Joffrey Baratheon may be a despicable character, but the king does have nice threads. He wears richly embroidered tunics and an intricate crown – it’s understandable if you want to dress like him. Instructables user xeijix came up with a 3D model to print the crown on a PP3D printer. The printer worked on one half of the crown at a time; here’s what he did to assemble them:
After removing the scaffolding, I needed to sand the the crown a bit.
The crown from the show had a lot of textured marks on the crown, I opted not to add those textures. For my purposes, it wasn’t that important.
After sanding, I glued the pieces together with superglue.
I painted the crown with a can of Krylon gold spray paint.
After it’s painted, you could add pre-made jewels from the craft store or you could cast your own with resin and pigment.
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.
