question about resin and fiber glass!

hello all!
newbie costume maker here
i've been toying with the idea of doing a cosplay of the Rocketeer. and ive been trying to think of how to make the helmet:

of the ones that i believe im capable of making ive seen a motorcycle helmet spray painted gold, ive seen one made of something called celluclay (i believe it's like paper mache?), and one of resin and fiber glass on instructables. the one on instructables looks the best in my opinion but ive never worked with resin or fiber glass before

so my question would be how workable are these materials for someone who has never used them?? any hints or tips?? any advice is appreciated!!
thanks
