This job is a small little bit challenging and also it does take a couple of days bereason you really need to apply at least three coats of paper mache permitting time to dry between coats. I permitted it to sit overnight and also dry before I used the following coat. This helmet is an amazing little bit piece of Middle ages armor and it does look pretty excellent. I painted mine with spray paint in both gold and also black. The video tutorial of this task is situated near the bottom of this page.
This medieval helmet is created of three templates that I have actually for you to downpack. They are in this Microsoft Word document: The Spartan Helmet You downfill this package (4 pages) print it up then you have the right to use the templates to reduced out the cereal box cardboard.

Next off put a balloon in the middle. Your head is not a perfect sphere so put the balloon through the blow up nozzle towards the back of the helmet and also wrap some tape around the totality point so it squashes the helmet a bit and also makes it a little narrower from side to side.
