    Re: something a bit different, fett helmet fresh from the sarlac

    thanks, glad you like it, its a fibreglass helmet i bought painted off ebay a few years ago, i had heard oven cleaner would strip paint so tried that, it did remove the paint, but also had eaten through the gelcoat in places as well, that gave me the idea.
    i sprayed the helmet with fleckstone texture paint, primed it, then added the holes etc with my dremmel, then gave a basic bobba paint job, the patina effect is not paint, its a chemical from chemtek paints, you sponge it on over still wet paint then leave it for a half hour for the affect to appear, bit hit or miss but i got it in the end.
    No plans to do the whole suit, but that is a good idea, maybe someone else will end up doing it, bit pricey i imagine

    Interesting idea for a costume Hope you took plenty of notes on how you got the effect. You should perhaps do a tutorial

    I love the finish on this, I tried doing the same thing to a "ancient Chinese martial art sword prop" before with horrible results.

    wow, you did a great job on the weathering... that really looks like pitted, rotted old metal.

    cheers, i am thinking maybe i'll sculpt a shoulder section for display, similar to the sideshow version, but i'll need a visor for it, are there any uk makers i can get a visor from? i allready have the fibreglass chest armour.

    thanks, i'm glad everyone likes the idea, i know the helmets not accurate, just wanted to get the look of a helmet thats been sat in a moist enviroment a long time
    I bought one of bobamakers visors, really nice, shame i had to basically trash it to match the rest of the helmet

    more washes etc around the back

    Took a trip out to the beach today, took a couple of shots


    We have an art instalation at the beach, 'anthony gormleys another place' a series of iron statues of the artist facing out to sea, basically he lifecast himself.
    Well i felt it needed a star wars moment, i had to edit out his erm 'tackle' as no one on here wants to look at that, lol
