Das Helmet by Go-Baby-Go Das Helmet by Go-Baby-Go
This Helmet was created for an all Helmet Art Show Being held at Vintage Torque Fest & it Happening THIS WEEKEND in Iowa at the Farley SpeedWay!!
I Sure Wish ta hell I could be there 'cause it's going to be wicked ... here is a link for info [link]

A Lil about the Helmet ... it was cast by Resin Master Caster 'Jimmy Flinstone' [link] & sent out & sent Out to a heap of Top Notch Kustom Kulture Artists ...

My Helmet was wet sanded then Primed with Automotive Primer ... then I used Acrylic with Metlflake (more like firemist flake) to paint the helmet with a top coat of Krylon Clear that was buffed & polished to That Brand New Ten Pin Bowlin'-Ball Smoooooooothnesssssss.

So Yes, I WAS POLISHING My HELMET for a couple of weeks ... & I still ain't Blind =P

This was wicked fun to paint

Superb work! I know this design is essentially "German" but the Irish military wore these helmets in the 1930s too,( just some useless trivia for ye). Keep em coming! :horns:

Wow...hopefully you make a pretty penny when you sell it, especially after all that! I'm not a huge krylon fan either.
