 First helmet! and my version of the production process

hello everyone! I also decided to post some photos of my first helmet, which I made during the Christmas holidays. Due to the fact that I do not have the ability to print on a 3d printer (I do not have a printer), I made a helmet using a new technology for myself-weaving a frame of copper wire and strengthening it with a bandage, impregnating it with epoxy resin. The final irregularities were cleaned with putty. Although I had experience in the production of armor (I am engaged in historical reenactors), such experience was new to me, so the helmet turned out to be strong, but unsightly... So I think I'll make myself a new helmet soon. In my insta, I talked in detail about the production process. In fact, a very exciting process!

A fascinating way to go about a resin build ner vod!  Definitely a good outcome for a first attempt  :)  :boba:

Thanks! Now in the process of two more helmets, for my close friends, I'm honing the technology, if I can say so. The second came out frankly unsuccessful, I don't even want to show it, to be honest, but the third and the frame of the fourth - it's quite nothing, as it seems to me
a some photos of the process -
pasting the frame with paper pulp to align the silhouette:

the fourth helmet, the girl wanted a helmet like Sabin's:
