As someone who's Mando is also a Togruta, you're giving me hope that it can be done!

Anything you can imagine can be done.
It's all about bullheaded perseverance despite all of the screwing up... :)

Here's an old trick I learned for doing feathered paint edges on model planes.
Lay your stencil down on your piece using a thin layer of poster putty so that it sits a millimeter or two above your piece. Spray your paint perpendicular to the stencil, avoid spraying at an angle. The paint will overspray slightly under the edge of the stencil making your paint edge soft and not so sharply demarcated from the base color.
It's a technique used to depict faded camoflauge and markings on model aircraft and ships. As always practice first on test pieces. You may find it tricky as the horns are curved as opposed to the fairly flat panels of an airplane model.
I wish you luck. This build is truly awe inspiring!

I'm just your average everyday freak-at-heart trying to adjust to modern suburbia and family life without eating the children or going on a killing spree down at the local shopping center. Again.

That's actually the technique I was thinking about, but I never tried it just as you said: because of the curves.
Maybe I will give it a try. At least now I know it's a legit technique.

Thanks.

The key is take your time. Don't try to do it in one pass. Especially if you're not familiar with the technique. But if you do even half as good with the horn stripes as you've done with the rest of the build then I have no doubt they'll turn out spectacular!
