I have appreciated everyone's help at this site.
I am about to start a new helmet and I thought I would ask this question:
I have templates for a new helmet ready. I cut them out of nice paper stock. Last time I traced them onto framers mat board. I was pretty happy with the results although I felt there were places that the mat board separated a bit and edges were a bit dodgy.
What other materials do you folks like to use besides mat board? Anyone tried anything else they are happy with?
I also tried once to actually glue the cut out templates onto the board and then cut them out (this lets me benefit from the graphics on the template.) I found this to be terrible over time - the paper ripped off or bubbled in places etc.
I would like to try sintra one day but... I don't think my skill are there yet.
I would love to hear some opinions about what material they like best.
Thanks again for a great site.
