    So you want to make your armor dirty, but also want to be able to take the "dirt" off so that the armor is clean again?

    What about...dirt?

    No...seriously. Maybe charcoals and pastels? If you have a clear coat on the armor you could probably grind some up and rub it on with your fingers then wash away later. No oil based pastels, though!!!

    Yeah I was gonna say dirt would work quite nicely if you want it dirty... If you do happen to use charcoals, be careful what you rub up against, as you'll be leaving black streaks all over your wifes brand new white angora sweater or the like...That stuff is ultra messy.

    Tempera paint. Sandtroopers swear by it. Just be aware that it'll need to be reapplied from time to time.
