Think it'd be possible to make this helmet out of it? It's a very smooth model so I kinda wonder if it would work all that well but from your examples it looks like it might with some work.

Here is the helmet: http://photobucket.com/image/zero/Em.../Zero.png?o=18

Do you think I can use this method to make a helmet for Kamen Rider / Power Ranger?
Like after making the base from cardboard, putting thin layer of clay and put acrylic paint over them?
I'll wait for your reply

I don't see why you can't make a helmet like that using this method. ^_^

...However the clay eludes me a little - Why clay in particular? Have you considered Bondo? - And the acrylic may peel/flake off if the helm is knocked about a little. It's a paint that makes a 'skin layer' rather than 'coat' the object in question, which enamel paint would do. Acrylic, although thinner and not as strong, isn't that different to Liquid Latex which is known as a 'second skin' product anyway. This is just speculation though, and it mainly depends on how many times you would paint the helmet, how thick it would be, if it would be knocked around a lot, etc.

If you can, maybe a mock-test with a bit of clay made into a pancake and slightly rounded before painting would satisfy this possible problem?

Great tutorial, But I was wondering what was the best way to apply the bondo that you use. I have tried a couple of different ways but it always comes out clumped and I have to sand it forever.

Why couldn't I have found this earlier?!?! T_T it would have saved me lots of money on my other two trys on Dark Soldier's helmet. This sounds like a wonderful tutorial, so I'm going to try it and hopefully it works for what I;m trying to do...
Thanks so much!

Wonderful tutorial!!!

I am already past the last step before paint: the tricky bondo x.<

My diclonious helmet is almost complete, and the unveiling will be at mid-south in a few days.

Now I'm waiting for the bondo to dry so I can start sanding and painting

I'm so excited to dress up as lucy and parade around in revealing bandages all macabre like without speaking.
