    Default Started painting helmets and tins again

    Some of you saw the first helmet I had ever painted earlier this summer here: http://www.chopcult.com/forum/showth...t=deadseagulls (NSFW, there is a dick).

    well after getting some other shit sorted I've been painting a bit again and thought I'd share my progress as I get more familiar with the medium.

    here is my first helmet along with one I did for a girl who has a sporty.


    More of the bird helmet.






    Then I started on another helmet. This one isn't done yet, but here's some progress on it.



    Didn't sand off the daytona logo on this one as I dig the helmet brand and figured I'd see how it looked. Not sure how I feel about it.



    Bonneville Cutthroat Trout (little shoutout to Utah)





    A Brooke Trout on the other side.





    Also painting this frisco sporty tank for the owner of the bird helmet, doesn't have clear coat yet, but I got some good ideas for artwork on it, so i'll update this thread as the painting on all of this stuff progresses.





    After I wrap up these projects I have someone sending me a helmet from NYC to paint. They want a full mural on it. It's a Biltwell Gringo. Should be fun.

    Bonus picture of getting drunk with my dogs by my stove.

    The dude in the elk carcass can be seen in my first thread here http://www.chopcult.com/forum/showth...t=deadseagulls

    I have progress shots in that thread and close ups of the art.

    House of Kolor for the airbrush stuff, the fades and pearls and whatnot. and 1shot sign enamels for the hand brush work.

    You have some awesome skills. The chickadee, though not my style is absolutely stunning!

    Thanks man! the first sketch I drew for her was a redwinged black bird in a much more dynamic pose, but she said it looked too aggressive and wanted a 'more cute' bird. So I went with that little guy... and filled his ribcage with roses.

    HOK for the airbrush stuff, and oneshot for the enamels. I have some other enamels that I use in the winter as the handle better in the cold than oneshot, but I forget the brand.

    What clear you spraying over the oneshot? Or did you use HOK for the stuff you cleared?

    I'm using Kustom Shop 2k urethane clear. Seemed better than the one time I tried the HOK stuff, and at the time of bulk purchasing was quite a bit cheaper. It's ready to polish in about 6-8 hours and fully hardened in 24. Keep in mind, i'm in utah and i don't have to reduce anything as 2.1 VOC is legal here, so I can't comment on other types or reductions of clear within the HOK or kustom shop line.

    So far I haven't had to add any hardeners to the enamels, as I'm using acrylic lacquer thinner for thinning and that makes the paint pretty hot and dries hard, quick.
    I'm pretty new at all this, but no issues yet with existing helmets.

    I dig the bird, it all looks great but I think that is the sharpest one. You did a great job on the lettering for all of it though.

    Thanks fellah, I'm doing a little bit more on the trout helmet, and then diving into that pearl sporty tank which is going to be a completely different style. Trying to work outside of my comfort zone for a while to encourage growth.
    I'll keep posting shit to this thread as I go along.
