I tend to use rattlecan, mostly Krylon
Okay cool - thanks man! Already have a few cans of Krylon from other projects so this works out well.

I too like the "rattle" can. Krylon or Rustolieum both work well, the finish is up to you. Brush on is good for small areas or pieces, but if you're doing the whole hilt go spray for nice even coverage.

Okay cool, that makes sense. I'm going to try light dry brushing for some weathering on my Aeon v4's then figured I needed some kind of clearcoat to hold it all together. Now trying to figure out the best way to hold it for spraying, might craft something really quick out of some spare 2x4's and a wooden dowel held sideways that I can hang the hilt on, then I can take that anywhere and spray it

used a mix of bottle and rattle on my latest project (click below to see album)… dry brushing and washes go a long way to making great effects. The tutorials on these forums are massively helpful and I refer to them constantly…still want to watch someone do a tutorial where they do battle damage…but that's me ;-)
