wanted to do it with Krylon after what i've seen but there wasn't any at the particular store so i purchased the rust-oleum stuff just dark green, light olive, and khaki using dark green as the base, i didn't know exactly what to do so i gave it a light sanding with 220 and rinsed it off before painting it and just went with the first way it seemed right to go i used dark green as the base with a secondary of khaki and what i thought was using light olive as the mixer
the view from the left side and the top gives the mask the most justice, the other views don't show the khaki and the dark green enough

Awesome paintjob, would look great on other gear.
Is that a soft or hard shell? Have you shot it to see how the paint holds up?

Looks sweet. Yeah the best way to test it is to shot it and see how it holds up.

It is probably going to crack and chip.

I do hope that it holds together for you, I really like the paintjob. Next time though, you may want to use something like SEM's Flexible Primer Surfacer #39133. It provides a much better bond for the paint to follow.

I remember I painted my mask like a year ago, cracked only a tiny bit around the top edge of the visor. Hope yours is the same or better!!
