Day 1...

sanded it down, did 1 coat of primer, wet sand, primer again. Painted the helmet with Cherry black and the visor is an anodized gold. The Visor now is black with a bronze shine. Going to go grab some gold paint over paint tomorrow along with some brushes. Gonna do it a step at a time with the design details and then clear coat. Could this be the first Ibex themed helmet? :thumbsup:

thought about doing a custom paint job on my helmet (im not bad with a brush actually just takes a long time) but I havent gotten around to it yet. Would also be nice if I had a good airbrush, could make it look alot cooler but all I have are brushes and paints lol
I want to do something like this but I would need and airbrush for this: (first one at the top, would also take a crazy long time to paint that and do a good job of it)
