    Nov 3, 2012, 9:08 AM - CC question #1

    There's 1 spot on my Jango bucket that was a "low" spot. The roto is showing a bit. Any ideas on how to cover it up? I'm using the CC look on the bucket, so I don't want to paint the area and have it stick out. I guess weathering is always an option, but I'm going clean to start. Maybe rub-n-buff?

    Anyone ran into this before?

    pictures would help, but most likely Rub n Buff is the way to fix cold cast.

    What type of helmet is it? There are some natural blemishes on all of the Asok helmets I have ever done, but they don't take away from the look when finished.

    I would agree with Mullreel on all counts

    I know it's small, but it's right on the cheek. It' just buggin' me. And it's an Asok.

    yep some R+B will fix you up no problem, and then I always like to put some strategic weathering right over the R+B to blend it in.

    I used R+B all the way around the bottom of mine just to blend everything together anyways. I don't often post my own pics in other people's threads, but here is a pic of two helmets I have done. As you can see the dirt can blend and hide most small blemishes.

    Even with this much weathering they often look barely dirty in pictures when I am trooping.

    You can also mix some CA glue with Aluminum powder and create a "paste" smooth it on with a popsicle stick and then sand like normal CC
