My father was an automotive paint salesman but his hobby and true love and passion was restoring old military vehicles. "A Hollywood Company hired my father to paint over 1000 helmets to be worn by the actors and extras in the 1998 movie Saving Private Ryan. At one point, I remember his backyard was a sea of these turtles." Lots and lots of distressing and embossing on this one (a little out of my comfort zone). The background paper started out as light brown and I chalked, inked and painted it. It's still a little warped even after ironing it down. Downloaded the pic from the movie off the internet and all the helmets were pics taken by my Dad.
