i barely have any exp with fiberglass either, but ive been a cardboard artist for awhile and i use to use poster paper to cover it.
i bought resin and fiberglass the other week, and my helmet is ready to be resined, but im so lazy mannn and thinking about having to sand it turns me away too, plus armor that ive done. but i will do it
i resin the the whole helmet, except the ear peice, and used clothe on the top so far. no sanding yet
blahg it looks so messy now, i wished i didnt pick up that crappy paint and sprayed it
before- looks better
resin and some fiberglass
sorry the ear peice wasnt glued on so i held a siscor up to it to hold it in place
airsoft test, 10 ft, 300 fps
no visable damage
tommorow i will fiberglass the whole thing and then use bondo body filler to cover up the visable cardboard, especially on the sides, you know when you cut carboard and it has that texture on the sides?
anyone know any good methods of coating resin? and is there any way of saving the paint brush?
