So, there's a pic of the PrePro Fett that the right chest and center piece appears to be blue. Has anyone noticed this, and is that accurate? I'm doing a PrePro and was thinking of adding this touch.

Can anyone enlighten me on that?

you'd probably have better luck asking in a new thread than in an rotj paint colors thread... folks that know the pre-pro suit may not look here because they don't care about rotj.
 
I'm in the process of sourcing rattlecans here in Norway (you can't get Krylon or Rustoleum here), and it's a tedious process. I've found a few colors that work, but then I hit another snag... You don't get rattlecans in dull/matte finishes (other than clear, black and white). Is it the same with Krylon and Rustoleum? If so, what do you do to achieve a dull look to thre paint?
Have you found any aswers to this yet? I might have some tips if you havent found any yet.

Hey guys, just got done painting some trash can armor :). I found the hunt club green at a little country knockoff of Lowes near my house, couldn't find the right yellow though and what I got is too bright for my taste. To me though, the hunt club green is too dark (by the way I haven't added the dull coat yet so maybe that will tone it down).

But still, this is my first try at making and painting armor so I'm happy with the outcome.

oh, and I tried heating this part up to make the dent, but heated it a little too much...

Well, what I did before painting, was just to grab a lighter and heat up the area to be bent, just enough to heat slowly the area about 6" away below the area, not too long since you will burn the area....and the whole piece if not carefull. Slow is better. Before getting "brownish", take away the lighter, and use a small screwdriver handle (or anything round for this matter) to make the dent, just big enough to make the proper sized dent.

Hope that helps.

 
Okay guys, I know this isn't even close to movie accurate, but that was a conscious decision (for the most part, a few uh-ohs :eek:). I used the colors and methods described by Stormtrooper Guy (Thanks (y)) and blended with Apollo's Mandolorian tutorial (y)(y). I was going for the ultra-grime and battle scared look. Used sintra. What do you think? Too many liberties taken? :confused
:cheers
(troubles with internet...will post pics when speed returns)
