I cut mine out piece by piece starting with the gem design then the thorns and then the vine Just line everything up with what you've already traced as you go! Be careful at the edges! Since they're sloped they might need a little alteration from your original lines Now just paint all your traced designs in with acrylics mine took 2 coats for the darker colors and 3 for the white and give your shield a good clear coat to protect from chipping! For carrying I used some E6000 to attach some elastic straps You wanna glue the crap out of these things put plenty underneath and some on top it'll soak into the elastic just in case! I used one big strap for my arm and I held onto the smaller one and it was pretty comfy all day Now get out there and defend the earth makelovelycosplay Here’s how I made my Rose Quartz shield!
