weathering on iron man suits is generally done with silver paint if i recall
you brush it on the edges, with a paper towel or sponge or something similar
that way it looks like the color is missing there

I'm curious about this too. Jowe gave a brief explanation of it, but an in-depth video or thread would be great.


Crossing my fingers for Stealth´s soon to come video bout painting foam will ahve a short seg about wathering :p

If not I will use same tech as when I painted WH back in teh day.. ink with water :p

There are many different methods but just test out a few things on scrap material to get what looks best.

I prefer to drybrush silver paint over the edges, good weathering really makes a prop or costume look real. Don't overdo it though! Only weather places that would get real life wear and tear.
