I was told I had to get rid of a ton of little triangles and old 1-A2C surfacing rods in the welding shop. I only had a few hours so I decided to make a halloween mask with them.

I was envisioning some kind of viking god. The top is a mash up of horns and a scorpion body. It has primer on it now so it is a bit tough to see some of the detail. I took some heat to it to create kind of a claw looking scar across the face and part of one of the horns/scorpion claws is hacked off. I had fun making it and although I am not artistic at all I am going to try to slap some modeling paint or something on it to make it look cool. I don't know how much it weighs but the answer is a lot. When I am done with it I think I will put velcro on the inside and put ACH pads in it.

anyway hope you enjoy.

top view not a lot to see here


scorpion tail. It kind of wraps around to the side of the helmet it also kind of reminded me of vertebrae

I have put it on it is just uncomfortable and heavy. I am definitely not going to wear it for any extended amount of time though. If I could wear a helmet with nods for so long I can at least try this out.

I wish I had artistic ability in terms of painting. I probably should have not thrown primer on it looked pretty mean when it was all raw.

Very cool.

USE THE FOCUS
Link Posted: 10/24/2013 4:49:52 PM EST
focus? I was on my potato phone. I could either snap some pictures quick with that or I gotten nothing. If I can make something of the paints I will break out the good camera.

Again Im not an artist even photography eludes me.

I could just sand blast the primer off of it. Might be a good idea.

well in that case you are likely correct.

I think painting it is a dream I just don't think I would be talented enough to do a decent job.

If I was homosexual I say suck my dick but I'm not. But you can wear my ass as a hat if you like for Halloween.

I touched my first welder about a month and a half ago. Remember the circumstances please I was handed a bunch of triangles and a surfacing rod I was not familiar with and told to work with it. I was just having some fun with limited time and figured some one else might enjoy it.
