That is amazing! You're the best! What do you use to make the paint stick to that slippery plastic?

Heather

I hope to take my first ride with him tomorrow. Absoultely love him!

Leanan

That is so cool!

Llannen

And to paint not only on a slippery surface but one with a rounded edge! Talent!

Rob

Cheers! It's just plain old acrylic paint, basically gambling that the helmet has an acrylic clearcoat rather than something 'traditional'. Seemed to adhere pretty good so long as it wasn't too watered down. Painting on a curved surface is basically madness, though.
