Paper Mache Armor and Prop Tutorial by FireLilyCosplay Paper Mache Armor and Prop Tutorial by FireLilyCosplay
At last, the long awaited Paper Mache Armor and Prop Tutorial!

I've had a lot of practice with this method, and this is the formula that works best for me, so I hope it can help you build your armor and props with ease. I really enjoy working with my hands and making armor pieces using various methods, so please don't hesitate to ask questions if you have any - I'll be glad to answer them!

Liquitex. Brand doesn't really matter to me since it's just used on a prop - I get whatever is most cost effective.

Would this stand up to whacking with pool noodle swords reinforced with fiberglass?

I assume so?  I've never tried, so I'm not the best to ask!

For which piece - the Athena Pauldron? I made straps from vinyl, but I've also used leather, webbing, and thick cotton.

hmmmm, i got a question:

Isn't chipboard sturdy and flexible at a smal point? I'm trying to make two bracelet like armor pieces for my forearms and my doubt whether i should use chip board or printed cardboard or duplex card stock?
