    For the love of....!!!! Let me be the first one to applaud you on these!!! Can you make those 1/1 pdf files? Those would speed up any newbie boba-builders greatly. I for one would love to try these on a decent bucket! By the way, Whatever happened to the word game? My modem broke so I was out of the 'net for a while, and now it's nowhere..

    im not sure im understanding your process here, are you applying decals instead of painting on the damage or using the decals as painting guides?

    this looks pretty cool. Will save the time of painting and sanding repeatedly to get the right look. A one try deal

    I've always thought about getting decals made to lay ontop of a helmet, but I'd rather have the real paint on it.

    That's genius,not my style as a painter but sheer genius for anyone wanting to do a helmet accurate and quick. At the very least the decals could be an awesome at hand painting guide or a temptation if your painting goes bad. Good job

    Very cool idea. Especially for cranking out a quick and dirty paint detail.

    So just to make sure i got it:
    1 Apply all "solid" base coats
    2 Apply decals
    3 Paint over decals
    4 Any final touch up of base coats

    And as for the type of helmet, I guess, do some paper printouts to adjust for sizes before printing the decals.

    Finally, is your painting technique just with a brush?

    Awesome
    I wish your technique was around about six months ago.

    Re: Templates to a new level - waterslides "UPDATED"

    OK I think I see. You use the lines on the decals as a guide and fill in using a brush or airbrush. Right?

    I'm in.... I am going to try my next helmet with your decals for the fun of it. The end result is amazing.

    Re: Templates to a new level - waterslides "UPDATED"

    Looks awesome dude but can you post a close up of where the decals end and the paint begins? I know you say you can't see any edge but from this far away its real hard to tell.

    If this works as well as it seems to work I'm SO trying this!

    Re: Templates to a new level - waterslides "UPDATED"

    would it be really lazy of me to just print out the decals and apply them and not even paint it? Other than the lack of shiny metal I'm not sure you'd be able to tell it's a decal.
