    I've decided to go back and repaint my armor with the Montana Gold rattle cans that I found. I started off with my backplate.

    Rustoleom Silver
    MG "citrus" (base yellow for under coat) misted with MG "sand" and "brown"(tones down the brightness of the yellow),
    MG "fern green"(base coat for the green),
    MG "pepperoni hot"(A very light shade of green/yellow, misted very lightly to make the surface color uneven.),
    MG "green dark"(misted to darken the green the hue),
    MG "brown" and "coconut."(for the replication of dirt)
    Rutoleom "flat black"(adds depth, tones down the cleanliness of the colors, and creates interesting shadows.

    This piece was painted entirely with the "layering" method.

    All I've got to say is WOW! Looks great to me. I will be using this as a reference for when I paint mine.
