hey i'm new to this forum but i was wondering...i just bought a don post 96 fett helmet and i want to make a custom mandalorian, so i was wondering how i might put some claw marks across the visor and not just look like i painted it on, i want to actually dent it...i was thinking about heating it up and doing what i would do with my armor's dents only a bit differently... any suggestions?

dremel but CAREFULLY and LIGHTLY I did this to my skirata custom variant collar plate and chest. When I get my helmet there will be a huge 3 lines claw mark from helmet to chest I can't wait to get the helmet then I will be done.

Just don't put scratches on the actual visor, any self respecting Mando would change his damaged visor out.

lol believe me, i dont want to do anything to blur my vision...my tusken raider suit was by far the hardest thing to see out of (it only had tunnel vision so imagine that at the local con, bumping into everyone and thing xD) i had to have my sister tug me around (i made her a jawa costume)

As mentioned above, use the dremel. It is the God of tools, but it takes some time to get used to. Just take your time and be careful with it. I'd sketch it on the part before cutting. You may also want to pick up some bondo and sandpaper. You can continuously add and subtract with both the dremel and the body filler. If you go all the way through, you can back it with some scrap plastic.

Geez, I couldn't imagine having to wear a Tuskens suit for very long. At least we have fans in our helmets to at least bring in some fresh air and cool things down a bit.

Wow that must have been HOT! I'd have dropped by Noon or so without question. I don't do heat well at all. Great costume however!
