Weathering on soft parts
« on: Mar 13, 2019, 12:43 PM »
So I weathered up my cape and my girth belt and holster and was looking for to see if anyone weathers their flight suit. I know some do with a lighter colored ones but mine is black. I burned my cape so idk if I should put some burn marks in my flight suit too... not to the point there would be holes but discoloration.

How about mud or dust weathering on the black?

The trick to weathering darker coloured soft parts is to think in reverse so greys browns earth tones then if you go too light on anything you can always darken it with a little black. ;)

Have a black cape which I weathered using acrylic paint and it ends up making the material so stiff. Hahahah :laugh:
I tried sprinkling bleach and nothing happens , the material is stubborn !!

It all depends entirely on what weathering you're using on the rest of the kit. If you've got brown mud on shin plates then  your boots and flightsuit legs round the shin should have the same level of mud, knees should have some, and thigh armour, kama and flightsuit thighs should have splatters - this mimics what mud does when you walk - it flicks up and coats you with more hitting the lower body. If you add mud to the gauntlets or chest, then you need to add it to the vest and flightsuit arms etc, which would more mimic a fall into mud. If you can't work out how it would fall naturally - go grab a pair of trousers on a wet day and go jump in muddy puddles - bingo natural weathering guide to match.
I have explosive damage on one of my kits so everything has holes and repairs - flightsuit,  vest, kama, cloak and armour. It was also all hit with black coal dust style weathering to mimic fire residue and I burnt any of the fabrics to get the discoloration from fire. However that does mean my black flightuit has no colour weathering as the black does not show up - it just has its repairs. I will not add lighter weathering to it as that would mean I have to go over the entire kit with lighter weathering. Why would the flightsuit have brown mud but the plates not? Don't just add colours because, think it through, how would the weathering get there?

Therefore - lay out what you've got so far, look at where you've already got damage and extrapolate what you might need - blaster marks in the chest on the armour and vest - sure that could have also caught an arm with a stray shot. Add a small burnt patch/repair. Mud or dust on your armour - get some on the flightsuit.
