    helmet-jpghelmet2-jpghelmet3-jpg 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.

    Re: Jango Fett AOTC

    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.
