Well first you get a bunch of stuff that look like parts of gauntlets.

them you put them together with this

so that it looks like this

I would love to read a how-to. This is the same method that I was going to do as to the build up, but unfortunately I don't have access to a Vac-forming table nor the space to build one.

What I would really like to see are some patterns, because I may just go the route of building them out of sintra or sheet styrene (however doing them in wood would alleviate a lot of bondo or filler) because they are not for a costume. They are for a display that I am currently working on. Thanks!!!

If you did a solid build up then you could allways make a mold off of them and cast them out of resin . If it is for a static display then the weight of resin would not mater so much.
