Boba Fett ESB Helmet Paint Up by Fettastic

I was able to do the spatter, rust, and grease stain on the right side of the helmet as well as attach my RF topper. For the spatter I ended up using 3 different colors. I wet a brush with relatively stiff bristles with the paint I want to spatter. Then I'll flip the brush upside down, and brush my finger across the top of the bristles to flick the paint. I practice on a scratch piece right before moving to the helmet to make sure the effect and consistency of the spatter is correct. Then after I get the effect I want, I'll go back in and topically apply the more predominant spatters and shape them as best I can to reference pictures. It's really stressful but fun. I also do the stock un-attached to the helmet since there is a lot more rust on it.

Since the holidays I didn't have anytime to sit down and do any Boba work until yesterday. I finished the last details to this lid and as far as the exterior goes, I'm calling it finished

The last of it includes some very subtle details like the crack on the black cheek area...

and the rangefinder topper with the perspex block and view finder...

I love these paint up threads from those of you who've mastered the process. It's dangerous though...you make it look so easy that I almost think I can do it as well.

Thanks guys! As you are well aware, there are many very talented painters on this forum for both armor and helmets and a lot of them do take on commissions. However, I would encourage you to try doing it yourself if you don't mind a small investment for paint and time (there is a learning curve). You never know, you may have the knack for it and if anything else may really enjoy the process. If you are interested in my services feel free to PM me on here anytime ;)
