Re: Star-Lord Bag, professionally made (pic heavy!)

Got a question: if I am interested in one back and want to buy one. When are those ready to ship? (I am not 100% sure if I understood the informations on the first site, so I am asking)

Thanks :)

Just follow the payment instructions on the first post. Send payment via PayPal, and remember to include all of the information I ask for. I will start shipping some of the bags tomorrow, if you bought one now it would ship in the next few days.

If I will be able to pay next week, when will the bag be shipped? Because before the end of the next week I would have problems to get the amount complete..

thanks for help :)

So any ETA on these going out?
Yep, I've sent off the first several, and the rest will leave today/tomorrow. When I send them, I'll email the address linked to the paypal account you paid with to tell you the tracking number.

What email did you send it from, and what was the subject line? Having trouble finding it.

Can PM me that info if you need to.

Is the Run still open? :)

Yep, I have about 12 bags left, I think all Large size (only the strap length is different, the bags themselves are identical).
Follow the payment instructionns in the first post, including shipping, and all of the information you are asked to give in the note with your paypal payment!

I weathered my own bag to make it look older and more movie-accurate.
Before:

After:

After panels:

On the panels I used brown alcohol ink in an airbrush. It sprayed onto the screen printing too, but it wiped off super easily with rubbing alcohol. Similar technique for the straps.

Here's an album with these and more pictures.

Damn zlurpo that looks great. I want to begin weathering mine but I made the mistake of giving it to my fiance first. She doesn't want me to "ruin it". I'm trying to convince her otherwise but she's really happy with it as is.

Wow Zlurpo! Can you provide any more tips on how you used the airbrush? What type of airbrush did you use?

PM sent for a Large Sling Bag....I can't miss out on this!

Re: Star-Lord Bag, professionally made (pic heavy!)

I have this Master Airbrush here. I think it's a pretty basic version. I used Ranger brand alcohol inks. They are usually sold in 3 packs at Joann's, Hobby Lobby, and probably a lot of places that sell scrapbooking supplies (I think they are used for stamps or something). I used a dark brown color, sprayed it on at around 15-20 PSI, and then wiped it off with a tissue with rubbing alcohol on it to remove the ink from the metal hardware and the screen printing.

The straps got a little bit of red mixed in with the brown over everything to darken and color them to look more aged. Then I used black (leather dye, not alcohol ink, also works great in the airbrush) to age the straps even further and darken the edges. The buckle I colored with alcohol ink mixed with some thin superglue.

Also I found that the color can be stripped off of the screen printing with acetone. So if anyone wants to age the rest of the bag they can do so with that, but be careful it doesn't remove too much.
