Hi. I am taking a university painting class and am stumped for my current assignment so I am asking for ideas. The assignement is to take an object and paint it ..to somehow change its properties. I chose an old helmet and my prof said to think of a metaphor and paint that. Well i cant think of anything. his example was to paint blisters on a shoe...does anyone have any ideas?

i so don't get the blisters on a shoe thing, but the metaphor that came to mind when i thought about a helmet was an oyster with a pearl inside, life tough outside importance inside... don't know but maybe that'll inspire you to something better
