    Jango helmet paint question

    I recently received an asok Jango helmet and will start working on it tomorrow. However, I'm not sure which colors or brands of spray cans would be good for a canon Jango helmet. Clearly there are 2 shades of blue that I need. Could anyone help me out? I live in the US. I can't airbrush as I don't have an airbrush nor can I afford a decent one at the moment.

    For the rustoleum royal blue, is that the high performance or regular gloss? Also, I can't seem to find it in stores. Is there a substitute spray paint that works similarly?

    Re: Jango helmet paint question

    The rustoleum is just the regular old gloss spray paint. I can usually find it at Walmart or any other place that sells the brand. The only bad part is that the style of spray nozzle on the royal blue is horrible and it clogs at a ridiculous rate. I would change colors with caution. One of the biggest issues with Jango's helmet is not each color but how the two colors work off of each other. If you change one you may have to change the other.

    Remember that placing colors next to each other greatly affects the appearance of each color.
