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.

lets' get started
1. Art sketch or picture of what you placing on the helmet, in this sketch you should have color placement so you know inhead of time instead of freestyling it where everything should go.
2. Clean your helmet with a mixture of mild detergent and water. Removing dirt and grease from your helmet is essential if you want the paint you apply to stick to its surface if its a old helmet, if New use a dry cloth and wipe clean.
3. Sanding is nexts, the painted surface including logos or ridges, painted design or glossy finish must be removed if any on the helmet. 
  • If you’re going to buy or recieve a helmet to paint, make sure to go with a plain white or black matte halemts would be great.

4. Use masking tape & plactic to shield the inside of the helmet parts from the paint. Cover all vents & logo,You can use painter tape but i use masking tape it hold better when painting or spraying.

5. Prime your helmet with Gesso at least 2 thin coats give it time to dry between coverage 1st before adding any type of paints, this helps the paint and cans ahered to the helmet with out cracking peeling or fading. 

6. Paints with water-based acrylic paints and brushes and professional spray paint motana gold 94's if you need to go cheap use rustos. These water-based paints are safe to use on helmets. 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.

7. Last but not lease clear coat to protect the paint on your helmet apply 3 - 4 coats let dry for 1hour for each coat, this will avoid excessive stickeness.

Now you done easy peesey ....
