    May 7, 2015, 6:16 PM - Boushh Paint and Dye Colors? #1

    I've started ordering parts for my wife's Boushh. I don't know if I can budget for an airbrush right now, so this will likely be another budget Boushh. Can anyone provide a list of recommended spray paints for the hard parts? While we are at it, I thought I might ask about leather dyes as well.

    I used Rustoleum spray paints & used a number of different browns for the armor & the helmet. I will try & compile a list of what I used on all the various pieces.

    Here is the spray paint color list that I used on my wife's Boushh: http://www.thedentedhelmet.com/f68/b...82371-a-47893/

    All paints were Rustoleum.

    -Helmet-

    The base silver color: Silver Metallic #7271830, after spraying this if you are doing a layer method use a matte clear coat on it to help with paint adhesion.

    The main color I used for the helmet: Flat Brown #214085

    Used for weathering:

    Ultra Cover 2X Satin Expresso #249081
    Satin Enamel Dark Brown #241239
    Satin Enamel Chestnut Brown #7774830
    Enamel Leather Brown #7775830
    Gloss Dark Grey #249115

    -Armor-

    Main Color:

    Enamel Leather Brown #7775830

    Weathering:

    Flat Brown #214085
    Ultra Cover 2X Satin Expresso #249081
    Satin Enamel Dark Brown #241239

    Some flat black was used for the weathering on the helmet & armor as well.

    The weathering was done misting the colors over the helmet & armor lightly to give it an irregular & worn look. Experiment to get the desired affect.

    The majority of the damage on the helmet was done with layered method, but some of it was done topically.

    I hope this helps if you have any other question let me know.
