Painting a helmet is a fun way to be unique with a sense of style for safety gear. Before you start to painting your helmet, let's make sure you have the correct paints, materials and tools to safely use on your helmet.
All solvents and paints may not be good to use it can corrode the material your helmet is made of,making it less effective for protecting your head.
I will advised you the type of paint is safe, tape to cover the parts of your helmet stencils and sketches of your design, prep area and more. This is truly easy if you take your time and have fun.

Let each layer of paint dry before applying the next one so that every layer can properly bond to the surface of your helmet. This will advoid the paint from peeling.
