Make Chest Armor From Papier Mache

armor tutorial header

Armor can be made from so many materials – it always surprises me. I know I’ve shared several tutorials already on this subject, but I’ll continue to do so to convince everyone (and myself) that you don’t have to own fancy equipment or spend a lot of money to make convincing armor. This visual tutorial by EnjiNight will show you how to use paper mache and craft foam to create a lovely piece of chest armor.

Materials include: duct tape, an old t-shirt, newspaper, wallpaper glue, craft foam, and a few other things. The first step includes makinng a duct tape body form over an old t-shirt. You can put the form on a mannequin or stuff it with clothes or plush toys. Here’s a sample of EnjiNight’s tutorial:
