I know, for the moment I'm just trying to get the paintjob at least started in the direction I want. I also painted my helmets visor and cheek areas orange (it looks awesome!) after te paint dries and I get an idea of what I want to do with the weathering, I'll make it look more lived in. When I get back to my house I'll try that charcoal/chalk idea out
I'm going with blah and orange for high school colors. I plan on adding black to the armor, as well as weathering. I just need to know the best way to weatherly kit, any suggestions?
Didyou mark off areas on your mask with liquid latex or toothpaste between paint layers?? Could not tell by posts made. If not, how do you plan on westhering the bucket? Just someblack wash to look older? How will you go about doingall the marks,dings,scratches,chips and dents. If they are just painted on. It will take a lot away from the look. If you marked off between coats. All you wouldhave to do is scrape off or sand your marked areas and then it would look like the paint came off due to normal ware and tare.
Just as an add on to the thread, here is a pic of my crushgaunts so far. Their made with the work gloves i had already, with studs hot gluded on top the padded areas.
I had actually done that with an old pair of gloves for my kit. they held forever. Problem was, they severlly effected dexterity and made holding my rifle a pain in the shebs. Not to mention they tore up the paint on my rifle and helmet, from carry and taking the bucket on and off.
