only thing though about buyin her a airbrush to paint your helmet, not every artist is good at every medium. not only that, it wil have to be cleared with the right stuff. clear out of a can doesnt last and scratches off ez
i can paint and airbrush, but you buy me a canvas and oils and brushes, and let me paint a family portrait for you, you might wanna beat me up after you see the outcome..lol but that same portrait done in a medium im good at, like airbrush, then im paint-god to you after you see the painting..
most good airbrushes go for about what was said here, $169 for an simple iwata. but add another $40 or $50 and you will have enuf to get someone like me to do something kool...
i use materials that are formulated to not mess with the integrity of your lid. waterbased acrylics dont hold up as well..even with urethane clear on it.
im not knockin a fellow artist, she may just give you what you are looking for, at the price that suits you.
good luck..post the photos when shes done..id like to see it
