I drew a sketch of the art deco eagle I had seen and used it to make a template of the eagle wings. I transfered the outline of the wings to some 18 gauge sheet metal and rough cut the wings out with a metal shear. I finished shaping the sheet metal with a drum sander bit on a rotary tool. I drew the interior lines of the wings and stamped them in with a peice of wire hanger, cut to fit, and a big hammer. The peice of sheet metal that I had was painted so I sanded the old paint off and repainted the wings with a metallic aluminum enamle paint. I colored the stamped lines in with some black, just to make them stand out more. I used 3M double sided adhesive tape to attach the wings to my son's helmet, now we are both thrilled with the look of his custome bike helmet.
