Hey all, I'm working on putting together a costume - I'm going to do the Stark Racing suit that Tony wears in Iron Man 2 during the race scene in Monaco. I already have the jacket and am working on finding pants that will work, but I have a few questions about the helmet.
I'm not about to drop $600+ dollars on a brand new Arai helmet, but am hoping to find a close enough helmet (that will fit my big head!) on craigslist locally here and then paint it up to match the design of the Stark Industries helmet.
My question is...what sort of paint should I use? I'm new to replica costuming and prop building and not really sure what to start with. Obviously a primer coat and then some layers of the colors to match...but what sort of paint?
Any help or advice would be gratefully appreciated and once I find a good base helmet I'll definitely post pics. Here's the look I'm going for, btw...I found this great pic on an auction site from Propworx.
