perplexingly:

There’s always space for yet another armor tutorial, right? (ノ´ヮ´)ノ*:・゚✧

Note that the armor I drew would be worn around 15th century, the more into the future the less and less components knight’s armor had (i. e. in early 14th century instead of greaves a knight would wear long boots only; in 12th century knights didn’t wear plate breastplates and instead a chain mail only). Also the design of armor pattern changed by year and was different in every country (i.e. in eastern Europe armors, while still looking European, were heavily influenced by Turkey). so just make sure you always do research whenever drawing an armor. And one more thing to keep in mind is that armors were expensive, knights wearing a full plate armor weren’t an often sight.

Some links that may be useful:

This is the tutorial I used making this. Some things are good, and some not so much.

Instead of using glue and fabric on the back, I spoke with someone at Dragon*Con last year who used duct tape on the back of hers, and she said it worked amazingly well. So I did that. Use a really, really good duct tape, or else it won’t stick. Layer it well.

Go to the craft store and buy a 3x6’ roll of foamie foam. I found mine at Joanns for around $6.

Also, DO NOT use Future floor polish to seal the rub-n-buff. It will ruin your coloring. Maybe they changed the formula since this was written, but don’t use it. I did two breast plates because of this.

If you’re going to glue something to the foam, use fabric glue, it’s flexible and sticks really well. (I like Aileen’s fabric fusion.) And do it before the rub-n-buff goes on there.

Thing I learned today because of this:

You cannot glue things to the piece once the RnB is on. I had a snap and elastic set up with a buckle facing that I spent a couple hours making look perfect, then sat back to let the E-6000 set. It dried, but peels right off. Save your time and your money. Lace it up.

This really is a fantastic tutorial for making foam armor. I just tweaked it according to things I’d learned last year at the convention. Don’t be afraid to fail a couple times at this- it’s not so expensive that you have to have it right the first go around. 

Screw ups make room for creativity. Embrace them. Because I screwed up several times, and Faramir is still going to look pretty amazing.
