    got the same one looks gate
     
  3. I have the same one, beautiful piece...unlike you, I am not too excited about weathering it. Haha

    Please keep this thread updated once you do start your weathering as this cape is a different material than what most use and I'm curious how you plan to attack it.

  4. I'll add pics to this thread when I'm done. I'm planning on taking it light at first, wool probably isn't as forgiving as canvas/ linen. I'm going light on the weathering as well. I'm sure the experts will chime in their opinion when I'm done (hopefully)

    I always find it difficult to weather nice new pieces.

    Please keep the pics coming because I think I purchased the last Limited Edition cape Christian had on sale and I really would like to see how yours turns out before I touch mine, My last cape I purchased from Christian (Economy Version) didnt turn out to well do to the fact that I was trying to inflict some true battle damage with my torch set on low(n), needless to say not a good idea but hell live n learn next time it will be airbrush all the way!

    You all are better than I am; I'd be afraid to touch something so pretty! Good luck on weathering! And don't overdo it as I did with my flight suit :lol:

  11. traced out the damage with a sharpie, trying to stick as close to Rafalfett's template

  12. using a pair of scissors, I cut out the majority of the holes, mostly pushing up from the bottom with my finger and using the scissors, cutting almost sideways

  14. finally, using a sharp steak knife, poked holes, twisting a bit, mostly using the serrated edge to fray. minus any weathering, here's the finished product

    Love my MOW cape and I haven't had the nerve to start this process. Not to doubt the master Raf but how did the weathering pattern come to light. I haven't been able to find one pic that shows the cape spread out.
     
  16. I used this as a visual reference

    Yes, I have that one but my question is what reference was THAT made from.

  18. my guess would be every visual reference, movie screen cap, etc. I'm sure there are many, many variations, heavier or lighter weathering.

    most accurate cape I have seen. Looks like wool, which is what I made mine from. I beat the bottom edge with a hammer.

  24. oh wow, thanks!! it's MoW's cape, which is wool. it looked great as is, definitely stressful when I started hacking at it with my knives, but I love the end result. it looks much better in person
