With the Game of Thrones season seven finale approaching, let’s look way back to the first season and Khal Drogo. Instructables user rainingfiction is putting together a Khal Drogo ensemble for her father and figured out a way to make his metal belt for about $30. She spent 10 hours making the medallions with horses on them with polymer clay, resin, paint, and a few other supplies.
She started by sculpting one of the medallions with the horse symbol and one of the beads on the belt so she could make a mold to replicate them. She explained the mold process:
The mold is made from a two part putty that I rolled together. I carefully pressed it over the cured clay into all of the tiny details, and let it cure for 30 minutes.
Then over the coarse of a day I make 8 copies of the cookie out of two part resin. I followed the same process with the beads.
Get the scoop on the full process over at Instructables. No need to take your Dothraki horde with you.
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
