Starving Artist or Lame 9-5?
A little of both, I am in the Air Force a Father/Husband and a painter. The painting/building is sort of a hobby that I do to let me build my own costume and improve my craft. Its also lead to some pretty cool things, like working with Gino at EFX on their Fett helmet, and other TDH members on the Daniel Logan Project.
How long does it take you to paint a helmet?
Painting a helmet takes about 40-50 hours in total…. there are a lot of layers which makes it take weeks. I normally take about 2 months or so with my real job and family taking up my time.
Do you paint other types of props?
I paint anything and everything, I’m currently wrapping up a full set of armor gaunts jetpack and helmet for a TDH member now.
