Sinny's 1st Helmet WIP (Pic Heavy)
« on: Jun 01, 2014, 08:08 AM »
Hi All, thought i'd start a WIP for my lid, its a Death Watch lid that i bought from Saz (legend)

So, i've been throwing around colour schemes for ages but i've decided to go with this...


here comes the pic heavy part...Primer

then a coating of Silver...

After the silver and a coat of Masking fluid a coat of dark grey false primer is added...

and the first coating of white and more masking fluid...




Then a coating of black and even more masking fluid...

then its ready for a coating of orange and yes you've guessed it more masking fluid...





and the final weathering... removing the masking fluid using the softer side of velcro (hoops)

Indeed, wanted the helmet to look as if it has history to it,  looking at it you can see it tells a story of battles past.

now do you think it needs a bit of black washing next or are you gonna leave it battered but clean?

Progress Update: Helmet has had a dark wash to bring out the detail and make it a bit grubby...

How long did you wait before removing the masking fluid on each layer?

It was about and hour if my kit was anything to go by, you gotta allow the paint to cure first or you rip up the fresh still wet paint removing it
