If you mean without using resin and fiberglass, yes you could, it will make it somewhat stonger. Fiberglass is worth the time and money though.

If you mean doing it before applying resin and fiberglass you would be wasting your time 110lb is stong enough to handle the resin and fiberglass.

If you want a glob of paper when resining it, then use printing paper, if you want a quality helmet, use cardstock.

Yeah, regular computer paper is useless. My friend tried that and ... well ... it looks nothing like a master chief helmet.

I first printed out everything on computer paper, and redid it all on cardstock when i felt how flimsy it was.


Believe me, even if you have to wait a week for cardstock, its' worth it.

Believe me, doing that will take many more hours. Plus, cardboard being thicker, it wont bend as well on those tiny tabs and folds, cardstock is solid, strong, and think, go with cardstock.
