First layer of color is down.









For the next layer should I do an esthetic primer between the blue and the next layer or just put the next layer right over the blue?

This is looking real good  8)  I've never done a primer layer in-between coats, so I'd say just put on your next one.  But it is up to you  ;)

Looks great! Not sure I understand what the "aesthetic primer" layer would do. Wouldn't that just cover all that pretty blue? Or would it just be a dusting of color?

Thanks vode! It's getting there. Going to slap down the next layer of color today. No aesthetic primer.

The "aesthetic" primer is just supposed to simulate an "in universe" primer or old helmet color. For example...if you didn't have a cold cast helmet you might want to hit the lid with a primer, then lay down a coat of metallic, then add the aesthetic primer. But because of the cold cast there really isn't a need to do that. However, I was thinking that maybe a mando might prime before adding a new layer of color. But really....would a mando give osik about more primer? Probably not. So I'm just going for color over color.  :P

The blue does look kind of cool but it's not my primary color. Because I've done two different Cpt Rex costumes old man Rex has been a pretty big part of my life for a couple of years. So the blue is my nod to him. Also the backstory for Tyno includes Rex and the 501st Legion. So Tyno himself has a lot of respect for Rex. So for a long time he honored the Old Man by wearing his colors.

But I think if I went with just the blue then it would be too close to Rex and either not acceptable for OM or confusing for civies. Hell, whenever I wear my TIE gear people call me Darth Vader. So I'm pretty sure if kids see a guy in white armor with blue markings and blue jaig eyes I'd be called Rex. I want the nod to be visible but not overly obvious. So the pretty blue will be mostly covered with red. It'll show through in a few areas. but for the most part it will be subtle....at least that's the plan. I'm not very good at subtle.  ;D

Not very happy with the results. Still have all of the topical weathering and grime to do. As well as the color for the cheek well and back of the helmet. But at the moment I'm not thrilled with the color scheme.

I think I'll also touch up the jaig eyes a bit. I like them but I think they are a little too damaged.

I know you have more weathering and grime to go and perhaps that would tone the blue down a bit? With your experience I'm sure it'll end up looking good. But to be brutally honest, I get a painters tape vibe off the blue bits, but I'm guessing that is mostly because I have been using it a lot lately.  :P Civies probably wouldn't see it like I am. Maybe more blue as a top color somewhere might help?

I think that looks pretty doggone sweet.  8)  I agree with Point, blue on the upper cheeks might help tie it together.

That's what I was thinking. And I agree the overall look is great!

Thanks for the feedback vode. I can't tell you how much I appreciate it.

Initially the plan was to do the cheek wells in a beige/tan type color. But you guys think the Rex blue would be best?

It's completely up to you, but it would make sense.

Thanks everyone.

Glad I could help you out Arador!

Well I decided on a repaint. There was just too much about it that I didn't like.

The red/blue/white just wasn't doing it for me and I think I did go a little overboard with the weathering. Especially around the jaig eyes.

So I stripped off all the paint and got it back down to the cold cast base.

What I'm looking at doing now is a grey main coat (dome and cheeks) with either dark green or black in the cheek wells, and either yellow or orange for the visor and jaig eyes.

I keep leaning toward yellow but I think the grey/orange combo might look ok as well. Still undecided.

At the moment I've got all of the chips drawn on and will be laying down the toothpaste and "primer" later this weekend. I'll get pics up ASAP

Thanks again everyone for the support and advice.
