    Feb 4, 2014, 7:46 PM - ROTJ SNOWBOARD HELMET!? YEAHHHHHHHH! #1

    I recently went snowboarding and decided I needed to paint my snowboard helmet in a ROTJ scheme...
    I started with the red as a reference point for the upper and lower pieces.

    I finished up the Kill stripes, Key Slots, weathering and Scratches!
    I didn't use a silver coat or primer as a base. I Sanded with 400 grit to give the paint a little something to bite on.
    Those are "Back Flip Stripes" ;-)



    And The Dent... I'm not a master of the brush arts. Hopefully it's enough skill to convey a "Dent" and convince other Fellow Star Wars Enthusiasts on the Mountain!


    I'd like to mention a little weathering tip-
    My Nylon airbrush cleaning brush- It's coarse... Very Coarse... I glanced over at it while painting the silver scratches on with a tiny brush... It clicked: "Hey, Dummie, If you dab the bristles in the silver, and give it a light brushing on the helmet, it'll look like scratches!"
    And this is my new weathering apparatus time saver:

    Looks good. I saw a R2D2 production helmet a while back and always wanted to get one..this is way better.

    is that a Bern?

    Giro. I only bought the helmet to mount my GoPro- I never used a helmet (Even though I'm in the terrain park the whole time and the Half pipe!) I actually love. It's comfortable as hell... and ironically enough, I never really hit my head too hard (As if "too" isn't hard enough to go out and buy a helmet!)
    But the second time I wore this thing, I whopped my head on an icy half pipe and knocked off the part that secures the goggles on the back... Fun fact! -First time using GoPro and First time really messing around with Adobe Premier Killington Banana - YouTube
