I’m not sure why this welding helmet is painted this way; I’ve never seen one quite like it, so I wonder what the artistic statement is. Not that it really matters — the helmet will still do its job even if, worst case, the paint burns off.
If it had slightly different colors it would remind me a great deal of those dazzle-painted ships back in WWII. Either way, reader Cchauvet won’t have trouble finding this one in a pile of plain old gray helmets — which is probably the point.
