Irongladiator and Lazerjock beat me to it but I would definitely use Krylon Italian Olive, if you can get it. It’s a much better match than Spruce Green or Spanish Moss.
I’ll have to take a look at my local Valu or Home Depot and see if they carry it. I brought each color up and the Spruce Green and Spanish Moss are almost identical by looking at the photos below. Spanish Moss is a tad darker than the Spruce Green. The Italian Olive is a much different shade than the other 2. I’ll have to pick up a can just to compare with the other 2 in person.

Thank you for this! Looking at the caps from my Spruce Green and Spanish Moss, via eye test, looks closer to my Spruce Green. Btw, your kit is awesome

Thank you for the compliment.
If you have any questions feel free to ask.

I troop regularly with the 501st. Boba is one of the most popular characters and gets lots of attention. You will have so much fun even if you don't join the 501st.
I'm headed to a troop tomorrow at one of the local animal shelters.

Here is one of my favorite pictures from a toy convention last month.

2/6 - Here is the painted up T for my ROTJ bucket! Pretty happy with the way it turned out. I’m trying to limit my resources to film references and 1-2 other helmets I’ve seen. Next up, I’ll be weathering up the ears which are already painted silver.
Looking good. Did u mix the paint colour or use a stock one ?

5/7 - Look what I found! Got myself a can of the Krylon Italian Olive. I also picked up a couple different blues for the upper cheeks. Not sure which one I’m gonna use yet.

Ugh, I’m sorry my man. There’s gotta be a comparable item in the UK available. Unfortunately I wouldn’t know off the top of my head though :(
Yeah i used a website called encycolourpedia and found what i thought was the nearest alternative, but without something in hand to compare it to im not sure if ive done it right. Phones n stuff show different shades due to brightness settings etc. Id rather use the exact one, ill keep trying to find it, thanks.

5/8 - Happy Saturday! Weekends mean more time for Boba Stuff :) just finished up the key slot and ears. I sprayed them with silver, masked off some of the bigger areas and then used my airbrush to do some grey weathering. To get the fine scratches, what I did was use a toothpick to scratch up the areas before the paint dried.

Need more opinions! This time for the upper cheeks. I’m thinking I’ll go with the Krylon. I didn’t see a blue in Lazerjock photo.

5/9 - Here are the upper cheeks! I went with the Krylon Denim Deep Blue. I’ll be going over the area with black so I don’t want them to be too dark.

5/12 - Lower cheeks are painted! I will go over everything with black via airbrush once it’s fully painted. Very clean at the moment :)
