I have made a lot of armor but I never bother with making the dents and scrapes. Now that I'm upgrading my personal armor, I want to make the physical damage but don't want to weaken the armor.
I have read that dremmeling the damage in can weaken the plastic so I just want to make some indentations. I was thinking of either heating the area with a heat gun and then pressing a metal rod, screwdriver or something similar in to make the dent or actually heating a metal rod or screwdriver tip and then making the dents with the hot metal. Anyinsights?
