I've never heard of anyone painting their suits with a brush before.
My first helmet was painted with a brush. I had not yet heard of this wonderful website and was pretty much working on it from clips of the film alone. It turned out okay, but my newest is much better, and I did it all with rattle cans.

Hey guys, I just received my BM bucket last week(after years of waiting to have the money) and spent the weekend trying to size the templates correctly for it. For the life of me I just could not seem to get it right, here are the steps that I would follow when printing from Adobe.
1. Page Scaling set to fit to printable area
2. Next go to printer properties and then use the zoom feature to either increase or decrease the size, starting at 100% and working from there.
If anyone could lend a hand or let me know if I am doing this wrong I would greatly appreciate it.

Hi
instead of printing out the templates have you thought of sizing the template on your screen to the size of your helmet. Trace the templates directly off your screen using some tracing paper.
The process is a little longer but it a sure fire way of getting it correct straight away.
Hope this helps
