It can be left for years before any further work is done, and should last for a very long time.

I continued adding thin layers of filler and sanding back. Reply 1 year ago. I wuld like to receive the pages for print them oout of predator helmets. One suggestion, instead of the LEDs , the dollar store has mini red laser pointers that would be perfect for that.
I began with the crown and worked my way downwards carefully cutting out the sections and gluing them together with general purpose glue. The inside will need fitting out with sponge and a strap, then a set of hair 'falls' will need to be made up, but essentially that's it.
That glossy finish and the touch of color of the helmet I have realized it applying a base of paint in spray of matte black color and I have been applying another metallic gray spray, from a great distance to try to apply a blur between both colors.
To avoid it, 2 cross-shaped sticks on the inside of the helmet, we give a layer of resin on the outside and wait for it to dry. Did you make this project? I added some hard sponge to the lower right jowl, then sanded this back to the general shape. I simply made up the insert, then painted it and glued it into place. Once the part to be treated is dry, we proceed to its smoothening.
We let it dry and, finally, we will give that touch of wear and tear. I generally use a 1" soft blusher brush for this work. I cut a small length of PVC pipe at an angle to fit the helmet and form the laser sight. Once I was satisfied with revised sponge profile I covered it with filler and sanded it back smooth.
Once these have set they will be strong enough to support further sculpting and sanding.
By marshon Marshon Follow. For a metallic finish I generally start with a black undercoat, here I have used artists acrylic on the corrected section. Hot melt glues was then run into the gap forming a good strong seal and bond. To extend it, we can use a rubber spatula and leave it as smooth as possible. There is the option to buy it with fiberglass included.
The inside of the eye slits did not have enough area of flat edge for the visor plastic to hold well. I then coated the foam in three layers of latex.
I will need to make a set of 'falls' for the model which will then hide her ears and make the whole thing look more like the original.
