For Racers, By Racers
When Ken approached me to paint his helmet he was fairly flexible in terms of what he wanted and gave me creative license on much of the design. One thing he asked was if we could somehow incorporate something subtle that would highlight his work in metal detailing & fabrication.
What began as a fairly straightforward project evolved into a fairly complex helmet with a lot of detail work (240 individually airbrushed “diamond plates”!). All of the colors used were metallic, two stage “kandy” or neon…all of which can be challenging to work with. Ken summed up his thoughts after he arrived home with the helmet: “Out of the park, Jerrett, out of the park."
