Interesting, I have painted about 6 helmets with that combo and never had an issue. I wonder if it has to do with differences in weather, elevation and humidity and such.I'd strongly advise against using Krylon Ocean Blue. After the several commissions I've done, the krylon is complete garbage now. You're gonna waste a lot of time trying to get a proper finish with it, so don't waste your money or time. I went ahead and used tamiya french blue. It went on like a dream on the first time
Maybe, maybe not. I've used the paint in 2 different regions and still had the same results. I went through 3 cans of the stuff before I decided I can't use this crap anymore. Back in 2006ish, when I first started painting Jango helmets, the paint was fine. Then Krylon decided to make their formulas more "environmentally friendly" and that's when the paint went to crap.Interesting, I have painted about 6 helmets with that combo and never had an issue.

The only issue I have ever had is moving too quick between layers. The paints will react with each other if you are not careful in between coats.
\I agree on the Rustoleum Royal Blue. The paint works enough to get through the process but I don't like using it. The nozzle clogs up on every can after one use no matter what I do to clean and take care of it.
The hardest part is finding replacement colors. The way the colors interact is just so critical.
If you have a Sutherlands, try there. That's where I found it. Took 4 hours to find, though.\
Yea. I can't even find the royal blue in spray can form anymore. I've looked. I can only find it in a can you'd use for painting w/ a brush.
Nevermind if you screw up the paint, with any rustolium, it's an epoxy based. So stripping it is like trying to sand through layers of sticky rubber
