Rust Painted Stormtrooper Helmet

Rust Painted Stormtrooper Helmet

These vinyl Star Wars Stormtrooper helmets look worn and old with a DIY rust paint technique.

Hello Everyone!

Welcome back! I have missed you guys! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday.

2017 is going to be amazing with all these new project I have for you!

The first is this rust pained Stormtrooper helmet. With the passing of Carrie Fisher I thought I needed to do a Star Wars inspired craft.

This time I did the rust painting a little differently than when I painted the Rust Angel. You can revisit that post here: Rust Angel

Materials:

  • Stormtrooper Vinyl Helmet- You can find it here: Helmet
  • Rust paints. I used some cheap teal colored acrylic paint I had on hand, some Folk Art rust paints, and Prima Marketing rust paste. You can find the Rust past here: Rust Paste
  • Brushes and spray sealer and black gesso

Instructions:

The first step is to paint a coat of Black Gesso. This is the primer and it will make it easier for the paint to adhere to the vinyl.

Then I added some teal paint I had in my stash. Add this in a random fashion, and not all over.

Then I added the yellow from the Prima Marketing rust paste paint pallet. Just a bit, to make it random.

Then I added the middle color of the Prima Marketing rust paste. Keep it random. It looks a little funky at the is point, but it gets so much better when you add the darker coats, believe me, lol.

 

Then I added the darkest of the Prima Marketing colors. I liked it, but it needed more, so I added some of the Folk Art rust paint that I used for the Angel. I did like how the Prima Marketing

Make sure you can still see the other colors peaking though making it look natural, like it has been left out in the forest for a long time.

When you are happy with your rust painting spray it all with a sealer to keep the texture on the helmet.

 

Such a fun project! I have a few more things to show you this year that are all rusty and old looking! I can’t wait!

DIY Star Wars No Sew Tablet Cover

Hello Everyone!

Have you ever wandered around a fabric store and see some fabric that just jumps out at you and demands that you buy it? No, is that just me?

Well that is what happened with this Star Wars fabric, it demanded to go home with me and to be made into something awesome. I think I did the fabric justice by making a no sew tablet cover.

Materials:

~ Fabric I used this awesome Darth Vader fabric for the outside and I used sweatshirt fabric for the inside to help protect my tablet and provide a little cushion

~ Ribbon

~ Hot Glue and Velcro

Instructions:

~ I laid out the 2 fabrics with wrong sides together and cut out how much I needed. There wasn’t any measuring just make sure you have a little room on the sides and enough on the length to create a flap. I left a little extra on the side (but not too much) so I had somewhere to put my stylus pen.DIY Star Wars No Sew Tablet Cover

~ Hot glue the fabric together around the edges. I did a little at a time and used a popsicle stick to help smooth out the edges with out burning my fingers.

~Once you have the edges glued then fold up the fabric, make sure you have your tablet to measure what you want the pocket to end. Then glue the edges together.

~ Then hot glue ribbon around the edges. My ribbon was not wide enough to wrap around the edge of the fabric so I glue some on the front and the back of the fabric. Glue ribbon every where that you see a raw edge.

~ Then glue on Velcro to the flap to close your cover and you are done.

I am in love with the fabric, I think I need to go back and get more to make a circle skirt.

In a upcoming post I will show you how to make a sew version of a tablet cover.
