I didn't use cardboard when making mine, I actually used heavy paper to form the general idea of my helmet... I Used less watery paper mache and just held up the mold and the helmet with my hands...It took me a while but my helmet held up fairly well....I'll probably end up using it as a form to make myself a leather helmet sometime this year...

Before applying the paper mache, I cover the entire helmet frame with masking tape. This will protect the cardboard from getting too soggy. Also, I like to apply the paper mache to the inside of the helmet first. After it dries, it forms additional support for the outside.

I wished I'd read this about 24 hours ago. My helmet now has 1 layer of strips on the outside and is in serious need of reinforcement.
That I needed masking tape occurred to me last night at about 2:00 a.m.
Thanks for the helpful tips.
