Legit or not?

There are model replica techniques out there for painting flame damage, char, and slagging.

If you really want to go hard core and "real," get a miniature butane torch like for gourmet cooking or a general hobby torch and experiment on some scraps or spares to get the feeling before trying it on the finished armor. I'd recommend a really light touch with it.

try this also, on your test burns, try spraying lightly the spot you want to "burn" with your spray piant, and (wait about 4 seconds the fumes are flammable) then run the lighter just enought to burn the fresh paint it should leave a bit of black/brown burn effect. this way if you mess up, you can wipe it off, and no harm to your paint job or armor

I would be really careful and indirectly burn it, more like give it smoke damage. The fire may melt the resin, try it on a piece of paper that you resin/paint really quick. If it works good then give it a go, your call though man I personally would just burn a piece of crap pep (like a boot you messed up) then replicate the look you get with paint.

Caps is not the Cruise control for coolz... Please don't do it again.

I will have to admit I liked the roman candle suggestion though ;-) . Sounds creative.

When you paint your armor, start off with a coat or two of black. Then paint your desired color over that. Then sand away the top color where you want your burn until you see the black and voila!

I havent tried this myself, but it seems like it should work. The only thing I sould worry about is not being able to paint over the black.
