Step 1: Step 1 Making Your Base

to make your helmet base you need to blow up a balloon to the size your head and cover it in paper mache 2 to 4 layers depending on how hard you want your helmet

Step 2: Step 2 Formation of the Helmet

once your base is dry you push a sewing needle through the back and pop the balloon inside once you have done this in the bottom/back you need to cut a hole to fit your head in .

Step 3: Step 3 Face of Iron Man

now you have made the hole you can start to make the mould come alive with "funky foam" this averages at about 49p-£100 tou will need four sheets of red and two of yellow first you start with making the detachable front i have drawn this template onto orange card for better visibility to stick this together i reccomend super glue or double sided tape.

Step 4: Step 4 the Helmet Side and Back

for your red helmet you must make each panel according to the picture on your red funky foam depending on the head size your panels will be bigger or smaller again i recommend you stick on with super glue or double sided tape . please note only use 3 sheets to save one for later details.

Step 5: Step 5 Detatchable or Not

if you want a detachable face or not dependends on wether you skip this step or not if so then you need to take the yellow foam face plate and temperelily stick it to you unplated front once stuck down you must draw in pencil a line that follows the edge once you have done this you must cut out along the pencil line slightly inwards so you can push it in and pull it out

Step 6: Step 6 Not Detatchable

if you do not want a detatchable face then this is your page
temperelaly stickdown your yellow foam face plate and draw around it with pencil but cut slightly inwards after this you must super glue the face into the hole.

Step 7: Step 7 Finishing Details

if you look on google images under iron man helmet look at close details and use your last piece of your foam to personalize your helmet,other colours look good for unique effects
