I have a grail cup I made a while back, but I just got a grail cup in the mail today:)

I decided to repaint my old one but want to see suggestions.

Were there different painted versions for a reason, or just various techniques used? I see so many variations, I wasn't sure if there were hero, stunt, etc... Versions.

Please feel free to post your cup and maybe I will see the style I want to paint it:)

Great cups guys :)

As stated before... There are many painted looks and I was curious if there are different versions of the cups used in the film?

Rich, there are alot of versions of the Grail Cup for painting. No-one really knows 100% for sure which ones were prototypes, hero, stunt, which were actually used, etc.

It also depends alot what the cup means to you / how you envisage it and also what you see on screen.

Here are 6 examples of different paint jobs. Each one is followed by its counter-part image of a screen-grab, Grails that were auctioned off over the years, and from the LFA book 'From Star Wars to Indiana Jones'.
