Make Wonder Woman's Bracers part 3

In this part of the tutorial we finish the bracers by adding the straps and sealing everything.

 

 

 

There are four oblong marks on the bracer. These are for the straps. Go ahead and cut those holes out.

Now we need something to act as straps on the bracers. You have a lot of options and you can improvise anything that works for you. String would work, shoelaces would work.

I make some straps with craft foam.

 

Apply tape ot the foam

I made my straps with craft foam. And I applied packing tape to both sides of the foam to make the straps strong.

Note that because of the shape of the bracers you should end up with two different length straps.

 

Cut two straps

Simply loop those straps through the holes like this. I used small pieces of velcro as the fastening mechanism between the ends of the straps. In the picture you can see cellophane tape on them. That is just to hold things together while the glue sets on the velcro pieces.

Apply the straps

 

And that's it. All we need to do is seal them with something. Sealing them will preserve them, protect them and keep the colors bright and vibrant. I used Mod Podge. And you hav the option, with mod podge, to brush it on or spray it on. For this project I used the spray on.

Mod Podge dries clear in approximately 15-20 minutes and can be sanded to a smooth finish. Apply with brush or sponge applicator. Close container after each use. Clean up with water while wet. Once dry, Mod Podge cannot be removed. Use as a puzzle saver, a sealer glue, a quick finish, a textured finish,or a build-up finish." Non-toxic.

 

That's It! Your Wonder Woman Bracers are complete. You are ready to block flying bullets :)
