    Mist it with spray paint. Black and grey are good colors. Just mist it, DON'T spray directly onto suit. I've seen cool looking castiron color at the autoparts store.

    Try rubbing it along the floor of your furnace room at home (if you've got one) or the floor of a garage .. great stuff !

    You can basically do anything to weather the jumpsuit. When I weathered my suit for my ESB Boba I used an airbrush and sprayed it with black acrylic paint to give it a nice dirty look. I also am going to go over it with a little bit of gray and brown in the future.

    Well, if you have an airbrush, there's a line of paints called Createx that are specifically designed for fabric. I used a mix of dark brown and gray on my Boba flightsuit, and it worked great.
    You paint it on, then to make it permanent you "heat set" it with an iron once it's dry.

    forget the paint. wear it next time you work on your car. it's always time for an oil change.
