[hide][top]What do you mean by topical and layered weathering?
Layered painting is done by applying a base coat (usually silver), then masking off areas of damage and applying your top coat. When the top coat is dry, the masked areas peel off, revealing the color beneath.
Masking can be done with a variety of materials, including mustard, toothpaste and specialty products such as Windsor & Newton Masking Fluid.
Topical weathering is done by applying your major color first, then painting damage (usually silver) on top of it.
Both styles were used in various places throughout the Boba Fett
suit. There is no right or wrong method, just whichever you are more comfortable with.
