    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???
    i spray very fine layers of 2-3 colors on top of each other while the paint is still wet. sometimes i'll even have one can in each hand and spray them into each other.

    Great thread, it'll definitely help me on my "build as cheap as I can" helmet. I have a set of Iwata airbrushes but am never against the use of spray cans.

    I piked up almost every color listed here at home depot yesterday and spent about 25 bucks. I already had metallic silver and primer handy. Thanks so much for posting this. Now if I can get some really good headshots so I know what to mask off, I will be doing great!

    guess I have to dig a little better. Most of what I saw were full costumes, not close ups

    The helmet is worse than the jetpack to paint

    Wear a good respirator though! IMO you shouldn't be able to smell paint when you are working! $50 is worth it to save your lungs and brain a bit!

    Re: stormtrooperguy's rotj helmet rattlecan colors

    Been searching high and low for Rusto Sage Satin, and having no luck. Some research online seems to indicate that the color is being discontinued. Amazon has a few cans left for an outrageous price. I ordered one, but going forward, I was wondering if there is an equivalent color of a different brand. Thx!

    Re: stormtrooperguy's rotj helmet rattlecan colors

    it's always been pretty hard to find. i bought a case of it online a while back for around $50.

    that's why i tend to do when i find a color i like... i'll get a dozen cans so that i have enough to go around if it becomes scarce

    So far I've been able to find it in gloss at A.C. Moore, and that's it for brick & mortar stores. None at Lowes, Home Depot or Jo-Ann Fabrics (which has a surprisingly good spray paint selection...who knew?)

    Re: stormtrooperguy's rotj helmet rattlecan colors

    gloss or satin... either way you'll want to put a flat clearcoat on it.

    Nice! I never really favoured the ROTJ myself as I love the 'eyebrow scratch' on the ESB but I really like what you've done with this. Thanks for the list as I'm not too bad with a rattlecan!

    Cheers,

    Re: stormtrooperguy's rotj helmet rattlecan colors

    Just bought all these cans from Home Depot and they still carry all the same colors with new updated cans. I had no problems finding the safe green either and was tempted to buy a few extra cans in case anyone needed some here.

    Here are the new cans if anyone is interested in what they look like 4 years after this post started!

    There is a satin sage green...it may not be in the painters touch version which has a different cap ( the sprayer) but there is a satin version...normally found at walmart. Gloss will be glossy...not something you want on the Fett.

    I am doing a color test on the lid and the gloss does stand out more than I wuld like. I plan to hit it with the dullcoat that was mentioned by stormtrooperguy to see if that dulls it down to a matte.

    Re: stormtrooperguy's rotj helmet rattlecan colors

    dullcote will kill the shine on gloss paint just fine

    it's cool that things have come back around. for a while home depot was switching to krylon and this was all going to be useless. but now rustoleum is back!

    one note though: you got hunter green, not hunt club green. different color entirely!

    Nice catch, I will have to double check to see if they have it. The paint girl was asking me 20 questions a out why I was picking out so many cans. I think when she saw me grab th metallic first, she assumed I was going to be doing a paint huffing marathon or something.

    I looked for "Hunt Club Green" and I couldn't find it, then I came back to this thread and noticed it does actually say "Hunter Green" in your post.

    Do you have a cap top picture so I can try an match to a similar color.

    By the way, I picked up the dullcote and here is a pic for anyone interested...

    Hunter green for the rear panels is correct...Hunt Club is for the armor...STG is getting old.
