Anyone airbrush helmets?

My helmet from my last bike doesn't match my new bike but I like my helmet and don't want to fork out the cash for a new one either. It's the blue/white/black arai rx7rr4 with the eagle's head on the sides. My plan is to just mask off all but the blue and air brush it kawi green. I used to air brush years ago but all the paints I used were water based. I need to know what kind of paints to use and any tip as I've only done this on paper before. Thanks for any input guys.

Mine were pretty complicated with lots of detail, he actually cut out small pieces of reflective vynl and worked them into the paint job! I paid $300 for the whole thing, it was a couple years ago so I don't know if his prices have gone up or down.
