Post Helmut Artwork 
 
I thought it'd be cool to see what artwork anyone's done or had done on their helmuts. Feel free to throw done pics up here

I was bored and started to play around with my new skid lid. I'm no real artist and I've never painted a helmt or for that matter anything before. But I had an idea and decided to have a go.

As I've mentioned before I like my rat rods and the rockabilly culture, so that's where the lucky 13 idea came from. I'm going to fill in between the saw blade and around the 13 with skulls, but they will be done in the same black as te saw blade. I want a full look but subtle, I will put a buffer gap between skulls and the 13 and saw blade so it doesn't get too confusing

I need to go back over it particular the white, but I like a bit of a rough finish look. Any way enough talk, here it is so far

Thanks mate! Once the black on black skulls are in I will be happy with it.

 Apparently 13's not so lucky no, good thing I don't believe in luck.

Look'n cool Squid ..

I was told awhile ago by a proffessinal painter that painting ya helmet could make it "illegal" .. as certain paint can "affect" the shell.
Don't know if this bullshit .. but I know some paint does "melt" some resin & plastics.

Correct me if I'm wrong Musashi.

Thanks Rxes! I believe that could be true though I'm picture I would of have to of taken the original black paint off and paint over the resin itself?

Cheers crowy!

My calibre? It's just a number and a saw blade in no great detail   so I can hardly count my work as anything above average compared to some of the crazy airbrushing out there. But cheers for the compliment!

1+ with Rxes, that cracked me up. Even better that you left them on there, must get a few laughs around the place

hay guys,,, its an age old argument that everyone seems to know the answer,,,  maybe the lids from days gone by had a bit of trouble, but the
the stuff they make em outta these days stands the test, most lids are made of high impact plastics, fibreglass or carbon fibre blends, the more expensive the lid the better it is usually made,,,                                                                                                                                                                                                                                              u gotta remember that helmets are painted from the factory anyway, most are done in two pack
paints the same stuff thats used on ya cars and muderbikes, dont rip the australian standard sticker off though, this makes it an unknown helmet which confuses
the fuzz even more,, thats when the trouble starts,,,,
