    Hey there,

    I have a New Order Stormtrooper cast I purchased. I need to do some work on it like sanding and general cosmetic work on it. One thing I need to do is cut out the eyeholes on the helmet so I can stick the visor on it and see. But have no idea how I can cut out these eye holes. Can someone help me with any advice of what I need and how to cut them out? Follow up, what's the best gloss paint to use to give it a nice shiny look?

    Thank you so much!

    -John-

    Hey there,

    I use a Proxxon rotary tool with diamond cutting wheel to remove visor sections from resin helmets I work with.

    I believe ANOVOS recommended Rustoleum 2x Ultra Gloss White to match their helmets for Celebration, but personally getting it professionally done with auto paint will probably give you the best look.
