Like I promised here are some WIP pictures and a video how I colored the helmet for Maleficent. The steps how I built it, did I uploaded already a few posts earlier. But if you have any questions about my crafting process, feel free to ask. I'm happy if I can help. 😊
1. After I finished the whole helmet I used wood glue as a primer. The pearly Worbla from @cast4art is perfect for this work, because I needed just 2 layers. Actually I couldn't make more layers, because otherwise the glue would have filled the grooves.
2. I used black for the helmet part und a very dark grey (with a little bit brown and green) for the horns as a ground color.
3. I started with the horns to add more colors. I used a brush to put some brown all over the horn. Afterwards I used a sponge to dap some grey and brown on it. At the end I used just a little bit black and white to get a more realistic look.
4. For the helmet I mixed brown, yellow and white and colored some parts with it. I didn't want sharp edges. I created a smooth blending to the black ground color.
5. I used my new favorite color Rub n Buff. Oh my god, I really love this stuff. The effect is awesome. I used more Rub n Buff on the brown parts and created also a smooth blending.
6. Finally I sealed everything. The horns with got a matt varnish and the helmet a shiny one. I like it that the colors got very strong with the varnish.
I'm super happy with the final result. Now I'm going to do the dress. 😊
