Gladiator Helmet Restoration – Roman Warrior replica
A beautiful Gladiator helmet restoration to honor the roman warrior. This time I restore a very mean looking old Roman warrior helmet from Rome in Italy.
I bought this helmet long time ago on a vacation in Italy where we saw a show with warriors who were fighting. It`s a replica of a real Gladiator Helmet from many centuries back in time where there were gladiators in Italy and Greece. Long before I was even thinking about doing restoration videos.
If you know anything about gladiators or warrior helmets please leave a comment with your knowledge – thanks!
The helmet was very rusty. It has been outside in my garden for many years as a decoration. I removed all the rust on the helmet with brushing and washing. I painted the inside of the helmet with primer and black matte.
I produced 4 spikes and mounted them to the helmet to make it look even more rough. I also painted the front side of the helmet with water based black color and brushed 70% of it off again to accomplish that ancient gladiator warrior look.
I added 24 Carat leaf gold on the helmet to give it that special Gladiator helmet character they had in Rome back in time.
It’s was a super cool restoration project and If you enjoyed my video too, please like and comment. That will mean a lot to me!
