The helmets were all made in a similar manner. I started with the brim and shaping it to a pointed or sharp ridge front and back. This was let to cure then the dome was sculpted. Again, allowed to cure then the crest formed. Once cured, some carving were needed to give it a sharper edge. ALL helmets were built at the same time and checked for uniformity. Lastly, the rivets were added with Duro balls. These were made by tediously rolling between the fingers then allowed to cure. Each was fixed to the helm with slow drying super glue. The slow drying glue allowed me to move the rivet about to get a somewhat even space between each.
