Where did you "hear" that it was 60 bucks? Might just be your mom not wanting you working with dangerous chemicals (just saying ) It is only around $15-$20 per quart, depending on where you get it (those are just the prices I have seen poking around online) so you could potentially do it for cheap. Unfortunately I have read that most people use 2-3 cans for a full helmet, but I suppose 1 could do it if you use it sparingly.
Theres no way resin cost 60 dollars, a gallon of bondo resin cost 32 dollars, a small quart will cost 12-14 dollars and do half the armor, you will spend 100+ dollars so just have atleast 200 at your spending.

A. Huh? I can't help you if I can't understand you. Please use some level of reasonable grammar and punctuation. Not all of us use the same TXT lingo. Make it understandable if you want an answer... Use spell check if possible.
A helmet will take half of a $10 dollar can of resin. And you only need one package of fiberglass cloth:$6.00. The card stock is cheap, Krylon Spray adhesive (recommended to temporarily attach fiberglass cloth pieces to inside of helmet before resining. Makes it soooo much easier) is $4 a can. Use a plastic liter soda bottle bent w/ hair drier for visor (free). Bondo is $8 for a small (hard to find. bout the size of an apple) can, and you can use a single color of spray paint:$4.00. All the sandpaper you need is under 1 dollar Lets see...that came to 34 dollars. Thats cheaper than what you "thought" the resin was. Add 10 dollars for good luck and you have a helmet!
You mean do 2 layers on the inside...your not supposed to fiberglass the outside. It tough to shape that way. But a quart should do a helm and a good deal of armor. Oh and to learn how to make a good visor, go to the dual layer tutorial at the top of the pepakura armor forum. Use black silicone to attach to inside of helmet whether or not you do dual layer.
