    i am looking for a thread that might have been done allready that shows how to properly weather armor to show damage, scratches, scrapes etc. I want to do this to my armor and weapons. I like how mine turned out but I want it BETTER!!!

    what color of armor is it? what is it made from?Plastic? Fiberglass? are you using any stickers ( like the bantha skull)? Will you be dremmelling bullet/shell dents like boba or using some way to heat it up and put a dent in? The more external physical texture may mean dry brushing or layering ( like boba's paint chipped armor). But a more smooth may mean more washes and corner weathering like

    These differences could mean the difference beteween dry brush, washes or both. There are lots of threads for both right here but I am not yet sure how to point you in the right direction.

    Course your could always just crwal through the mud in it
