I was wondering if anyone has any tips on the application of the "black pastel powder". I am going topical like the tutorial until I get to the back of the helmet. So I am wondering if dullcoteing after the main colors are on is before I use pastel on the kill stripes (red) and over the whole bucket (black).
Pic 4: The kill stripes been added. They were masked with air brush film and liquid latex. The color used was "Polly scale UP Armor yellow". Then the entire helmet was dusted with black pastel powder to make the colors "deeper". Some prefer washes but I've always loved to work with pastel. The kill stripes was also dusted with red pastel powder and they will receive a second dusting later on.
