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:
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
