This is my restored Canadian WWII helmet that I just finished. I think it turned out nice. I posted several pics of the 'before' helmet and it's rather colorful coat.
I stripped it right down to bare metal. Applied a light coat of flat olive drab and let it dry for several days. I found a used cork and sanded it down to nothing. Put the media in a salt shaker. Applied a wet coat of paint and then immediately shook the sanded cork onto the wet surface. I let it dry for an hour then applied the final coat.
All that's left is to find an appropriate regimental flash for the sides.
