    Helmet + Rattlecan + Paint Pen = ?

    I figured after seeing Demodude's helmet, I had to try it myself...

    I used regular spray paint and instead of sharpie, I used Pilot's "Gold Marker"...

    I didn't spend too much time sanding and perfecting it cause it's going to be used... but I still like it.

    You have some real artistic talent (and I don't throw that kind of compliment around too lightly ). VERY nice job!

    Wow that back is ridiculous. You should get some clear coat over that to protect the art, you will be bummed when you crash.

    How long did that take you?

    ddddude...AMAZING job!
    Nice color scheme, it flows really well

    As Demodude's bro speaking here, it may take him a sec to respond...he's busy raising family, but I can tell you right now he'd be very impressed...

    Nice work man!

    I did get some clearcoat, and put several coats of clear on it. There actually a lot of imperfections in it, but I realized I'll crash sometime, so I'm not too worried.

    It took two days to do.

    Nothing really in Annapolis. The best riding in the region is at Patapsco near BWI. But friends and I try to make it to places like Diablo when they're open.

    Ha, I think you got it all wrong... it's the AFA cadets I see playing in the mountains in the Springs all the time.

    Nice job getting in the acadey. My friend from high school got accepted a few years back.

    you know how you can smell spray paint even though you didn't spray your own face? that's the bits of propellant and stuff being washed out into the air around whatever your spraying. so, unless you mask off ALL the foam in the helmet, the propellant can still attack the foam.

    As long as you are well ventalted, the propellant becomes parts per million very fast. When you smell spray paint it's the paint you smell, not the propellant. At least it doesn't smell when I huff it..... Lol.
