I'm new to armor building and have gotten a couple good tips from here before, so I decided to join up.
I want a set of Mandalorian armor and so far the only supply I have is the vacuum for the vacuum table. Which, since I'm using Sintra, I don't need.
I do have some templates from wizardoflight, guess I'll need those. Though I think I need Smalls.
How do I shape sintra to my body shape? Do I need a mannequin or molds of some sort? How do you build molds? What do you do to curve the pieces to fit and how do you form more complicated pieces like knee armor and guantlets? Is that where I'd need molds and a vacuum table?
How do you make the cod pieces? I'll take any help. Thanks in advance and hopefully I can go to C5 in Madalorian armor.
By the way,
Does anyone know if local 501st garrison members could help me build since I plan on joining them and they know what they're doing?
