The left cheek is finished now. There are a couple of prominent scratches on the outer cheek that I haven't done yet. That's because they cross over onto the mandible, so I'll do them after I get the red airbrushed on. 👍 #starwars #bobafett #bobafetthelmet #the_dented_helmet #theempirestrikesback #esb #paintingcommission #fph2 #topicalpainting #workinprogress #asyouwish #starwarsspecialedition #rotjse

Painted the outer cheeks this morning. Once they're dry I'll begin the detail. 👍 #starwars #bobafett #bobafetthelmet #the_dented_helmet #theempirestrikesback #esb #paintingcommission #fph2 #topicalpainting #workinprogress #asyouwish #starwarsspecialedition #rotjse

Oh, this dome is looking really grungy now! 😁 There are just a couple of tiny details left to add, which I'll do at the end of the project. #starwars #bobafett #bobafetthelmet #the_dented_helmet #theempirestrikesback #esb #paintingcommission #fph2 #topicalpainting #workinprogress #asyouwish #starwarsspecialedition #rotjse

Fett Friday.... Stay safe and stay home people. This will soon be over if we stay the course. #boba #starwars #thebobafettfanclub #fettFriday #the_dented_helmet #cosplay #corona #stayhome #staysafe #bobafettcosplay #killstripes_studio

What's this? Some color other than gray and silver?? 😁 Adding the killstripes is a big step. I use the stripes as landmarks to place the SE damage on the side of the dome. It's gonna get grungy! #starwars #bobafett #bobafetthelmet #the_dented_helmet #theempirestrikesback #esb #paintingcommission #fph2 #topicalpainting #workinprogress #asyouwish #starwarsspecialedition #rotjse

Preordered. 🙂 You can never have too many Fett figures. Especially cool metallic ones. #starwars #bobafett #the_dented_helmet #hasbro #hasbropulse #starwarsblackseries #starwarsfigures #starwarscollection #starwarscollectibles #actionfigures

I decided to work on some of the SE muck. 🙂 There'll be a lot more by the time I'm done. #starwars #bobafett #bobafetthelmet #the_dented_helmet #theempirestrikesback #esb #paintingcommission #fph2 #topicalpainting #workinprogress #asyouwish #starwarsspecialedition #rotjse

The dent: part 2. Finished up the tail coming back from the dent. Now I have a choice: continue with the "standard" ESB damage on the crown of the dome, or start some of the SE damage on the front part of the dome. What will I do??? Stay tuned for an update! 😃 #starwars #bobafett #bobafetthelmet #the_dented_helmet #theempirestrikesback #esb #paintingcommission #fph2 #topicalpainting #workinprogress #asyouwish #starwarsspecialedition #rotjse

The dent: part 1. My favorite feature on the ESB lid. 👍 I've finished the dent itself, and have laid in the "tail" coming back across the dome. I'll detail that part next. #starwars #bobafett #bobafetthelmet #the_dented_helmet #theempirestrikesback #esb #paintingcommission #fph2 #topicalpainting #workinprogress #asyouwish #starwarsspecialedition #rotjse

I finished messing up the back of the dome. 🙂 All the SE grunge has been applied. #starwars #bobafett #bobafetthelmet #the_dented_helmet #theempirestrikesback #esb #paintingcommission #fph2 #topicalpainting #workinprogress #asyouwish #starwarsspecialedition #rotjse

I painted the basic damage shapes on the rear of the dome. Tomorrow I'll add all the fine scratches and SE damage. The dome on the SE helmet is really a mess! 😄 #starwars #bobafett #bobafetthelmet #the_dented_helmet #theempirestrikesback #esb #paintingcommission #fph2 #topicalpainting #workinprogress #asyouwish #starwarsspecialedition #rotjse

The right panel is finished now. As I'm sure I've mentioned before, it takes longer to do the big scrape than it does to do the remainder of the panel! 😆 You can see the nice SE scratches in these shots, too. #starwars #bobafett #bobafetthelmet #the_dented_helmet #theempirestrikesback #esb #paintingcommission #fph2 #topicalpainting #workinprogress #asyouwish #starwarsspecialedition #rotjse

One big giant scrape? Here you go. 😁 This is one of the most detail heavy areas on the helmet. #starwars #bobafett #bobafetthelmet #the_dented_helmet #theempirestrikesback #esb #paintingcommission #fph2 #topicalpainting #workinprogress #asyouwish #starwarsspecialedition #rotjse

