    sand, primer and paint. make sure the nozzle is facing the helmet. paint lightly, several coats.

    use the search feature for more detail

    What he said. make sure the paints are compatible and that the temperature is right for the paint (not to humid). Light coats work best too.

    Good luck, Pal!

    Depends on what style helmet your doing. I did ROTJ and used spray paints that Lynn posted on here. Search for helmet paint and you will find the list.

    Good Luck!

    A while back RS spent a good deal of time comprising a list of colors and technique for painting an ESB helmet. I have found it to be very comprehensive and am using it for painting my ESB helmet. Many have used the same technique and have had fantastic results.
