So, I've been doing all this striping on just about anything I can get my hands on, but hadn't done anything to make my own helmet look all fancy. Mostly because it's rare that I'm not actually using it. So, I finally got around to doing something with my helmet. I had every intention of taking some cool step by step pictures, and I started off OK. I got some pics right after I did the leafing, then I got caught up in working on it and forgot to take any more pictures.
Here's the pics from right after doing the leaf- I used a Carousel Blue Leaf- I think that Variegated Red would have worked better on the green helmet, but since I hadn't tried the Carousel Blue yet, that's what I used.
I then added a thick outline of Medium Green around all the leafing, and did some striping using Medium Green, Emerald Green, and Imitation Gold. Just in case anyone is interested, I used a Mack 00, Kafka 1 and Kafka 3 for my brushes.
I'm pretty damn happy with the way it turned out.
