My suggestions:
1. Get red paint.
2. Get paintbrush.
3. Paint the droids.
And there you have it! :D

You know, I did deserve that...but I should know better than post when I have heavily medicated (for a cold).

I meant to state that I also have a red rock from Red Rock, Arizona and want to also use that to apply a weathered, textured look to the droids.

Should I paint and while it dries grind some of the rock to dust and sprinkle on the droid while they dry?

Why don't you just try one out and see the effects. Sorry I just can't picture the effects. Perhaps you could post a pic of what you actually intend to do then we can give you our opinions. :crazed:

This one is using a flash on the 1st droid (British Crimson color)

This is the original factory paint.

I look forward on hearing everyone's feedback on this attempt to color my droids red......

Work's for me.

I'd take the British Croimson color, it looks more like the actual one

I agree with 187... The Brit Crimson color looks closer to the actual Hasbro droid! :)

Regarding the rock and dust technique, it depends totally on you. I think doing it on a couple would look really neat! But the drawback is that this process is irreversible! So if you think its worth doing that to your droids by all means go 'em tiger! :)
