Body Weathering
#1
Time to get started on body weathering before i put the legs on.
Here is my reference Photos and my Desert Powders.
ill be applying the powders first for the desert colours, and then following with a dark metallic powder for blast scoring and surfaces scratches.
i might also highlight certain corners with a silver pen to simulate paint being removed.

first 2 waves of weathering, more to come!
first wave was desert powders.
second was some dark dirt/carbon markings 
pictures always seem to look so different then the actual thing but i think it captures the general colours.
i found the desert looks more washed out in the pictures where in real life its much more pronounced.

for the sand colour im using a powder and a wide brush to pat on, and then brush into the plastic. 
for the darker parts, im using a short thin brush, adding paint, then dabbing on a towel, and then pressing into the panel then finally smearing with a finger for the smoothed effect.
im thinking of adding a more uniformal sand colour and spread it more across the bottom of the body

thats really good, because of the paint on my R2 the powders didnt stick as well as they did with my unpainted piece of scrap pla, but i was still happy with the result.
i suspect the surface was alot smoother and less ability for the powder to grub/rub into
