No money for an LS2, not much money to spend, lots of time to spend, why not screw up my helmet????
Here comes another DIY from me
Wanted something striking. Was planning a collage with skulls, and of course my all time favorite classic racing stripes. ideas evolved ending up in what you people seeing now.
Vinyling over curves is pretty tough and risky job and adding designs rather tougher, so came up with the idea, why can't I shade with pencil.
Painted my black Lid, matt white, masked the design, started shading with the big tipped 10B pencil, but unsatisfactory result. here comes the mighty 2B pencil 0.5 mm. Lots of patience, and its done. Done a simple clear coat, unmasked, cleaned the white part and thoroughly clear coated the helmet. Red skull with color pencil
Repainted umpteen times, something goes wrong every time, screwing me up. I used a can of matt black to paint 5 rims whereas it took 2 cans matt white to paint my poor helmet.
Result, guaranteed admiration.
Hope all like this.
