A beautiful knight's shield made from foam rubber sleeping mat material put together with double-sided adhesive tape, cloth tape and painted with Plus Color Craft Paint.
How to do it
Draw a shield free-hand on the foam rubber sleeping mat material in the size you want your shield.
The parts used for the shield are: 2 large pieces for the shield itself 1 small "shield" for decoration, 6-12 squares to look like rivets and 2 strips for the handle.
Cut four holes in one shield as shown here.
If necessary strengthen the straps for handles with cloth tape before attaching them.
Attach the straps through the four holes as shown and fix them with cloth tape.
Assemble the two large pieces with double-sided adhesive tape.
Attach the decorative parts, the small shield and the “rivets” with double-sided adhesive tape.
Paint a design onto the shield. The example here is achieved by dabbing Plus Color Craft Paint onto a foam stamp and then pressing the design onto the shield.
The shield is now finished.
