    Silver paint. I've been scraping off the outer layer of red to bring it out in the scratches.
    So you didn't sand or prime the gauntlets before painting?

    Merely sanded, gouged, etc. Then put silver paint in the gouges, and started putting the red on.

    This is what happens when I'm bored and try to come up with trophy item things...yes, that's a real tooth from something. Grossed out Dessel with it.

    Thanks. It probably is a deer tooth, considering the amount of deer skulls hanging in our garage.

    Here's a closer view of the gauntlets. I put a slight brown wash on them, and I can't do too much work on them until I get more elastic.


    And here's the piece I'm putting on top of the gauntlets. The paint job needs to be finished, and I'm going to cut sections of it out so that the red shows through. This was cut from a ice cream bucket.

    There are a type of deer on Endor called Swirl Prongs. They are huge!

    Interesting...I don't know if the tooth is big enough for that, though.

    Just need to come up with some trophy animal to assign the tooth to. The knives, well...someone died when I took those.

    And Dessel didn't like them tested on him. Though they're just decorations.

    I was hoping to get some signs for the armor today, but couldn't, unfortunately.

    I tried making up some rough kneepads today, out of boredom. Still having many beat-up pieces of armor.

    Nice kneepad. Definitely looks like its seen better days; I guess that comes from using them.

    The weathering on that is pretty good. Looks like mud or rust...nice job with that!

    Thanks. I just cut it out of an ice cream bucket, then painted it.

    Of course, when I went to paint the other kneepad, the spray paint fritzed on me. But I did find the spikes for the gauntlets...maybe post those later. I'm still too short on elastic.

    Here's a mock-up of my gauntlets.





    Close-up of the damage on the base:


    Kneepads-I put a slight black wash over that gnawed out piece on the left side.

    I got some signs and a pair of gloves today. Also got the basic weathering done on my shoulder bells, and the detail painted on one of them. Still need to put the different washes and such on top of it.

    I'll try to get some pictures up tomorrow night.

    I like how you're building up on the soccer gear. I don't know about the screws and cotton strap though, perhaps if you used some extra plastic, or maybe even leather?
