Weather a black vest
« on: Jan 22, 2017, 01:57 AM »
Hi vod,

Curious to what would be the best way to weather my black vest? I'm not liking how it sticks out from not being weathered like my plates.
Any help welcome :)

Spray paint misting is your best bet. I like to crumple the garment up a bit and mist on grey and then I'll also mist grey on the edges to simulate color fading. Then I like to do a sand brown and a brown similar to burnt umber. I'll mist the darker brown over a large area of the vest concentrating on the areas that will get the most dirty like the underarms, along any seams that could trap dirt, and on the flanks (from wiping dirty hands). I very lightly mist the sand brown on areas that are likely to catch dust and debris like the shoulders. The end result is going to look subtle if you did it right. If it looks like there's paint on the vest, you did it wrong :laugh:

If you want to go the non-toxic route, I took a set of "earth colored" pastels and sanded them over my black vest. Then I mashed the dust into it. You may have to re apply this method from time to time.
