    Seems to me I've seen folks using an air brush to "weather" their jumpsuits or other cloth items. I was told that their are even cloth dyes that you can spray through your air brush, but the specifics are eluding me at the moment...Anyone else done anything like that?

    In a couple of weeks I'm going to weather my boba fett jump suit. I plan on using a paache airbush and floquil fabric paint. When you add a little fuller's earth clay it gives any cloth a nice weathered look. Hope this helps.
