Here is the Captain America WWII Helmet I made over the weekend. I saw the helmet at a store for $10 and couldn't help myself once I saw it.
Step 1: Items Needed
Here is a list of the items you are going to need
Helmet (Surplus stores or where ever you can find)
Scotch Paint Tape
Step 2: PRIME!!!!
Here is the primer stage
Make sure to get an even coat
Step 3: Blue
Here is the blue paint.
Same as the primer get it as even as you can
I did about two and half coats
Step 4: How Do You Spell A?
Here is the A part
I used the scotch tape here and covered the front part and wrote a big A in the front (no pics)
Then went and cut out the A with the utility knife.
Some of the paint came of with the tape here around the A (I used the knife too hard)
When I put on the white paint it made a mess. And the paint rubbed off to the actual helmet no idea why?
So I used the primer again and thats how I did the A
Step 5: Finished Product
Here is the finished product!!
Again the white paint gave me an issue and rubbed off
And I used a fan to help the paint dry quicker
