When you're weathering a prop you've made/bought, what technique do you use to black/brown/green wash?
I'm pretty new to it, but this is a helmet I did yesterday... (don't judge too harshly, I've never really weathered with just paint)
I painted it gold first, then I "buffed" brown acrylic into it with a damp paper towel, then I used a dry paper towel to give it streaks and scuffs with more browns and black, then went back and did a little highlighting with the gold spray paint (krylon) using a piece of steel wool as my "brush".
I think I went a bit too crazy. You can judge me.
