so i've started painting helmets for girls on my roller derby league (windy city rollers)
Here's a finished one. The girls name is Queen B, thus the crown.
I used glitter and a two part resin to make it look like a bowling ball.

Very good job.  I hadn't realized that you'd painted the helmet also.  Great job. Love the "crown".

I recognize this helmet!! I just saw Queen B wearing it at Derby Lite class last Saturday and it still looks great Smiley  I was wondering where she got it. Did you push the rhinestones into the resin before it dried or attach them with glue after?

I know this is an oooold post but I was wondering if you could talk about the process a bit - I am looking to paint a relatively intricate design on my helmet and want to make sure it lasts!

Did you use a primer or base coat? How was the glitter applied - loose glitter or glitter paint or did you incorporate the glitter with the resin? When you say 2 part resin, do you mean the kind that I can get at the craft store to make pour-mold jewelry? Did you brush it on or pour it on?
How has the helmet aged? Any major chipping or scraping?

Thanks! I have seen some beautiful helmets over the years and I really want to make one myself Smiley

I can't help you with the process but I know the woman who owns the helmet! She still wears it all the time and it still looks good! I've never noticed any chips or scrapes.
