ROTJ:SE Paint Up

Boba Fret

I recently bought a raw cast Minutefett bucket and I commissioned a friend (@fettfromhell on IG) to paint it up as an SE lid. We’ve been experimenting with the light green color and we think we got a good tone. Laid it down tonight and I think it looks fantastic.

While the green is Archive X, we will be using Floquil for the kill stripes. We tested to make sure we liked the back kill stripe color over the green we mixed. Here’s a sample:

I can’t wait to see the final product. It’s going to be amazing. My buddy Dean does some great work!

I’ll keep this thread updated for anyone who wants to follow along the process!
 
Kill stripe time. Dean’s using the impressions on the MF raw cast to guide where to mask. Next up is masking fluid and then laying on some Floquil!

Some more progress on the SE helmet. Dean used a process he learned from Ord Mantell on sculpting the visor

He used this clay mold to get the proper curve and ensure a tight fit

Beautifully done!
 
Dean got a cool find on eBay today. Looking at the floquil colors and thinking we got really close to these original colors.

The red looks pretty spot on

And we’re really happy with the killstrip yellow too!
