i made thes over 2 days

first you need a persil clothes washing cleaner bottle ( as it is the right shape )

1. cut the top and bottom off the bottle

2. peal of the wrapper with the writing on it

3. sand down the outside so the glue it gets a bond

4. print out vinmacmans gauntlet template cut out the shapes on foamies

5. glue on to the gauntlet

6. add finer detailing

7. cover in pva glue 3-4 times to seal in the foamies

8. add a base coat of black or whatever colour you prefer

9. final paint then seal the paint ( i have stioll to do this )


here are some pics

That looks great, just goes to show, there is a million ways to make this stuff, and you do not have to be able to sculpt to make something awesome.

That does looks damn nice. It seems you had one of those "light bulb" moments...washing the dishes and realizing "that soap bottle will make a great Computer Gauntlet"
