I've been helping a friend recently, we built a sign for a local business and I did the painting of it. It has been quite an experience to do this project. First of all: that thing weigh in at around 60 pound (a bit heavier than a helmet!!) so it was hard to move around the shop. Second thing it was my first time painting particle wood. We had to use products I do not normally use on helmets. It was fun though and I will post photos of the finished thing soon.
