    New Jango WIP

    Hey guys- With the help and guided assistance from the members of this wonderful site I have officially begun my trek to fett'dom : ). With all of the support here on tdh I figured it would be an intelligent decision to post a WIP in order to gain insite as well as recieve guideance throughout my journey.
    Below is a list of what I have so far:

    1. ASOk bucket w/ saint_nasty paint job (IP)
    2. Cruzer cc upper extremity armor
    3. Cruzer cc back and cod armor (IP)
    4. Target "peewees playhouse" white and orange westar blaster mod : )

    Any suggestions are welcome and wanted to also give "sandy" a quick shout-out for all of his help thus far! Wish me luck!

    If you are gonna use those Rubies, pop the bulbs off of the ends and re-glue them with something stronger. They will eventually fall off inside your holsters if you don't. Happened to both of mine until I re-glued them. Also, you can glue a washer to the tip and paint that rather than the tip of the actual blaster. It will make them appear slightly longer.

    I'll post back in a minute with a pic of what I'm talking about.

    Here's what I was talking about with the washer... It makes them appear longer.

    Hey guys, finished some weathering. As soon as the acrylic dries on the tip of the blaster I will add the washer.

    Re: New Jango WIP

    Another thing you can do to really get the paint in the creases, is to just glob it in there, then wipe it out after a minute with a damp q-tip. It'll give the edges of the acrylic a faded look tapering out from the crease.

    Also, what I did to mine, was tape it off and mist the grips lightly with flat black, then I did a light sanding with a 1000 grit and a green kitchen scratch pad. I did this several times to get my grips like that.

    And last, I misted the entire thing with Krylon camo dark brown and clear coated it to seal it all in. The clear will grey your silver though, so be warned that it will not be as glossy as it was before. It does give it more depth though, and a nice smooth finish.

    I was going for this look:

    Hey devilstar-Ya, I did do that a bit but figured it out late in the project so some of it isnt perfect but overall, I think it turned out ok for my 1st weathering extraviganza : ). Thanks for the insite as your suggestions really took it to the next level bud!

    Yeah, sorry about that... It takes me like 10 minutes to post, because I always add stuff, and then have to correct about a hundred grammar errors. =P

    Acrylics wipe off with water until you seal them (unless they really have time to dry)... So you can always change it if you want. But once its sealed, its locked in there.

    Re: New Jango WIP

    I didn't get my armor yet. Cruzer is still making it. I know that back when people were doing rn'b that you just did the acrylic, but did NOT seal it. I don't know how people are weathering the cold cast. I didn't get that far yet... lol... The only reason that I have these blasters is because I bought them for my son a long time ago, and recently stole them out of his toy box to use as temps until I snag something better.

    Re: New Jango WIP

    I used drybrushing on my weathering....YouTube - dry brush tutorial

    only instead of silver you use blacks and browns and combinations. Also I found that stippling

    YouTube - How to Paint Rust Effects for Miniature War Games Terrain

    To really get into crevices use an ink wash ( super watered down arcrylic paint) this will run the paint into the cracks and crannies...you will need lots of layers to build it up...I used this in some parts of the armor as well.

    YouTube - Promodeller.com Weathering with the wash

    I have the cold cast armor and have done three other armors with acrylic paints in drybrushing and using ink washes...I have never sealed any of the weathering including my sandtrooper and have never had issues. I would not recommend sealing the cold cast because you very well may have to rebuff the armor at some point.

    Re: New Jango WIP

    Like everyone else has said use acrylic paints. I used 3 different colors. I think they were Mars Black, Wrought Iron, and a orangy brown color since I went the arena Jango route. I use an ordinary sponge and dab on the different colors. I then go back with a wet paper towel to even it out and remove any of the paint that was put on too heavily.
