The base is aluminium base coarse from createx with a coat of clear. The design should be classic a little bit oldschool. I take a lot of pictures and want to show you the steps of making this helmet.

    This is so cool Micha. I saw the pictures on Facebook and was hoping we’d get a few more on our forum here. Amazing work.

    Is there any other medium you have to learn to master? Looks like you’ve pretty much mastered them all. :D
    Great job! :thumbsup:

    Thank you very much. I like all kinds of art and art objects. I like to try new techniques and especially in automotive custom painting there are many interesting techniques. I see myself more at the beginning of a new learning phase. This helmet was very complex. The planning of the work steps is very important, some techniques cannot tolerate mistakes. I took around 100 photos of the helmet, step by step. Today I would take a few steps differently, but that's part of the learning process. I'm still very happy with the result. In real life, the helmet looks even better than in the pictures.

    Just thought. I could maybe 3d print out a little mini helmet for the shrunken head dude in Beetlejuice and paint him. Be good for a laugh.
