This is an acrylic based paint which means you can water it down with water. We feel this is an acceptable compromise on the original paint so we can legally send this paint to you! This paint is being sold to do one helmet but you will most likely be able to get two helmets painted from it.
This helmet paint has been manufactured to an original WW2 specification and is probably as close as you will get to an original German WWII paint for early war helmets and reissues.
Some Notes on this WW2 German Helmet paint:
Used on German Luftwaffe M35, M40, M42 and M38 paratrooper helmets until 1945. It is sometimes defined as old No. 4.
This RAL 7016 Anthrazitgrau is not the postwar 7016 colour that you can buy from any outlet!
The RAL colour chart was revised in 1953 and 1961 and thus many RAL colours received other names, so this all adds to the rich confusion of German Helmet paint!
We can send up to 4 of these containers worldwide - you cannot do this with spray, enamel or petroleum based paints.
The last but one picture shows it applied with texture, the final picture shows it on aM35 helmet without texture and aged.
