Oya ner vod,
In response to your PM, I thought I would share this with all.

A while ago I stumbled upon a video by TK409 on weathering Boba Fett's cape ... and I looked it up again for your viewing pleasure: 
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b046u98yX_c

When I made my capes I put a rolled hem across the top and 2/3 the way down the sides because i was planning on shredding the bottom.

I used the weathering order from the video for my capes:
1) Shred it (using a roll cutter and scissors in places for tatters on the bottom and blaster holes)
2) Wash it (removes the just cut look and adds some fine weathering)
3) Spray it (use the weathering colors you plan to use on the rest of your kit)

I used desert like weathering colors on my kit aka brown, tan and a little bit of black here and there ... the weathering colors you use would vary depending on the environment you are in.

I Hope this answers your question and keep up the good work!  8)

Sorry for the terribly late reply. The video helped out a lot as did your advice. Thank you very much! ;D

Bad paint job?  :blank: Hmmm, might have to re-think that.

Just wanted to check to see if I'm on the right track with the weathering before I continue ;):

Covered up most of the red and white spots with a light brown.
