I'm starting all that weird SE gunk all over the left side of the dome. I do this in a number of passes with different colors. This is the black pass. I'll be doing additional passes with the pale blue gray, and some white.
I'm sure that painting a lineage helmet with all the fine details is more complicated than painting a clean helmet, because you have to perfectly line up all the major scratches, while on a clean helmet you have some artistic freedom. I hope I can update my stencils in the near future to better match the original scratches.
