ID:	75844 Paint is down. Now to let sit for a few days, then get the masking tape residue off of the coldcast. Some extremely minor touch up I want to do around the band. Should be no problem. Ear pieces are drying and will assemble this weekend.

    Started working on the weathering. Flying a little blind on this so far. I've gotten some pointers but it just doesn't seem to be connecting in my head yet how to make it look more realistic.
    Next up will be the helmet padding and fan, and the helmet skirt also. Bolo material ordered (again!) for girth belt, as I fell short on round one. Got one put together that would fit someone with a smaller waist, but not going to work for me....practice makes perfect I guess.

    For the weathering I like to use basic craft paint. I usually use black, burnt umber and gray. I stipple it on with a ratty brush, and I lay it on fairly thick. Then I let it dry for about 5 minutes and wipe it with a dry cloth. The results is that it stays in the creases and crevices and some small amounts will be on the dome and such. If you don't like how much is there you just rub more of it off. If you want more then just repeat.

    The results tend to be really uneven and gives depth to the weathering.

    What type of paint is craft paint? I bought some acrylic junk from Michaels that dries if you let it go more than a few seconds....

    It is the acrylic paint that comes in the little squeeze bottles. It is probably the same stuff you bought. Even if it has dried it usually rubs off with a dry cloth and some pressure. If you really don't like it then use a wet cloth and it will all come off.

    here is a thread I did for the Mando Mercs. Login

    It has pics of each step. Let me know if you can't see that, not sure what section of the forum it is in.

ID:	81385 Forward progress, but taking it slowly. Got the upper armor located, working it in sections to make sure I keep the spacing as accurate as possible and spaced right with the girth belt.

ID:	81386 Got the girth belt finished except getting it laced up. Still have to make the cover strip but holding till I can suit up to get the width right on it. Hoping the 3 inch width will work but I'd rather prove it before diving (or cutting) in.

    For all of my past and even current commissions, I've used Apple Barrel brand acrylics, black and brown. Walmart usually sells this and it's dirt cheap.

    I will mix a bit more brown into the mix for better contrast. The benefit to Jango is that the weathering is still quite subtle. Really the splotchy portions are along the edges, ear caps, along the brim, and where the blue/silver meet on the inner cheeks.

    Less is more!





    Also, aside from using the black/brown mix for the corners and such, I usually apply the same mix across all of the helmet. Using a rag/towel to wipe away excess, reapply, repeat until I get it looking even and the way I'd like it

    I use black, brown, gray and burnt umber. And it is the cheap stuff that dries quick. The quick drying actually helps with the method I use where I dab it on and then wipe off excess.

    Thanks guys! Now I gotta get my padding put in the helmet and locate the neck seal.
    Vest fits good but gonna have to add a slit down the back and get it hemmed up so I don't "hulk" out in this thing. I know jack squat about doing that or if it'll even work. Open to suggestions on that one.

    I'm in a similar situation, except the exact opposite. My recommendation is to have someone with experience and knows what they're doing to handle that. I'm pretty sure I exclaimed "I need an adult" when I realized I shouldn't be handling a thread and needle

    Thanks man! Will take some better pics this weekend once I get the ab plate on, and the girth belt strung up. Then time to locate the cod-piece and holsters AND gulp, backplate.

    Also gotta use a little hot water to reshape the bend on the collar edges. Needs to curl down a little bit. Hot water, bend, then dunk in very cold water ought to do the trick.

ID:	82575 Finally got the holster belt located to the cod piece.
    Tomorrow I'll cut the excess holster strapping, relocate the posts, then locate the thigh armor.
    was thinking to go with two Chicago screws per thigh. Good idea or bad?

    I think two is a good idea. I only have one per side but had intended to have two all along. I just got the one in place for a troop and then never went back (over the past 2 or 3 years) to put the other Chicago screw in.....one of these days I may get it done.

    One other thing that you may want to do after you get everything sized is to cut off the "wings" on the cod. I saw where Seeker did this and followed his lead. It makes it more comfortable to wear.
