Like anything done for the first time, I made some mistakes. Chief among them not waiting long enough for the black base layer to completely cure. When I removed the masked off stripes it removed much of the black paint with it. Looking back, it was an ambitious undertaking for my first try.
For my second try I skipped the black bottom layer and instead applied the decals over the top of the white and orange. I figured this would look cleaner and would be easier to execute.
Other than that each step was done in exactly the same way.
The finished product (note the awesome NFL helmet bedsheets):
oh and by request, the white facemask compared to the black facemask
I still like the white better.
Thanks guys for your input and help. I really love the way it turned out and I'm thankful so many people were interested in this little project of mine.
