Jane Foster Breastplate Build


New Member
I built a replica of the breasplate worn by Jane Foster in Thor 2 over the past couple of weeks.

Hammered from 20g mild steel sheet and masked with vinyl that I cut on a silhouette.


Etched using a 5A, 30V power supply running at 4.8A for about an hour in a table salt (NaCl) solution. Armor anode (+) other plate as cathode (-). Both submerged in the solution.

Final Product:
