Step 6:

Ok, Here is where I did the spray foam. If I had had this at the start, I would have filled the horns first and stuff, but that's ok. Coat the sides, and don't be afraid to coat that sucker, you will be cutting it back after. Then put some duct tape across the gap to make sure it doesn't warp the helmet as it dries. Spray a little water on it to speed it up if you want. Once it's dry, use a dremel with a cutting but and even out the foam. Make sure it sits nice on your head. Sand it out and cover the entire interior with duct tape, paper-mache, and spackle. It get's a bit old, I know.
I used to do papercraft like you, <br>then I took an arrow to the knee.

I cant download the PDF :(
try to use foam without isocyanates. iso-cyanate is is carcinogen. there are ioscyanate free spray foams available. still not &quot;healthy&quot; but way less harmfull then isocy. .
Well, I have never worn it longer than 10 seconds, it is mostly shelf art until someone asks to use it as a movie prop or something. But thank you for the tip!
Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaay Thiis was what i was lookiing for TwT
It's a good idea not to use brand names, such as &quot;Elmers&quot;, as these are often not available in other countries. It is better to use the type of glue (eg. &quot;woodglue&quot;), or the chemical name (eg. &quot;PVA&quot;) to make your 'ible more globalised.<br><br>Other than that, love it!<br>DOVAAAHVIIIIIIIIIINNN!!!!!!!!!!
I disagree, Void Schism. While it IS a good idea to know and mention generic terms like PVA glue or spray paint for plastic, it is valuable to be as specific as possible about brand names and product names.<br><br>This allows those in the same country to get the specific items if they choose, and also to find substitutes as close to the original as possible. If I walk into a store and ask for PVA glue, I may not get a useful response. If I say I need something like Elmer's Glue All, I am far more likely to get what I need. It is also easier to look up specs on the internet.<br><br>I would go so far as to say use specific product names like &quot;Elmer's Glue All&quot; or &quot;Krylon Fusion Hammered Metal&quot; or &quot;Liquid Nails Heavy Duty&quot;, since a company may have several products that look similar but are not identical.
For other users outside the US of A it's hard to get a substitute for a specific brand name product series. <br>&quot;Elmer's glue all&quot; can be everything from cyano- to woodglue. <br>A specific product description of it's attributes and characteristics is the essential thing. <br> <br>&quot;a tacky non-transparent/transparent, viscous paper glue&quot; is far more convicing then &quot;get your Elmers XX Glue&quot;. <br> <br>Brand names are not redundant but, no offence justjimAZ, googeling for the characteristics of some brand name product to find a substitute in other countries is often a pain. <br> <br>anyways, awesome instructable !
Thanks, I'll make sure to change that. First instructable hehe
how exactly did you do the duct tape lining inside the horns ? <br>did you first glued the paper pieces together and lined the inside as far as you could get it ? <br> <br>or did you lined the duct tape on the inside-side of the paper pieces BEFORE you glued them together ??
ok. <br>from the first picture I can see you glued the pieces together and the lined the inside with duct tape.
ok so after glueing the first horn I had an idea how to make the duct tape process easier and tapeing the horn till the very tight tip. <br> <br>I started from the tip of the horn glueing the first two pieces together. <br>after the glue had dried I lined the inner side with duct tape stripes. <br>
Fus Ro Dah!!!!!!
First Instructable, and it makes front page and gets me a free Pro Membership. Not bad hehe.

i was gonna post more instructables but then i took an arrow to the knee.
Does anyone have any idea why I can't print pages 10-14? The numbers print, but not the images?
I love you...r helmet creation! I can not wait to be the dragonborne!!! Thank you!
I do some paperkura helmets and I think the best way to finish them is to fiberglass it. You fiberglass the in side and resin the outside. Then to make smoothe I use bondo. Then I paint it. I think it is a lot easyer than paper mache and a lot faster to.
Yes, that is very true. However, this instructable is geared towards &quot;Making it Real&quot; with minimum tools and materials, and not many people have access to fiberglass and resin. But yes, that would work a whole lot better.
This is a perfect example of being usefully specific about brand and product. If i am in India and want to reproduce your results, I could easily use this pic to find a close match.<br><br>I remember once thinking I invented using spackle for papercraft. Hahaha!
I used to make helmets too, then i took a arrow to the knee. lol<br>love this! it looks like metal!
I don't play Skyrim so I don't have in-game reference to work from to compare (I've seen images online but I don't know if they're in-game shots or artist renderings), but I don't think the visible creases in the finished product take away at all- looks real to me!
I was going to make one of these helmets but then I took an arrow to the knee.<br><br>Great work!
I hate that joke.<br><br>With that said, I like the helmet too.
