Now I am not 100% sure about this, but I think the acrylic JP used was in a bottle and he hand painted it (not a spray paint). It might be available at Michaels. Another alternative is to use Krylon's Ruddy Red/brown primer and lightly mist it with a watered down black until you get the desired shade (airbrush).Quote:1) The Russet Acrylic, is it called anything else? i couldn't find Russet at our local Wal-Mart. or is it not at Wal-Mart, that's where i got all our other colors.
It's neither one of those colors. It's closer to the armor color but with a darker green and more blue mixed in. I'm not aware of any color in a can that represents that shade of green on the back of the helmet.Quote:2) is the back of the helmet under the red the same color as the armor(Spruce Green) or is it the same color as the area b/w the cheeks and the visor(Charcoal Acrylic)?
Testors chrome seems to be pretty popular for the base metal damage. OUr resident paint-guru, Motorfish, cut a sponge into a fine point and dipped into the cap of the spray paint, which contained a small amount of the Testors Chrome. He used the fine point to detail the weathering.Quote:3) I would also like to know how everyone weathered their helmet (colors, techniques, etc.)
I think it might have been gold. Either color will do, but the key is to spray lightly at a distance and build it up to the desired color. If you spray it too close with too much paint, Boba will look like a pimp.Quote:Oh and tylerdurden, for the right ear piece did you use an actual color called gold/pewter or 2 seperate colors( were they spray paints or acrylics)?
