So I’m starting to paint some of my armor. This may not be the final paint application… but it’s a good start! I simply painted with my fingers using metallic silver, copper and black acrylic paint. Yay finger painting!
Some more updates with my Hawke armor. If anyone has any questions or suggestions feel free to post a comment!
This is the chainmail for the left arm, pretty much finished (minus some painting to distress it)
Then I made a template out of craft foam for the belt to make sure I had all the measurements right.
I was thinking about making the belt out of actually leather, but that can get kind of pricey. So I decided to try and cheaper option first and see if I liked it. I figured if I hated it I could always fork over the extra money for the fancy leather…. I basically perfected my foam template and then covered it with fake leather, which I will later paint to make it look more realistic.
Not too shabby for someone who can barely sew patches in her clothes! 😉
