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.

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
