|Sawako Furuno Helmet|
|Rawwr! My Tiger Helmet|
The hardest part was finding the right helmet with a little brim. After trolling the internet I found great match in the GIRO Surface helmet. After lots of searching on Cyber Monday I was able to snag it for $22, a steal. Everything after that was easy.
-Orange spray paint
-Blue painter's tape
-Print out of tiger stripe pattern
1. I printed out an image of a tiger stripe pattern for a visual reference then using painter's tape started marking out the stripes on the helmet. I tore of the both long edges of the tape for all my stripes so that the stripes would be rough edged.
3. In a well ventilated area spray the helmet with white primer, make sure to cover thoroughly. Let dry.
4. Spray the helmet with the orange paint. Let dry. Do second coat.
5. Spray with clear sealant. Let dry.
6. Carefully remove tape.
|Ignore the black spot. I have no idea what that is.|
P.S. Try different animal prints. I'm tempted to try the original leopard print helmet.
