Ok i see and then i use a paint brush to do the details or do i use masking tape and an air brush ?It's easy crimson! Just print out the templates, cut them out and use graphite transfer paper to bring the stencil to your helmet
so did you cut out the stencil and use the holes to put down the masking fluid ?I am working on a esb now. In the picture you can see the cut out stencil and the area already masked (masking fluid).
I mainly use airbrush and topical painting for very small details
Painting a helmet with the use of stencils is easy, but it takes a lot of patience if you want to get every detail

I have read others with the same issue as i too have ordered a RS prop master helemt, so have been preparing myself for it.I seem to be having some trouble with sizing, I have a rspropmasters bucket and either the stencils or too big or too small. Any suggestions?
I picked up 2 sheets of 2mm grey cardboard from myocal art supply store.What thickness cardboard do people use? I see 2mm mentioned on one of the links for the files but it looks like all cardboard is sold using the 'pt' scale for the most part.
I was looking on Amazon and purchased some .08" chipboard.
