Custom Painted Helmet

  • Livy Nelson

I had been wanting to paint my bike helmet since arriving in Vietnam but wanted to paint it with enamel paint. After about a year of trying to source this paint in various colours lockdown hit. With no luck on the enamel front and with so much time on my hand I decided to just get on with it! After marking out and lightly sanding I went ahead with acrylic paint sealed with a varnish. Vietnam's main mode of transport are bikes of varying kinds, mainly motorbikes and scooters. Since posting this finished helmet I have had many requests to do helmet designs and feel very fortunate to be in a country where there is a high demand for custom helmets!
