    3 Weeks Ago - Nov 5, 2014, 11:12 AM - WIP ROTJ paint up for Kniveschau #1

    Hey so I've meant to start this thread just haven't gotten around to it.

    Painting an animefan fp premium cold cast lid for kniveschau. ROTJ style. Love to paint rotj it doesn't get the credit it deserves to be honest it's just as complex as esb or more so depending on how you look at it. Lots of physical damage that must be added 3 layers of paint not counting the base silver (using the cold cast here) plus weathering. Lots of fading in the layers too. Such a fun helmet to look at when it's all done. Anyway onto the dome...

    The back panels are drying right now pics later today. Thanks for looking.

    Awesome Dom. And agreed - while the ESB has more layers (if doing a layering method), ROTJ is actually a more challenging (and underrated) paint job. The detail of the layers, the misting, the fine detail, and the general randomness of much of the damage, is definitely tougher to nail down and have it look just right..

    Ok so got a good bit done today. Might not look that way but we're setup for the finish now.

    Green is laid down and will get weathered tomorrow. And then the blue followed by red.

    mind you this is the red I told you about not caboose. This is called rock island maroon. This was my first go at using it on a helmet. Used it on gaunts and it was perfect when weathered pretty convinced now that it was the color they used.

    Beautiful ROTJ bucket! You've been on fire as of late! Any chances of better front pictures of the finished helmet?

    Awesome Dom, it does indeed look pretty darn close, so you could well be right. With our lists combined, we may have a pretty solid recipe for colours to follow for ROTJ/PP2 . Great work bud!
