Darth Rifter and Jedi Keldor...Darn it I forgot.

I hope this little video will help some people. Smiley
Edit: Also Something I forgot to mention in the video make sure you clear coat paint your saber so the dry brushing doesn't wear off over time.  Wink

No problem. I noticed how no one had made one before. So I had paint, and a blank ultrasaber, so I thought why not. Plus it looks very convincing in person.

Interesting. I dry brush my warhammer figures but didn't think of doing it to my sabers. Once I get actual battle damage on there I may start this to cover up scratches.

I plan on using Testor paint to try paint some Aurebesh onto my saber. Do you think that paint would hold up in a more precise painting situation? Using a small brush would the paint go onto the aluminum properly to make something like writing letters come out properly?

Yes, Testors is a great paint to use for this. A small brush would be best and make sure you clear coat.

model paint, silver. Model masters or testors work well.

Is there a way to do this to the Bellicose? I might "damage" the shroud some and make the black parts look used.

Fine grit sandpaper will weather the black handle part on the Bellicose. I saw a YouTube video on that and the saber looked great and quite worn.

I would think it's enamel paint, the kind you use for model kits or metal parts.  You can find it at any local hobby shop (if they sell model trains, model car or airplane kits, or wargaming miniatures they almost certainly have the paints) or places like Michaels or Hobby Lobby.  As Darth Rifter said, Testors or Model Masters are two common brands.  It comes in little bottles.
