Latest bit on lower ear, need to file smooth, eliminate machine marks

Now have to get back to doing the dishes 😒
Found this while cleaning out anodising set up...bit of progress...if accidental. Not sure about the colour though, I used a frost grey and black, that has a hint of brass to it 🤔

It looks great and the possible uses/applications seem endless.  :like:

Maybe a little bit of progress with anodising

I used it dye frost grey, might next time use black. Used a scrap piece that I'd stuffed up. At bottom I used a file to scratch away the coat to show aluminium underneath. I'm making some progress. I've also found if I leave the piece in the drain cleaner solution for a while, little bits of the surface gets eaten away....natural weathering and will blend in with my helmet better. Having a super clean and shiny ear(s) would look out of place

Bit more progress, might make a few of these...read somewhere where fett had a few of these. Be something to add in pouches
One may do something, others just filler  :laugh: ...the tape is too wide, it's just holding things together...it'll be painted and different colour tape too

🤔 Getting another idea for sonic beam weapon now...needs paint job finished as well
