Introduction: STEAM PUNK STAR WARS " BOBA FETT "

PICKED UP THE BOBA FETT AT A LOCAL STORE FOR $14 AND FIGURED HEY LETS SEE WHAT I CAN DO WITH THIS.
BASICALLY STRIPPED IT ALL DOWN WET SANDED THE WHOLE THING.

TOOK MY SOLDER GUN AND MADE A FEW MORE REALISTIC BATTLE SCARS, REMOVED THE ELECTRONICS FOR A LATER PROJECT.

LAYED OUT WITH TAPE A LINE WHERE I WAS GOING TO DRILL TO PUSH TACKS IN TO MAKE IT LOOK LIKE RIVETS.

PAINTED ALL THE PARTS A COPPER COLOR THEN SPRAYED ALL THE LINES AND RIVETS WITH BLACK.

DUSTED A LIGHT COAT OF BLACK ON THE ENTIRE MASK BUT REALLY LIGHT AS I WOULD BE SANDING IT OFF ANYWAY.

AFTER ALL WAS DRY I WET SANDED THE WHOLE THING AGAIN  TO GET THE LOOK I WAS LOOKING FOR AND THEN PUT IT ALL BACK TOGETHER, ADDED SOME SCREEN TO THE FRONT VISOR PC, I DIDN'T LIKE HOW IT WAS ORIGINALLY.

ALL IN ALL ABOUT 5 HRS OF PLAYING AROUND.. ENJOY.
