Picture of Iron Man Mask Repaint & Mod

Now that I'm home from college for Winter Break, I have time for another project!

Just before Halloween I found an Iron Patriot (War Machine’s name in the Iron Man 3 movie) mask at Goodwill for $4. Being a huge Iron Man fan, I decided to pick it up hoping that I would be able to customize it in the future. Well today is that day!

This Instructable will detail how I modified the design of the mask, painted and weathered it, and added LED lights.

not sure if you are aware or not .. but that skull stencil you put on top of the mask is the punisher logo (another fine comic book antihero)
