Here's my armor I painted before Halloween. I was in such a hurry to finish my suit,I didn't have time to post any photos of me showing my first time painting. I had only the one photo of my gauntlet showing leds before priming with plast-dip. After also priming armor with Plasti-dip, I then coat them with plain old Rustoleum Silver "(NOT metal flake or hammered types... those crack too much)". Finally using acrylic black to give it the aged weathered look. Last I coated them with a no gloss sealer. I want to thank Scott "Mannowar" for the painting tips he gave me on this too. O'yea be sure to practice safety and wear gloves and the proper mask. No not your Predator mask either.
