    Hey everyone, long time lurker gleaning info as I've needed. First time posting my own topic really, but I paint buckets for my etsy shop. I do replicas and custom work as well. Usually rattle can, getting ready to step into the airbrush department shortly for a Stormtrooper I'm doing... but I am shortly to be receiving some super sexy fiberglass Mando buckets, and the only problem is that they don't have a dent.
    Does anyone have some tips on how I might add a dent without compromising the integrity of the fiberglass? thank you!

    Use the search function and search for topics like "replacing the dent" or something similar.

    Here is one I found.

    He is moving a dent but the process would be the same.

    My shop is called Ad'ika Beroya (Little Bounties) and my buddy from Colorado, Darth Hair has the dentless domes. His shop is DHPFX. He's my main supplier for Bare parts.
