    You want to make a form from a helmet and then copy it in fiberglass? Hmmm that might not be a good idea. Depending on Who's helmet it is, and what your going to do with it.

    Agreed, If your talking about casting something you have sculpted yourself then thats ok, but making copies of anyone elses work is not a good idea at all..

    What type of helmet is this? IS it a plastic version from Don Post or Rubies? IF so Casting it in glass is fine, but those helmets are far......... from 1:1 scale. You are better off buying one from a skilled artisan here than to venture into something that deep just to get a helmet.
