Here's an updated shot of the helmet progress from last night. First, I'd started hand painting the Firebirds with a small bottle of paint I picked up at a local discount store. After painting both birds, it was obvious to me the color was off from the mohawk. So, I grabbed the spray paint I used on the mohawk and sprayed it into a lid, using it to brush onto the firebirds. Perfect match! I don't have the steady hand I used to have and had a bit of problem keeping the fine detail lines straight. I also wasn't real happy with the front of the helmet (black and yellow area) until I looked at the screen used shot. I then realized the actual helmet had been hand painted as well and didn't look much neater than what I was doing. I'm going to take my time and try not to make it look to hand painted, but by the time I dirty it up and add all the weathering and scratches, carbon scoring and coatings, it should be less obvious.
