Turn this plane Helmet

Things you need for this project.
$ = $40

Safety FIRST!
You may need a respirator or a air tight eyemaks for spray painting. Paint can coat lungs and get you sick. Sensitive eyes may need air tight goggles for safty

- Helmet of any kind that you want, I recommend finding a used one for price.
- Pray paint colors of choice
- Lint free cloths
- 600 grit sand paper
- monitor cleaner
- baby oil (non cream type)
- Painters tape
__- Fat roll of tape
__- Very skinny roll of tape
- Knife


First
Take all stickers off Helmet with a small Knife. You may have some scratches but don't worry, you'll sand then paint over those.


Seconde
Use monitor crleanor (Windex will work fine but the amonia in it may mess up plastic) with lint free cloth to take off all stickiness from skickers.


Third
Then use 600 grit sandpaper WITH monitor cleaner to sand out nicks and bumps in helmet, also gets out unprofessional plastic lines.



Forth
Use a lint free cloth with cleaner to take off the dust from sanding. Then use a little bit of the baby oil on the lint free cloth and rub it on the helmet. This will get off ALL dust and bad paint from before.



Should look like this after oil.

Then get ALL baby oil off be for going to painting stage.

Hate to sound mean, but it looks like crap. Sure it was doing great before you started painting, but once you started it went downhill.

1. Use non-reflective paint. Anything that shines will make you stand out in the feild.

2. Don't mae such harsh shapes in the painting. Making those white circles with cardboard was NOT a good idea.

3. Look at where the helmet will be used. You only need 3 colors maximum. If you are going to be in woodland why would you need tan and white mixed in with the green and black?

If you do another one, try brown, green, and black. Use non-reflective paint, and do it in random shapes that somewhat resemble stripes. Continue one mark, don't have a bunch of splotchy different colored spots.

LOL, its not reflective, the flasjh just makes it look like it is and its was stuill wet, the second pic shows how its not. Also, the place I play at has light tan tree bark and the leave that fall off it are brownish tan, then theres the mud and plants that have green.

Its really quiet good in person, its more like what you said, theres not "bloches" or spots, there more like randome goops. Pluse its a powder coat, not usual military print.\

Edit: WHat white spots?
