    Mar 7, 2011, 6:17 PM - Possible helmet material? #1

    so i was in walmart looking for a trashcan to make my armor out of and i ran across a wrapping paper holder...it was a great size for me to cut the back plate of the armor out of and i got the belt and codpiece too...but the thing that grabbed my attention about it was the top they had for it...if you see the pics it has a decent shape to it... i was thinking a couple of cuts and a splice together and it would be an alright for a bucket or at least for the dome of a helmet....would def need a heat gun to change the shape a little...idk...maybe someone can use it for something so i thought i would upload a pic...

    These are the bukets I used to used on my early helmets , These are actual bukets with paint in them but you can buy them empty for using as bukets/ paint pots what ever , from hard were stores.
    I made 6 using these and they worked great , how ever I personally not a fan of doing the dome with the pep files method Ive always gone hard had or horse riding helmet cut in to 4 quaters and reattached in a nore Fett dome shape , it tends to get beter results (my opinion any way)
