No matter how many times I see Lord of the Rings, the Witch-king of Angmar always frightens me. The leader of the Nazgûl is scary, and if you want to be feared wherever you go, you can make a replica of his helmet. Instructables user Nate Space used patterns from The RPF and printed the templates and traced them onto foam board and EVA foam. The next step involves shaping the parts and gluing them together:
To get the shape I used a heat gun and very carefully heated the foam board until I could bend it! (too much and it will burn). Don’t burn your fingers when shaping the foam, wear gloves or something.
The EVA foam is much easier to shape than the foam board as it doesn’t burn as easily.
Once all the pieces are the right shape then you can glue them all together!
When the glue is completely dry, it’s time to paint it with acrylics:
First I undercoated it in black acrylic paint then dry brushed white over it to get a rough weathered texture!
I added some features like the horns and two small circles of foam to make them look like nails.
We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
