Liquid Colour Design reveals world’s first helmet to feature Diamond Elite Concept coating and 24 ca
Liquid Colour Design has revealed the world’s first racing helmets painted with Elite Diamond Concept coating and finished with 24 carat gold leaf.
Designed by fellow artist, Brandon Seaber, Liquid Colour Design founder Iain Baldwin applied the luxurious racing helmet finish at his paint shop in Co Antrim, Northern Ireland. Produced by Elite Diamond Concept, the special coating is combined with diamonds and glass to give an extra tough finish and unique shine. The diamond coating was developed for the hulls or the interiors of super yachts and jet aircraft and has already been applied to one of the most Luxurious high-performance sports boats in the world. The Stilo helmets were painted by Liquid Colour Design for world-renowned Italian racing driver, Raffaele Marciello. Two versions of the design were created for Marciello, a red version and a blue version. The painting of the two helmets took two weeks, with 38 grams of paint applied to the red helmet and 41grams of paint applied to the blue.
Iain Baldwin, owner of Liquid Colour Designs said: “We love every opportunity to create something truly unique and collaborating with our friend Bandon Seaber on this incredibly luxurious finish has allowed us to create something special with exciting new materials.” Liquid Colour Design’s award-winning paint shop has previously painted helmets for international racing drivers including former F1 driver Martin Brundle and WRC driver Kris Meeke. Iain’s specialist studio also creates artwork for all forms of motorsports of motorcycle helmets, plus bespoke liveries for cars, trucks, helicopters and aircraft.