The major shapes revealed. 👍 I'll be going in with a fine brush to tweak the shapes of the damage areas a little, and to add the finer details. #starwars #bobafett #bobafetthelmet #the_dented_helmet #theempirestrikesback #esb #paintingcommission #fph2 #workinprogress #layeredpainting #asyouwish #maskingfluid #rotjse

I airbrushed the dark green on the rear panels. It's funny, on screen it looks like it has so much more detail. 🤔😉 The other 2 shots show the masking fluid applied. Once it's dry I'll put up the reveal. #starwars #bobafett #bobafetthelmet #the_dented_helmet #theempirestrikesback #esb #paintingcommission #fph2 #workinprogress #layeredpainting #asyouwish #maskingfluid #winsorandnewton

Ear hardware installed. I used 2-part epoxy to attach machine screws to the ears, and rare Earth magnets to hold the ear cap in place. #starwars #bobafett #bobafetthelmet #the_dented_helmet #theempirestrikesback #esb #paintingcommission #fph2 #workinprogress #asyouwish #starwarsspecialedition #rotjse

Prep is almost done. I just need to install some machine screws in the ears and then drill the corresponding holes in the ear platforms. Second shot shows where all the dust goes when I prep a helmet. 😂 #starwars #bobafett #bobafetthelmet #the_dented_helmet #theempirestrikesback #esb #paintingcommission #fph2 #workinprogress #asyouwish #starwarsspecialedition #rotjse #gelcoat

Well, well, what have we here? It's a fantastic FPH2 helmet kit from @wasted_fett! 😲 I'm getting started on it for a customer from Facebook, and this one will be ESB number 42! Actually it will be a ROTJ SE, but I still count it as ESB. 😁 This build will incorporate the standard resin ears, but has an RF assembly from Bobamaker. I'm beginning the prep today. #starwars #bobafett #bobafetthelmet #the_dented_helmet #theempirestrikesback #esb #paintingcommission #fph2 #workinprogress #asyouwish #starwarsspecialedition #rotjse #bobamaker #gelcoat #resincasting

#Repost @the_real_superjedi with @get_repost ・・・ I weathered the Borden. This is an aluminum Borden from @machinecraftreplicas. I began with a wash of a "swampy" mixture of green and brown. Gives it a nice oxidized appearance. While it was still wet I blotted it on a paper towel so some of the metal would show through. Then I added small silver chips topically with a fine brush. I mounted the Borden on a small section of black styrene to block the holes, which are drilled all the way through. This will also allow me to fix the Borden into the cheek at the proper depth. 👍 #starwars #bobafett #bobafetthelmet #the_dented_helmet #theempirestrikesback #esb #paintingcommission #fph2 #topicalpainting #workinprogress #asyouwish #almostthere #machinedaluminum #thedevilisinthedetails

I added the "grease stains" on the dome. These are pretty subtle overall, with a couple of darker stains here and there. If you picked up one of the EFX PCR helmets, this effect was *way* overdone. #starwars #bobafett #bobafetthelmet #the_dented_helmet #theempirestrikesback #esb #paintingcommission #fph2 #topicalpainting #workinprogress #asyouwish #almostthere #thedevilisinthedetails

Sometimes even great resin castings have some minor imperfections. While prepping this Terminalfettler RF topper, I noticed a few small divots in one face. A little Bondo glazing putty will take care of them. #starwars #bobafett #bobafetthelmet #the_dented_helmet #theempirestrikesback #esb #paintingcommission #fph2 #topicalpainting #workinprogress #asyouwish #almostthere

Here's the arch after unmasking. 🙂 I added the tiny "drips" on the left side with a fine brush. Now I'll let this dry for at least 24 hours before masking over it for the white portion. #starwars #bobafett #bobafetthelmet #the_dented_helmet #theempirestrikesback #esb #paintingcommission #fph2 #topicalpainting #workinprogress #asyouwish #almostthere #machinedaluminum

The key to getting smooth curves is to cut the tape into really thin strips. I'll come back with bigger pieces to mask off the rest. #starwars #bobafett #bobafetthelmet #the_dented_helmet #theempirestrikesback #esb #paintingcommission #fph2 #topicalpainting #workinprogress #asyouwish #almostthere #machinedaluminum
