How to Steampunk a Moped
I got bored during my tour in Guam. I bought my first moped for cheap. I wanted something to save on gas while I drove to work, and let my wife have the car while I was out of the house. The moped was a pretty horrid white color. I had been watching a ton of DIY steampunk cosplay videos for some reason, and decided I could do something to make my moped unique.
Here is a steampunk helmet and goggles that I made before the moped. I did these for fun and to become more accustom with the painting techniques. I made errors on these items, so I wouldn't make any major errors on the bigger project.
It really didn't take me too long to make this helmet. It took about 2 hours with some extra foam for the plates.
List of items needed to complete this project.
Acrylic Black Paint
Hot Glue Gun and Glue
Rustproofing Black Primer
Gold Rustproofing Spray Paint
Acrylic Brown paint
Arcylic White Paint
