2nd June 2010: Shoulder pads Here is progress of my first pad until its final stages! (The second one is drying from paper mache ^^)
In the first photo Is the foam being paper mached and held into place on a toilet brush xD Yes only thing I had that wasn't having to do it on my shoulder lol.
This is the first layer of mache to keep it hard but flexible so it can move without me worrying ill snap it while moving my arms about.
The second photo is with the silver leather fabric attached and hand sewn into place. This took about 30 minutes to do as I was trying to make it look like armour, so I had trouble trying to make it cover the surface without it having air inside. Hard work!
The third photo is showing you what it will look like with the button. The button isn't attached yet as it will be attached the to coat not the actual armour. It's to keep it in place on the day and its for details that function! Woop XD
The fourth photo is me painting on the white details around the edging using the normal masking tape and paint ^^
Final photo is the end so far ^^ Still might cover it in clear varnish to make it harder and durable, Have yet to decide.
Hope you like shoulder pads! Will show both later on tonight ^^
