    Hey everyone


    can some iron man experts give me some advice.


    ive recently got myself a set of iron man hands in fiberglass. It's a little big and I had to trim the fingers down to fit my fingers.


    When I first put them on, they are all nice and straight. But when I move a little, the fingers gets all wonky and doesn't sit well








    Here it is after I move my fingers alittle













    I have brought some of those red silicone kitchen ribbed mats to go inbetween the fingers. Will this enough to fix my problem?


    any tips will be great
    thanks in advance

    One way you can attach the fingers is to glue them directly to a glove or another way is to use thin elastic glued inside the fingers which keeps them aligned when you flex your fingers there are a lot of ideas on here just search iron man gloves

    As was already mentioned, and my first question....Why not glue the fingers to the glove?

    I used guitar wire inside the sides of each finger epoxyed in place to keep them all straight.

    I don't want to sound like an idiot but are guitar strings slighty elasticated? how are you able to bend your fingers?

    I use Gorilla Glue and glue my fingers to a cloth glove.

    What i did:

    1. Connect the individual parts at the top-side(inside), using 5mm wide elastic band (with glue of course). This way you can bend your fingers and wenn no hands inside the fingers wil stay in a nice position.
    2. At the left and right side of the fingers use a guitar string or an other rough kord. This wil keep the single parts allinged.

    To join each finger to the glove, I used dyed elastic band (coloured in red sharpie after dyeing)

    I tried Mockles ribbed rubber in between, but my fatty fingers meant it couldn't work, so I've left it as just silk gloves dyed at the moment (tried puff paint in it--- but might not)

    I still use Mockles rubber for the wrist
