Heyoo. Got a nice little cozy thread here to share with y'all about a little mini-build I did for the holidays; the classic iconic and much beloved Holiday Special Fett. Mostly inspired by both UMD S4L 's recent toon shaded helmet and rewatching RedLetterMedia's Holiday Special-special. I wanted to keep it pretty simple- rattlecans only and not too much worry about any templates or anything. Something I could do in a week. Looking around for reference I took a liking to the SDCC Holiday Fett figure and also just normal ESB fetts tone shifted blue. So it was pretty easy to reduce it all down to 3 colors, a light blue, a middle blue, and a dark blue. A pretty welcome idea after the complexity of my ESB paintup. My picks were Rustoleum French Blue, Wildflower Blue, and Brilliant Blue. Of course since they're all glossy paints I needed a matte clear too. Oh and a metallic. Brilliant Aluminum by Krylon. I started with that. Then I masked off a few damage zones for the silvers and covered the whole thing with the Wildflower Blue as a general under-layering. Then started masking for the French Blue topcoat. I'm pretty much just liberally applying the mask free-hand, loosely sorta following the ESB patterns. Keeps it somewhat unique, and also keeps it quick and easy to do After that it was time for the dark blue upper cheeks, so got everything but they masked off. Then went ahead and got everything peeled off and put a coat of matte over it to get rid of that icky glossiness. Seeing it peeled.. it's probably a little more damage than I wanted. I was intending for something a bit more conservative, more like the SDCC figure, but it can be hard to visualize it when you're painting on the latex. It's alright though, just something different. Unfortunately the clear caused a little bit of paint wrinkling in the Wildflower Blue layer. I was careful to let each later get a full 48 hour dry time, but I suppose that color was just a little bit slower than the others (and I'm sure the cold weather doesn't help). Bit of a let down, but fortunately it's just in a few select areas and only affected an under-layer. The French Blue held up fine. After that I finished up assembling the RF stalk and other accessories, and did a quick weathering pass. I tried to go a little heavier on the tan and brown colors, since Fett did wear it on Tatooine afterall.
