    Hey guys- Had a great new year..hope you all did : ). Started the 2nd blaster mod and should be finished w/ that by tomorrow. Should I not weather my armor until I recieve my ASOK lid from stnasty in order to make sure the weathering is congruent w/ his work? Just a thought.
    Thanks

    I tend to weather everything at the same time so that it is even and similar in style. That is just my preference though.

    Re: New Jango WIP

    Thanks FF- Ya, thats what I was thinking : ). Below are a few acrylics I just bought so I could oscilate a few colors to see how they look. One is a flat black, one is bark brown, and the other is metallic antique copper. Any thoughts on these although I know it should probablly be congruent w/ the bucket...it appears stnasty's previous work (which looks phenominal) has some of these shades?


    Thanks

    Its all looking good so far ,
    How ever id strongly suggest upgrading the rubbies blasters as they will infare bring the whole costume down a level
    and seeing as you are going for all good other peices it wouldnt do the set up justice;
    this is just my opinion

    Hey Jinto- Ya, I probablly will do so. This has just been a fun little side project which has allowed me to practice weathering (although not as intensive) as well as pay attention to detail w/ respect to the blasters. Should help me whenever I purchase the resin ones : ). Thanks, as any suggestions are welcome from you all buddy. Thanks jinto!

    Re: New Jango WIP

    Hey guys, here are some shots im going to use as a reference when I start the weathering process (dressing a galaxy). These along w/ the tutorials youve all sent should really allow me to create some great detail : )

    Re: New Jango WIP

    Looking good. If you need some good reference images don't forget to look in the gallery section. There are a ton of great images taken of the suit at different events. They may be a little more clear than the images in the Dressing a Galaxy book.

    The blasters look good. Nice job on the weathering. Even though I have the MR blasters I have often thought of making some replacement tips for the rubies blasters for those that can't get the MR blasters or something else. Maybe I can talk my wife into letting me get a lathe.

    The colors are probably fine. I don't know about the copper color. Test it on something other than your armor to see how it works with the other colors.

    Hey All- Just an update. Still waiting on the bucket in order to weather. However, something to keep you interested...I recieved my Navy/leather gloves today (sandysith recommended) and they appear spot-on... fit like a GLOVE : ) HAHAHA- How they look?

    Re: New Jango WIP

    Hey guys- I have a question w/ respect to Kamino vs. Arena weathering. Obviously the arena will most likely obtain more dirt/ grime however, would the kamino garner some dirt as well? I have seen some jangos w/ just slight black on the edges (very slight) but not much, then I have seen quite a bit of dirt? What are your thoughts on this subject?
    Thanks

    Re: New Jango WIP

    As too weathering...it is all to your personal preference. Do you want to do super movie accurate or Do you want to do realistic or Do you just want to do what looks right for you?....how about that for a non-committal answer

    Seriously, I would say pick which approach works for you. If you want screen accurate than study the **** out of the movies and the stills in the gallery. If you wan to go realistic figure on the "Arena Jango, AJ" will have more dust and grime, more browns but also, perhaps some rusting on the armor from being on kamino and not having time to properly clean it. If you go with what looks good to you personally, you can mix it up a bit until you like the results.
    '
    For mine I attempted a more screen accurate look but in recent weeks and due to some mistakes while painting the jet pack my weathering has gotten a bit "more" than screen accurate. I am tossing around the idea of adding some "dust" to the crevices of the gauntlets, jetpack, and knees and perhaps a bit of dusty weathering on the jump suit.

    Not sure if that helped, hope it did. All in all the best solution is to pick a path as to your weathering and go with it. Regardless how you do it, it will be unique...which is what I love about weathering costumes. It really makes your costume your own.

    Hey SS- Phenomial explination! That makes a ton of sense..and ive began to quite enjoy weathering thanks to your help man! I think its safe to say that even if it starts out "cannon", it ends up being your own LOL! Decisions decisions..... Thanks a ton!

    When I do mine; I plan to go light on the weathering at first, then later if I decide that I want more, I can add it. It's easier to add it, than to remove it.
