Does anyone have pics of their helmet painted with this new discovery of ESB main green yet? I'm curious to check out some photos of your helmets. If it's great, I might have to repaint, but I've never used an airbrush before either... :(

For you guys that were using this paint in an airbrush, do you paint it on straight, or does it get watered down with water to spray?

I just painted mine this afternoon with Panzer Green. It looks a little dark at this point, but after a light sand, it may take on the 'pepto' look.

Any other suggestions for achieving this effect?

The "pepto" is a product of the flash against the Panzer Green. The green seems to lighten up a bit once you apply your silver/rust/other helmet colors and with a bit of handling. But I stress again, that the "pepto" effect is a product of bright lighting than it is of heavily manipulating the green via heavy sanding, ect...

I refer you to this thread! ;)

What does making skirts have to do with weathering helmets? :)

Or did I miss something?

BTW, thanks for the tips, guys. I'll keep an eye out for the pepto look.
