hey jint, if youre looking for actual fine steel wool in australia, i always get into my old mans supply, but i did see pretty decent sized bags of it the other day in a super cheap auto for about $10. im sure you may have it sussed already, but incase you dont, itll likely work even better than the scotch brite - been working a treat for me on both my gaunts and helmet. all the best brother..
You need to compile together all the images of the process into one shorter pdf or something with notes in it from questions asked. This way people who want to print off or work from a guide without all the conversation of the forum, they can
I've written down all the steps, along with the other advice and small-talk that has to do with the paint, and plan to print them out. This will be my first try at airbrushing, so I'm a little nervous... But with your detailed step-by-step and pics to go with it, I am a little more confident that I can manage a decent result. So thank you so much for this thread! You rock
So, TF you still willing to do another ESB paint up...in the coming months perhaps? Im seriously considering buying a new bucket. FP or GMH perhaps..and honestly your paintjobs are the best in my book. I want the metal ears as well so i dunno if those fit on the FP premium helmet.
that is freaking AMAZING work bro. I would love for you to do a paint job on my helmet.Totally awesome workmanship and alot of pride in that paint job. That's one lucky fellow to have the honors of you to do that for him.
Amazing job, just started my first bucket paint job, I'm following your steps but using spray cans, so is kind of a hybrid, one question, steel wool is the one you use to scrub dishes? or in which department of a store can I find it??...thanks again for your hard and talented work, but specially for sharing it with all the Fett community
Look for the steel wool in the paint or hardware section. The steel wool is graded with 0, 00, 000, 0000 the more "0" the finer grain it is. The steel wool in the paint or hardware section won't have any detergent or chemicals added to them.
Awesome paint job. I have thoroughly enjoyed reading through this thread. It's nice to have such a detailed description ESP for someone new like myself. It really makes you appreciate all the hardwork that is put into bringing different aspects of the costume together.
Ok...i decided to have a go at this myself! Just ordered all the humbrol paints (and some floquils) If mine comes out half this good, ill be very happy Thansk TF for the list and tutorial, im sure it will help tons!
