Recently I decided that I'd add a row of spikes I'd carved out of wood, right down the center of my helmet of my custom Mando. It was suggested that instead of spikes, it would look cool if I weathered the spikes to look like a real horn or whatever from a living critter-the Mythosaur being that perfect critter in my mind. After thinking about things for a while, I've decided that the spikes I carved are too uniform to look like a natural growth etc so I'm going to have to look for some type of resin horns of some kind. Any suggestions where one can find some source of some sort of horns or the like, please let me know. I'd thought about Darth Mauls horns, but they seem to be a bit too short and stubby.
Then after finding a suitable set of horns, I need to find a tutorial or some good tips on how to paint the looks of aged and weathered horns and bone. Can anyone offer any suggestions in doing so. I want it to look natural or it's just not going to look right. Any suggestions-please???
