Dressing Up, Part 2

Link's shield is complete! After a minor setback yesterday, it's finally done. I had lots of fun making it, but I'm very glad to mark this one off my to-do list.

Here's a link to the progress shots:

Link Shield Complete!
While finishing the backside, a small area of paint stuck to my work surface and pulled off some paint. After pouting for a few minutes, I patched it up. Not before almost accidentally destroying the whole piece. Remember kiddos, spray paint EATS FOAM! Always have a protective layer of primer over your foamcore.

Link Shield Back
The back is all Duck Tape. That stuff is handy, no doubt!

Link Shield Detail
The gem is a piece of origami paper.

Duck Tape handles!

The sides are taped also, and spraypainted. 

I can't wait until the birthday party! Mazzy is going to look wonderful!
