your helmet should be fine so long as you use waterbased acrylics, and then clear coat with another acrylic for added toughness.
I had an idea about a decade ago, to make helmets with clear plastic covers, that you could paint yourself...from the inside, so it'd havee that clear coated look. That was before the "in-molded" helmets, which I admit are much nicer that the older style where the tape kept coming off and then you'd lose your lid.
Ideas,....hmmm give it a bug theme, and add pipe cleaner legs, and wire/mesh wings.
