    it's really surprising how well it works!

    and since this reply reminded me... while my local home depot, true value and lowes stores ALL stopped selling rustoleum paints, AC Moore had a full selection of them, including all of the colors i named here and in the armor thread.

    I found all the colours yesterday at a (Canadian) Home Depot; they had the full rustoleum line. The only thing I couldn' get was the dull-coat, but I found a satin finish clear sealant, so I'll give that a test. Still waiting for my DP 96 in the mail, but I'll be practising on cardboard in the meantime!

    Instead of dullcote I am using a Flat finish clear coat I found at Lowes. Does anyone think this will be an issue. I am working on my first scratch build. Thx

    Re: stormtrooperguy's rotj helmet rattlecan colors

    looking to get started painting my first helmet. this looks like a good reference point for spraycans. what colors did you go by with upper cheeks. is that just flat black?

    Re: stormtrooperguy's rotj helmet rattlecan colors

    The upper cheeks are black on ESB, but on RotJ they are a blue-green color. I do thin layers of dark blue and green until I'm happy with it.

    Hey Stormtrooperguy...thanks for the info. Its great, and the helmet is awesome. Do you have similar information for the ROTJ Jet-pack. I will be starting mine soon? I'll send you a PM too in case you aren't checking this thread anymore...Thanks in advance

    This is great information. Definitely another great resource for beginning my ROTJ Fett helmet. Does anyone know if it really matters if I install the visor first, then paint the bucket? As long as I tape it off, it shouldn't ruin anything, correct?

    So long as you do a good job of taping it off, it shouldn't matter. It's just easier with the visor not in the way.

    That's what I assumed, but as I plan out the start of repainting the helmet I own, I wanted to see what others thought since they already have experience painting such great looking buckets. Thanks Webchief.

    Also, does anyone have any recommendations for people that do painting for people. For example, I have a Rubies Fett helmet, and was wondering what it would cost to have someone paint it in the ROTJ paint scheme, and how long something like that would take?

    Yeah, man. That'd be great. I've got a helmet that I plan on painting from this tutorial myself. I'm definitely interested in seeing how yours turned out.

    Hey Thanks!! I'm not the most computer literate in case you can't tell.....

    Re: stormtrooperguy's rotj helmet rattlecan colors

    Can someone explain misting. I get spraying from about 4 feet away with black to weather or make look dirty but I don't understand the part in the first post about misting with the two different colors. Is it the same as the weathering misting???

    Thanks so much for the rattle can info. I'm just not happy with the colors on my Boba

    Wow! Nice job mate!
    If my helmet looks half this good, I'll be happy!
    Your totally right about the colour idea, even if I like bobas green, there is heaps of colours to choose from!
