Painting one's helmet

Postby ben » Sun Jul 15, 2007 2:56 pm

Erm, well, I have recently aquired from a friend a kettle hat, I wanted to paint said kettle hat, as I have seen many nicely painted helmets, and have helmet envy.

What paint/finish should I use for a fairly suitable finish for war of the roses period style?

thanks
Ben
