Great idea...but your going to have to put ALOT of coats of heavy varnish on that mask if you dont want it pealing off within a few days. Acrylic will peel and chip easily so your going to have to be careful if you want it to last. Good luck, its a snazy lookin mask, very simple but good lookin.

Looks pretty good...but there are a few problems I've noticed:

1. Put a white primer on it if you want the yellow to show up on your new mask, even the blue, otherwise the yellow will look very dull and dark, same with the blue.

2. why do you have Quebec on the side when you have Colorado on the top and side, wouldn't it have made more sens to put Quebec on the top and Colorado on both sides?

I was takin a peek at the Nords/Rockies/Avs mask and the front view caught my eye, as the logo under the cage looked VERY familiar...and I quickly realized why-I made that CAQ logo for the Quebec Bulldogs in my NHL Revivals project a few years ago :D

heh, all the logos I'd made that somebody could use, and it's that one :P

the sweden mask, good idea, hope you have a good plan of attack.

Neon, the primer is a really great idea to have a nice looking finish. I remember doing the exact same thing when I painted a mask for a friend. He actually wanted the panther on Vanbiesbrouck mask, so I had to take my time... But the result was looking good and very close to the original.

I'll try to find a picture of it and post it here, although it's been a long time since I've seen pictures! (and I think they're black and white...)

1. yes i am using a primer

2. the positioning of the logos was never considered as i have the 2 biggest logos on top, the 2 middle sized logos on the sides and the smallest logo on the chin.

Is that a Louisville TPS street mask from Canadian Tire? Whenever I'm up in canada I hit up the tire to grab a mask for another roller hockey goalie in the states. But here is what I'm doin with mine. the straps and buckles suck ass so I had my wife make me a heavy duty strap system like my regular goalie helmet has and I replaced those crappy mask fastners with metal ones, but I had to drill 2 new holes for the top part of the mask to get everything to sit right. I'll post progess as I go along.

I used that mask when I did ball hockey in gym last year with the Koho pads. It was before the CCM branded chest/arm protection came out so all I had was a crappy chest protector I borrowed from my school. That mask worked very well, took quite a beating (a few slaps to the head, behind pushed over and smackin my head on the ground, etc) but I never bothered to paint it due to the fact I didnt have enough time to and I wouldnt be using enough that it would be worth doing. If I hadn't been in grade 12 at the time, then maybe it would have been a good idea to paint it, but oh well.

the first few sketches only have one crown on each side but as i have made changes as i go i added a 3rd crown just above the cage (in the same spot as the leaf in the canada/quebec/ colorado mask). and the flage now start above the crown on top instead of above the cage.

That looks really good, the only problem I have is your posting Image Shack links and those suck ass. Try using Photobucket, it is MUCH better for hosting and posting images.

Beautiful work - what finish and paint did you use? It has an almost metallic sheen to it, like some of the pearl flake paints that football teams use.

What's the small detail on the middle of the chin? I couldn't make it out from the picture.

Goalie wearing #12? I've seen it in soccer, but that's extremely unusual for hockey of any kind.

yup she's almost done. the blue paint is a metallic paint. i havn't done the clear coat on it yet. and the cage is currently drying (it's yellow). the explination of the goalies number is he is a forward in ice hockey and kept his number while playing in net.

thanks for the comments
