View Full Version : Bike helmet comes back to life

I went out on some new mountain bike trails yesterday and got my *** handed to me by a log after a drop off so I decided it would probably be smart to bust out the helmet next time I go out there since I already fractured my skull when I was little.

Started off with old helmet, already sanded with 400 in the pic:

Base coat black after primer:

Airbrush the back:

Cleared and finished:

Design was suppost to have alot more to it but the white paint I had was total crap and kept clogging and then shooting out in big drops so after 10 different skulls that one finally came out good so i said forget it, cleared it and called it good.

once I saw the pics, I could tell that you were going to make something out of nothing. Great job taco :)

Freehand with freehand stencil (hard plastic with a ton of shapes cut on the outside) for the hard lines.
