Tomorrow Im gonna start on my scratch built gauntlets. Heres how I intend on doing them.
Im gonna cut the syntra in one solid sheet, that fits my forearm. When I mold it I will put a thin piece of wood on the top of my forearm, this will give a flat base for me to start building the bulk of the gauntlets. The two ends of the syntra will meet on the inside of my forearm and be concealed with a loose sheet of syntra to conceal the crack or overlap. From that I will add on blocks of pine wood cut to the basic shape of the bulk. Pretty simple...cuz Im a simple guy.
What do u guys think? Will it work?
Also, i painted my chest armor but its so freakin shiney!!! what can i do to dull it down?
