I recently made a Sayaka costume from Madoka Magica and decided to record some of my progress. I learn a lot by watching Youtube videos and thought I'd try something new and record one of my own. Please ignore my multiple outfit changes - I made this over the course of a couple of weeks.
As I explain in the video, this was my first time making a breastplate so everything was a learning experience. Feel free to pick and choose methods to use for your own future projects - hopefully my fumbling around will come in handy!
Here are the materials I used:
- Craft foam - Strapless bra - Elmers Glue and hot glue - Zipper and snaps - Paper clay - Sand paper - EASY CAST RESIN (one box) - Acrylic paint, metallic paint, varnish - Gold piping
Also, a lot of people have had questions about the resin painting step, which I didn't include in the video. To do this, mix your Easy Cast Resin according to the instructions on the packaging. Next, instead of pouring it into a mold, you will use the resin like paint. Take a disposable sponge brush and brush a thin layer of resin onto your project. If the piece is porous like a bra, it will take multiple coats to achieve a hard consistency inside and out. It's great if you're trying to make something more durable!
UPDATE! After doing a test run of the costume, I made a couple of alterations to the breastplate. I added a layer of Super Glaze (I recorded the process here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VyDXs1...) and replaced the zipper with eyelets/grommets so that I can lace it up the back, ensuring a tighter fit.
