with Spraypaint and his ROTJ suit.

    Thanks

    I doubt you could get the colors you need from floral spray.

    A Fett Full of Dollars has the best spray can colors in my opinion, talk to him.

    As far as airbrush colors go, there is still no set "list" like Rogue Studios ESB colors. I am working with RS to resolve that issue though.

    they can be brushed on as well as airbrushed. One of the colors come in a rattle can.

    Hey there! I'm glad to hear all the confidence in my rattlecanning!

    I've got a walkthrough of my paintup here:

    Including all of the colors I used.

    Hopefully it will be of some help!
