    May I add rusting as a tut?

    Use a piece of kitchen roll to clean most of the paint of a brush, then dust the brush lightly over the desired areas to give it that tarnished, rusty effect. Black and orange are the best colours for this. Dusting over edges will make details stand out clearly.

    Just puttin' in my tuppence.

    I'm no sure if I missed something, this will work on metal armor, correct or incorrect?

    Yes, that's a tip definitely worthy of a "sticky."

    Keep your costumes away from ignorant family members! @_@

    This some good info!

    I learned a few tricks myself when I was doing an X-Wing helmet and I was working on the set of Green Lantern last year as prop/costume flight gear consultant. I was able to get some great tips from one the paint guys on set. He had been doing that stuff for like 20+ years! He was amazing he could make paint look like rust and you had to be less than 10-12" from it to tell. Step back 3 feet and it looked like rust it was insane!

    you have a beautiful costume... but it's TOO beautiful. It's fresh
    out of the factory. How will your bounty hunter get any respect if he still has that 'new car smell'? In a rough
    galaxy, who has the time to polish their plastoids?
