In this part of the tutorial we finish the project by adding some details and painting it.

Part 1 of this tutorial is here



Add glue rivets

Now that the armor is built you can have some fun decorating it. Hot glue gun is great for this. You can add rivets and cover the wire with glue so they look like rivets too.


Make some ornaments

I also had some fun with the glue gun by making an ornament on the elbow piece. Fun stuff. You can do all kinds of ornamental and decorative work on this armor. You can paint it, Put stickers on it, maybe a coat of arms? The sky is the limit.

Paint it! I used a silver spray paint.


And that's it! You are done. Now make the other one! And send me a pic. I will put the pic on my website and email you a certificate of contribution as a thanks.
