    Hey there & welcome to TDH. For anything having to do w/ boba you dont want to use any gloss! Not shure if the Jango guys use gloss or not? If your doing a layered job, ( where you spray your base metallic on, then mask, then spray your primary colors & mask again in necessary,) you may want to gloss over your base metalic color, but as for the primary colors, greeens, reds, etc- matte is what you probably want to use. For Boba, duller is better! Hope that helps

    Keep in mind that the Tesor's Dull Coat will eliminate pretty much any sheen from your paint. I freaked when I first painted my armor! Then when I sprayed the dull coat, it looked great.

    Hey thanks guys... I was thinking make it as you say Jango's kid, but Im not sure will be a lot of differences between an armor with the weathering effects painted on the primary colors.. what you think ?? , any way I will make some tests.Actually Im working on the molds and I made an vaccumform gauntlet test , I will prove the paint on it to choose which one is better.

    Jedi-Bob have you some images ? ...

    Hey, its up to you man! Personally, I have never been able to get a topically applied weathering paint job to look decent, although many others have seemed to pull it off perfectly. I guess it just depends on your personal abilities/prefrences! Love to see some pics after you get through w/ your tests. good luck bud!
